Quentin Tarantino admits Kill Bill crash 'biggest regret' of his life

As to the choking, Tarantino said the way the scene was shot was actually Thurman's idea.

"And then it takes this little S-curve, and she's not prepared for it". The more Thurman protested, the more furious Tarantino became. He said he believed at the time that it was "safe".

"While we were getting ready to do Kill Bill, Uma tells me that he had done the same thing to her". "That was one of my most horrendous mistakes, that I didn't take the time to run the road, one more time, just to see what I would see", he said.

"I was assuming that when we did it, we would have maybe a pole behind Uma that the chain would be wrapped around so it wouldn't be seen by the camera, at least for the wide shot", the director told Deadline. But when Thurman drove the vehicle in the opposite direction for the scene, there was an S-curve that, he claims, led her to crash. I didn't mean to do it.

Sharing footage of the crash - which she claims was given to her by Tarantino himself - she wrote: "i post this clip to memorialize it's full exposure in the nyt by Maureen Dowd". "They lied, destroyed evidence, and continue to lie about the permanent harm they caused and then chose to suppress", the actress wrote.

The story of the crash accompanied allegations made by Thurman that she was sexually assaulted by Weinstein at the Savoy Hotel in London. "She wanted to have it and dated the guy and.And by the way, we're talking about America's morals, not talking about the morals in Europe and everything".

While Thurman does deem Tarantino guilty of some things, the actor points a finger squarely at the movie's producers, calling Weinstein, Lawrence Bender and E. Bennett Walsh "solely responsible" for the subsequent cover-up.

PadMan challenge spreads over social media like wildfire
PadMan is based on "The Sanitary Man of Sacred Land", a short story from Twinkle Khanna's book, The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad . People always make documentaries but they don't want to make commercial films because they want to shy away from the issue.

"Harvey has tremendous affection for Uma Thurman nevertheless he denies these allegations", the spokesperson said in a statement to HuffPost. Thurman claims that Weinstein's company at the time, Miramax, withheld the footage from her in an attempt to keep her from suing.

"We understand that members of the production team have stated to individuals in the media that Mr. Weinstein had nothing to do with the aftermath of the crash", the statement continued. I'll only do it twice, at the most, three times.

CNN has reached out to studio representatives for comment.

Tarantino told Deadline that he knew that the Times article was coming, and that he'd worked with Uma to find the original footage of the auto crash this year.

Quentin Tarantino and actress Uma Thurman arrive to the premiere of "Kill Bill II" at the Palais des Festivals during the 57th Annual International Cannes Film Festival May 16, 2004 in Cannes, France. "I believe her. And if you want to do Kill Bill, you need to make this right". For some reason there is a lot of hay being made out of this. "I can explain why I did exactly what I did, but my question is, what's the fucking problem?" He admits he did both, but said that Thurman was totally fine with it. "Who else should do it?"

Back in 2009, Digital Spy reported that Kruger spoke about the infamous scene in an interview, saying, "I get strangled, which was especially weird because you feel it when someone is choking you, so it was an interesting day at the office".
