Quentin Tarantino Apologises to Uma Thurman
Hollywood director, Quentin Tarantino, has apologised to actress, Uma Thurman, over a stunt gone wrong while filming “Kill Bill Vol. 2” in 2004.
The 54-year-old director has acknowledged that he is responsible for insisting that the 47-year-old actress perform the car stunt that resulted in a crash that nearly killed her.
Tarantino has called the incident – which left Thurman with permanent damage to her neck and knees – one of the biggest regrets of his life.
On Monday afternoon, Thurman posted a video to her Instagram account showing footage of her losing control of a stunt car and crashing into a palm tree.
Thurman said that she told Tarantino that she was uncomfortable doing the stunt, but that he had pressured her into it. According to the actress, he said: “I promise you the car is fine. It’s a straight piece of road.”
The Golden Globe winner said that, while she doesn’t think Tarantino’s negligence was malicious, the incident strained relations between the two for years.
The actress has also accused the film’s producers, including Harvey Weinstein, of trying to cover up the accident and suppress the video evidence.
Thurman added that the cult film director had finally atoned for the crash by giving her access to the film footage.
