Quentin Tarantino Speaks Out About Uma Thurman 'Kill Bill' Crash: 'It Is The Biggest Regret of My Life'

Quentin Tarantino is opening up about Uma Thurman‘s Kill Bill car crash that almost killed her.

In an in-depth interview with Deadline, the 54-year-old director admits that he is “guilty” for putting Uma in the car “but not the way that people are saying I am guilty of it.”

“It’s the biggest regret of my life, getting her to do that stunt,” Quentin explained.

Quentin went on to explain that he did not force Uma to drive the car and he truly believed it to be safe.

“None of us ever considered it a stunt. It was just driving. None of us looked at it as a stunt. Maybe we should have, but we didn’t. I’m sure when it was brought up to me, that I rolled my eyes and was irritated. But I’m sure I wasn’t in a rage and I wasn’t livid. I didn’t go barging into Uma‘s trailer, screaming at her to get into the car,” Quentin said.

He added, “I told her it would be safe. And it wasn’t. I was wrong. I didn’t force her into the car. She got into it because she trusted me. And she believed me.”

Quentin noted that while they are still unsure why the accident occurred, it may have been in part due to a last minute change in the cars direction on the path.

“It was heartbreaking. Beyond one of the biggest regrets of my career, it is one of the biggest regrets of my life,” Quentin said.

Uma Thurman Elaborates on 'Kill Bill' Car Accident, Doesn't Blame Quentin Tarantino

Uma Thurman is speaking out to give more information on what happened after she was injured in a car accident on the Kill Bill set and explain why she forgives director Quentin Tarantino.

The actress spoke to The New York Times for an interview released this past weekend, in which she claimed Tarantino forced her to do the car stunt against her will.

The car crashed into a palm tree and Uma says she still experiences neck and knee pain from the injuries she suffered.

“i post this clip to memorialize it’s full exposure in the nyt by Maureen Dowd,” Uma wrote on Instagram with a clip of the car stunt gone wrong. “the circumstances of this event were negligent to the point of criminality. i do not believe though with malicious intent.”

Quentin Tarantino, was deeply regretful and remains remorseful about this sorry event, and gave me the footage years later so i could expose it and let it see the light of day, regardless of it most likely being an event for which justice will never be possible,” she said. “he also did so with full knowledge it could cause him personal harm, and i am proud of him for doing the right thing and for his courage.”

“THE COVER UP after the fact is UNFORGIVABLE. for this i hold Lawrence Bender, E. Bennett Walsh, and the notorious Harvey Weinstein solely responsible. they lied, destroyed evidence, and continue to lie about the permanent harm they caused and then chose to suppress,” Uma added. “the cover up did have malicious intent, and shame on these three for all eternity. CAA never sent anyone to Mexico. i hope they look after other clients more respectfully if they in fact want to do the job for which they take money with any decency.”

Uma Thurman Reveals She Almost Died in a Stunt That Quentin Tarantino Made Her Do

Uma Thurman has accused director Quentin Tarantino of forcing her to perform a stunt on the set of Kill Bill that almost killed her.

The actress told the New York Times that she was four days away from finishing the nine-month shoot for the two films when Tarantino said she would be driving the blue convertible and not a stunt performer.

Uma didn’t feel comfortable driving the car and says a teamster led her to believe the car might not be working well.

Quentin came in my trailer and didn’t like to hear no, like any director,” she says. “He was furious because I’d cost them a lot of time. But I was scared. He said: ‘I promise you the car is fine. It’s a straight piece of road.’”

Quentin told her to “‘hit 40 miles per hour or your hair won’t blow the right way and I’ll make you do it again.’ But that was a deathbox that I was in. The seat wasn’t screwed down properly. It was a sand road and it was not a straight road.”

In video footage shared by the Times, Uma can be seen driving down a winding road and then crash into a tree. “The steering wheel was at my belly and my legs were jammed under me. I felt this searing pain and thought, ‘Oh my God, I’m never going to walk again.’ When I came back from the hospital in a neck brace with my knees damaged and a large massive egg on my head and a concussion, I wanted to see the car and I was very upset. Quentin and I had an enormous fight, and I accused him of trying to kill me. And he was very angry at that, I guess understandably, because he didn’t feel he had tried to kill me.”

Uma says that it took her 15 years for her to obtain the footage and that Miramax tried to get her to sign a document “releasing them of any consequences of my future pain and suffering” in exchange for the footage. She didn’t sign it.

“When they turned on me after the accident, I went from being a creative contributor and performer to being like a broken tool,” Uma said.

Uma Thurman Details Harvey Weinstein's Alleged Attack on Her

Uma Thurman is ready to share her experience of allegedly being sexually assaulted by Harvey Weinstein.

The actress gave a powerful response to the Me Too movement back in November when asked to comment on the allegations building against Weinstein. She said at the time, “I’ve been waiting to feel less angry. And when I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say.”

Now, Uma is speaking out in an interview with The New York Times, in which she details how Weinstein allegedly attacked her in a hotel room. She says she already knew him well at the time as it was after he released her movie Pulp Fiction.

Uma says that in a Paris hotel room, Harvey got into his bathrobe and led her to a steam room, but that when she told him “this is ridiculous,” he got flustered and jumped out. She says he later attacked her in a hotel room in London.

“It was such a bat to the head. He pushed me down. He tried to shove himself on me. He tried to expose himself. He did all kinds of unpleasant things,” she said. “But he didn’t actually put his back into it and force me. You’re like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard. I was doing anything I could to get the train back on the track. My track. Not his track.”
