In addition to speaking out about disgraced filmmaker Harvey Weinstein and his alleged unwanted advances, Thurman recounted how her director for Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill spit in her face, choked her with a chain and persuaded her to operate a vehicle she deemed in the interview "a deathbox", which resulted in a crash. She's talked about it since, 'No, he didn't really do anything to me.

"And it spins her like a top. It was heartbreaking." He called it "the biggest regret of my life".

Thurman said she tried to obtain footage of the crash, but Miramax would only grant her permission if she signed a contract that released them "of any consequences of my future pain and suffering", she said. She said she held the film's producers and "the notorious Harvey Weinstein" for covering up and refusing to give her the video for years.

The director said the accident, in a sequence he had convinced her was safe, damaged his relationship with his famous star. If we need to do it a second time, we will. "I would never react to her this way". "We had to go through storage facilities, pulling out boxes". Again, this was 15 years ago, and we pull out of the boxes. "I've got to kind of commit to doing this to you". Then, we found the crash footage.

"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 wrote. "They lied, destroyed evidence, and continue to lie about the permanent harm they caused and then chose to suppress". I had been through so many rings of fire by that point.

A recent New York Times interview with Uma Thurman revealed that "Kill Bill" director Quentin Tarantino spat on her, and choked her with a chain, to get the performance he wanted.

The director said he had not considered the driving shot on the Mexico set to be a stunt at the time, before Thurman lost control of the Karmann Ghia and crashed into a palm tree. So I made Harvey apologise to Uma. "But a trust was broken", he admitted.

"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", she wrote. "And then the last four days, in what we thought would be a simple driving shot, nearly kills her".

"Wait a minute. If you have sex with a 13-year-old girl and you're a grown man, you know that that's wrong", Howard Stern interjected. He later pled down to unlawful sex with a minor.

The aftermath: He says the auto crash "affected me and Uma for the next two to three years". "It's not the same thing". To me, when you use the word "rape, ' you're talking about violent, throwing them down".

However, Thurman's auto crash was just one of a few that proved to be problematic for their friendship. "Throwing the word "rape" around is like throwing the word 'racist" around. "It doesn't apply to everything people use it for", he told Howard Stern in 2003.

"He was guilty of having sex with a minor", he continued.

"And so, in the 2003 inteview which has only resurfaced, Tarantino said, "[Polanski] didn't rape a 13-year-old.

"She wanted to have it". "And by the way, we're talking about America's morals, we're not talking about the morals of Europe and everything".

On the same day that the Pulp Fiction writer addressed Thurman's accusations, audio emerged of him defending director Roman Polanski's sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl in 1977, saying she was "down with it".
