The New York Times published an interview with Thurman on Saturday that accused disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of sexually assaulting her. The article also detailed an experience on “Kill Bill” where Tarantino forced her to execute a driving stunt that she did not feel comfortable doing herself.
The seat wasn’t screwed down properly, she said, so the car drifted off the road and smashed into a palm tree. As a result of the crash, Thurman received neck and knee injuries from which she still suffers today.
However, the actress wrote on Instagram that she does not believe there was any malicious intent behind Tarantino’s decision to have her do the stunt, though she found the situation “negligent to the point of criminality.”
