Quentin Tarantino defended Roman Polanski’s alleged rape of a 13-year-old girl in a rediscovered 2003 interview

Quentin Tarantino, in a 2003 interview with Howard Stern that recently resurfaced, defended fellow director Roman Polanski from allegations he sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl.

"I am guilty, for putting her in that vehicle, but not the way that people are saying I am guilty of it", Tarantino told Deadline, claiming that nobody in the filming team that day considered the drive a stunt. Tarantino reviewed the day of the scene, saying that he "none of us ever considered it a stunt". Maybe we should have, but we didn't. "I can act all strangle-ey, but if you want my face to get red and the tears to come to my eye, then you kind of need to choke me". "But I'm sure I wasn't in a rage and I wasn't livid", he added.

Tarantino supported Thurman's assertions that he had asked her to drive at a particular speed so that her hair would be blowing.

"It was heartbreaking", said Tarantino.

He said: " I told her it would be OK. "And she agreed with it, she knew it would look good and she trusted me to do it". And it wasn't. I was wrong.

They still have the best defensive rating in the league, and are continuing to give opposing teams struggles. Curry, Durant and Thompson combine to average 74.0 PPG and shoot 43.3 percent from beyond the arc.

In the story, she alleges that the director pressured and manipulated her into driving an unsafe auto. She didn't get hurt. I do not believe though with malicious intent, ' the actress explained to her fans and followers. In it, Tarantino defends convicted rapist and director Roman Polanski, and goes back and forth with Stern and Quivers, suggesting Polanski be absolved. "To me, when you use the word rape, you're talking about violent, throwing them down - it's like one of the most violent crimes in the world". Throwing the word rape around is like throwing the word racist around.

Mira Sorvino, who dated Quentin Tarantino at one point, had also been harassed by Harvey Weinstein. The article largely focused on Thurman's sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein, but she also discussed her experience with Tarantino filming "Kill Bill", which was produced by Weinstein's studio. So the idea is, I'm doing it, I'm taking responsibility. Thurman claims that Weinstein's company at the time, Miramax, withheld the footage from her in an attempt to keep her from suing.

Tarantino said the crash was a result of various small things presenting themselves in a bad way. "I knew he was lying, that everything Uma was saying was the truth". He tried to shove himself on me. "But at least I had some say, you know?" "Again, you're killing him with the pills and booze thing". Footage of the eventual crash is included in the New York Times article. I talked to Uma and I said, look. "But a trust was broken", he admitted.

The actress revealed she fell out with the filmmaker over the incident, which landed her in the hospital, during a weekend interview with the New York Times, telling journalist Maureen Dowd she was pressured into driving an unsafe convertible while on the Kill Bill set in Mexico in 2003. "There was an element of closure". "She had been denied it, from Harvey Weinstein, being able to even see the footage". "The steering wheel was at my belly and my legs were jammed under me", she says.

"She's flying along, and she thinks it's a straight road and as far as she can see, it is a straight road out her windshield. Consequently, I realize. that is a real thing". "In fact, I would probably be more insistent with a guy".
