Uma Thurman vs. Quentin Tarantino: More Hollywood hypocrisy

Quentin Tarantino Uma Thurman and Harvey Weinstein at the premiere of

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.

Uma Thurman and Harvey Weinstein attend the 2016 amfAR New York Gala at Cipriani Wall Street on February 10, 2016 in New York City. "For a myriad of reasons".

In an Instagram post on Monday, Ms. Thurman praised Mr. Tarantino for helping her obtain the footage when he knew it could do him personal harm.

Thurman called the circumstances "negligent to the point of criminality", blaming "the notorious Harvey Weinstein", who was the producer, and raging against her agents at Creative Artists Agency (CAA). Weinstein's representative has denied his involvement, insisting he did not give instructions to orchestrate a cover-up.

When reached over the weekend by CNN, a spokesman for Weinstein sent photos of him and Thurman together to "demonstrate the strong relationship Mr. Weinstein and Ms. Thurman had had over the years". "He did all kinds of unpleasant things", Thurman told The Times about one particular incident with Weinstein. However, her claims about being physically assaulted are untrue.

In an interview published by The New York Times on Saturday, Uma Thurman claimed that Tarantino bullied her into driving an unsafe convertible during the filming of 2003's Kill Bill.

In a New York Times report published over the weekend, Uma Thurman revealed that she received permanent injuries after crashing a auto she didn't feel comfortable driving while filming Kill Bill.

The Vice Principals actress tweeted that she showed up clad in "short shorts" as requested because she wanted to nab the job. Full on, I'm gonna cut off your air, for just a little bit of time. But I was scared. I said, I think I need to do it. "It was a sand road and it was not a straight road".

Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman attend the Closing Ceremony and "A Fistful of Dollars" screening during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France, May 24, 2014.

In the footage she can be seen struggling to control the convertible Karmann Ghia before crashing into a palm tree and hitting her head on the passenger seat.

CNN has reached out to studio representatives for comment.

Howard Stern asked Tarantino why Hollywood still embraced Polanski, "this mad man, this director who raped a 13-year-old".

Tarantino defended his tactics in an interview with Deadline.

Tarantino says he drove the section of road himself and assured Thurman she'd manage the straight shot fine.

The change of direction "was the beginning of where the crash happened", he said. I didn't mean to do it.

"While we were getting ready to do Kill Bill, Uma tells me that he had done the same thing to her".

One could assume that Tarantino likely still possessed some esteem for Polanski as a director, but the real shock is in his reaction to the crimes Polanski has admitted he perpetrated.

Quivers: Giving her booze and pills... "I am proud of him for doing the right thing and for his courage".

Later in the interview, Tarantino described his behavior in Thurman's trailer while trying convince her to put aside her reservations and do the driving scene. "They lied, destroyed evidence, and continue to lie about the permanent harm they caused and then chose to suppress", the actress wrote. I'll only do it twice, at the most, three times.

In response, Tarantino said, "I don't consider him a rapist".
