In the interview aired, Thurman also her heart about the relationship with director Quentin Tarantino. Tarantino and Thurman worked together for Pulp Fiction and the Kill Bill epic, both of which were created for Miramar, the production company of Weinstein.

Two episodes sit Thurman high. A complaint was that Tarantino the actor Michael Madsen replaced when its in the face heard to spit, and that he was in a wurgscene itself the chain around her neck tensed.

But the more serious accusation involved a car accident that permanent damage to the neck and the knees of Thurman dealt. The behavior of Tarantino had her life in danger, argued them.

‘Trust broken’

According to Thurman had a head equipment manager its pointed out that the bijgespijkerde car in a bad state. They tried the scene, with her hair in the wind was flapping, while they are on a country road in Mexico rushed to a stuntvrouw to transfer.

The kettingwurgscene and spitting defends Tarantino.

“Of course I did that. Who had the else to do? I am the director, I can fluim of design’. He feared that Madsen is too reluctant, or in many attempts would be needed before he is sufficiently aggressive, could spew.

Shortly after the publication of the interview with the Times had Thurman via Instagram Tarantino praised because he is her on the recording of the accident had helped. And although the circumstances around the accident ‘was negligent in the criminal was the judge they do not believe that the intentions of Tarantino malicious. For the cover-up of eight she ‘Lawrence Bender, E. Bennett Walsh, and the infamous Harvey Weinstein will only be liable’.
