Quentin Tarantino may be trying to act like a pitiful choirboy in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein allegations, but he seems to be more deceitful in the light of an old interview in which he claimed that Roman Polanski’s 13-year-old victim of rape “would have.”

Tarantino defended Polanski during a 2003 Howard Stern interview — which, again, the Jezebel, saying: “He had no rape of a 13-year-old … he had sex with a minor. That is not rape.”

When reminded by Stern sidekick Robin Quivers that Polanski’s victim was multiplied with drugs and alcohol, Tarantino said: “No, that was not the case at all. She wanted to have it [sex] and dated the guy … Look, she was down.”

Tarantino, who, with regret, He said, “I knew enough to do more than I did,’ was accused by Uma Thurman to force her to a collision with the car stunt in “Kill Bill” that left her injured, plus he spat in her face and strangled her with a chain, because he had no confidence in a trained actor to do it.

Tarantino called the Uma crash “one of the biggest regrets of my life.” It was met with horror in Hollywood.

Jessica Chastain tweeted, “I keep imagining Tarantino spitting in Uma’s face, and strangle her with a chain…..How many images of women in the media, we celebrate that showcase abuse? When did this become normalized ‘entertainment’?…. How can an actor feel safe if your driver is strangling you?”
