"Far from me being mad, livid and angry, I was all...smiley".
"I told her it would be OK".
"Harvey assaulted me but that didn't kill me", she says. "And it wasn't. I was wrong", he said. Thurman told Dowd she'd severely injured her neck and knees and suffered a concussion due to the crash. I didn't think for a moment she was just going to sit on it. "And she believed me".
While Tarantino may have been cleared by Thurman and spoken his part on the Kill Bill and Weinstein controversies, a 2003 interview with Howard Stern in which he defends Roman Polanski resurfaced last night, and it's a less-than-good look for the director.
Polanski pleaded guilty to statutory rape in 1978 when 13-year-old Samantha Geimer accused him of drugging her and sexually assaulting her at a party - before another woman came forward in August, accusing him of "sexually victimising" her when she was 16 in 1973. It was statutory rape ... he had sex with a minor. That's not rape. 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.
Tarantino added: "Throwing the word "rape" around is like throwing the word "racist" around". What she said about Kill Bill, however, has been getting even more attention.
Producer Miramax told her at the time that she could see the footage of the crash if she gave up her right to sue, Thurman said. "I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard". Tarantino says the men lawyered up to keep their names largely out of Dowd's piece. Well, my confrontation was saying, you have to go to Uma. "We did our two times, and then like Uma with the spitting thing, Diane said, OK, if you need to do it once more, you can".

Knowing Eddie Jones , he will likely keep us guessing but we should know more later in the week when the squad is updated. The basis of the game - the scrum and the lineout - were good for us today.
In an Instagram post earlier on Monday, Thurman said Tarantino did the "best thing" by assuming liability and sharing the recording.
Weinstein was a producing partner on a number of critically and commercially successful Tarantino films, including Django Unchained and his breakout 1994 hit Pulp Fiction, which also starred Thurman. "There was an element of closure".
Harvey Weinstein denies the allegations of sexual misconduct. "She even said on film in an interview, 'It was a odd request, but by that point I trusted Quentin so much that, sure, '" he recounted. "So she could see it and help her with her memory of the incident".
Quentin Tarantino drew feedback throughout the end of the week following a New York Times article in which Kill Bill star Uma Thurman shared an account of an auto collision and ensuing wounds she endured while taping the 2003 activity movie.
"The Inglourious Basterds "choking scene" that Kruger is referring to is one in which her character, Bridget von Hammersmark, was strangled to death by Christoph Waltz's character, Col. Hans Landa". "I can imagine maybe rolling my eyes and thinking, we spent all this money taking this stick shift Karmann Ghia and changing the transmission, just for this shot".
"Look, she was down with it".
