Actress Uma Thurman releases footage of her car accident on Kill Bill (watch)


Actress Uma Thurman published the film footage of the car crash she was involved in while filming the 2003 movie “Kill Bill.”

The crash caused a riff between her and director Quentin Tarantino.

While Thurman says Tarantino holds remorse and guilty, the two have made amends.   In her post she calls out three people she still holds responsible, including now-disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Fox News reports that Thurman first discussed the car crash in a revealing New York Times article in which she detailed her experience with Weinstein and made claims he sexually assaulted her.

In the article, she revealed that the crash, which can be seen below, was the result of utter negligence on the set and a disregard for her safety. She even detailed how Tarantino convinced her to do the stunt despite her misgivings.

Thurman said her lawyer sent Weinstein’s company, Miramax, a letter summarizing the event and reserving the right to sue. The company offered to show her the footage on the condition she signed a document releasing them of any consequences for any future pain and suffering.

She refused.

i post this clip to memorialize it’s full exposure in the nyt by Maureen Dowd. the circumstances of this event were negligent to the point of criminality. i do not believe though with malicious intent. Quentin Tarantino, was deeply regretful and remains remorseful about this sorry event, and gave me the footage years later so i could expose it and let it see the light of day, regardless of it most likely being an event for which justice will never be possible. he also did so with full knowledge it could cause him personal harm, and i am proud of him for doing the right thing and for his courage. THE COVER UP after the fact is UNFORGIVABLE. for this i hold Lawrence Bender, E. Bennett Walsh, and the notorious Harvey Weinstein solely responsible. they lied, destroyed evidence, and continue to lie about the permanent harm they caused and then chose to suppress. the cover up did have malicious intent, and shame on these three for all eternity. CAA never sent anyone to Mexico. i hope they look after other clients more respectfully if they in fact want to do the job for which they take money with any decency.
