Kill Bill producer expresses 'regret' over Uma Thurman crash

Quentin Tarantino was accused of endangering life

"And then it takes this little S-curve, and she's not prepared for it".

Uma Thurman clarified her recent comments about Quentin Tarantino while describing a auto crash on the set of Kill Bill that left her with injuries - some permanent - during a recent interview with The New York Times.

Thurman first divulged details of the crash in a New York Times piece on Saturday. Much of the article centers on Thurman's allegations that she had been sexually assaulted by movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Thurman also said she suffered a auto crash during the shooting of Kill Bill, on which Weinstein was an executive producer, and footage from the crash accompanied the story. "I stand with you", she said. In the said story, Thurman admitted getting into a fight with Tarantino after the crash, and this fight lasted for years.

Defending his decision to make Uma Thurman drive the auto, Quentin Tarantino said he thought it was a straight road.

She shared the full footage of the accident on her Instagram, which shows her ploughing into a tree.

She added: "For the record however, I would like to say that my work experience with Quentin Tarantino was pure joy".

Thurman also laid the blame for the accident on producer Bender, executive producer E. Bennett Walsh and executive producer Harvey Weinstein.

The crash crushed her knees and left her with a concussion.

In an interview with Deadline, Tarantino addressed the accident.

Tarantino said that after driving down the road in the convertible himself, he was confident Thurman would be able to do the same without any issues.

Diane Kruger has spoken out to deny claims that Quentin Tarantino "abused his power" while directing Inglorious Basterds.

Instead, believing that the road wasn't a problem, he convinced Thurman to drive around 30-45 miles per hour. I didn't go barging into Uma's trailer, screaming at her to get into the vehicle. Her concerns were ignored and she was told to shoot the scene anyway. "It was a sand road and it was not a straight road". Because she trusted me... "And it wasn't. I was wrong". "And it wasn't. The vehicle might even have been dubious too, even if I didn't know that then". Explaining the incident, Tarantino said: "Naturally, I did it. And she believed me".

"She wanted to have it and dated the guy", Tarantino says in the audio interview. "It was heartbreaking." He called it "the biggest regret of my life".

He said he drove down the road to check it was OK and thought, "this is going to be okay".

He agreed that the incident tore a hole in his relationship with Thurman, and that "a trust was broken". "I can act all strangle-ey, but if you want my face to get red and the tears to come to my eye, then you kind of need to choke me". She asked, could I get her the footage?
