Quentin Tarantino drew criticism over the weekend following a New York Times article in which Kill Bill star Uma Thurman shared a story of a car crash and subsequent injuries she suffered while filming the 2003 action movie. Thurman claims that the accident resulted in a concussion and damaged knees.
The footage of the crash, which Tarantino provided to Thurman, shows the actress crashing into a palm tree. In a recent interview with Deadline, Tarantino said he knew the Times story was coming and was contacted by both Thurman and Maureen Dowd, the author of the Times piece.
"I knew that the piece was happening. Uma and I had talked about it, for a long period of time, deciding how she was going to do it. She wanted clarity on what happened in that car crash, after all these years," Tarantino said.
