Uma Thurman Uploads 'Kill Bill' Crash Video, Says Weinstein And Others Covered It Up
Uma Thurman takes it to Instagram to show the video of the crash from 15 years ago. She holds accountable film magnate Harvey Weinstein and two others.
It can be remembered that the New York Times recently published a detailed article about Thurman's accounts during the time she was filming the action-packed 2003 film Kill Bill. Along with this was the footage of the crash.
Now, to let her followers know what really transpired on the day she met the accident, Thurman uploaded a shorter clip of the horrendous scene on her social media account. In the video, the Pulp Fiction star can be seen driving before losing control of the car and eventually hitting a tree.
After which, Thurman can be noticed to be holding her neck, before a staff came to check on her.
Thurman revealed that prior to this accident, she asked for a stunt double to do the scene after learning of hearsays that the car to be used was not in good condition. But Kill Bill director Quentin Tarantino allegedly insisted on her to do it.
Thurman also revealed that she got a concussion and a knee injury as a result of the accident.
"When I came back from the hospital in a neck brace with my knees damaged and a large massive egg on my head and a concussion, I wanted to see the car and I was very upset," she narrated.
In her Instagram post, she highlighted the negligence of some people behind the cameras, but said that Tarantino had no "malicious intent." Thurman went on to narrate that the acclaimed director had finally given her the footage after 15 years. The 47-year-old actress also lauded Tarantino for handing her the video despite the fact that it could ruin the filmmaker's reputation.
However, the case was not the same for the producers of the film. Thurman targeted one of the most controversial man today, Weinstein, along with Lawrence Bender and E. Bennett Walsh, for allegedly doing everything it took to making the video away from the public's eye.
Thurman, who starred as The Bride in Kill Bill, described the producers' action as "unforgivable." She slammed Weinstein and the others for lying and covering up the accident on the set.
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.
