Quentin Tarantino Biting Fergie Explained By The Singer: 'We Were Just Kind Of Having Banter'
A behind-the-scene footage of a film has been unearthed, showing Fergie being bitten by Quentin Tarantino. However, the singer explains they were just having fun.
The resurfaced footage had become a media frenzy and in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Fergie clarified what really went down at the set.
She initially expressed support for those coming out against their abusers, although she added that her story was not the same with the waves of victims. Fergie explained that the clips circulating had been clearly misunderstood and taken out of context.
"We were just kind of having banter. We were having a little bit of fun," she explained.
The clip showed the "Glamorous" singer being interviewed for the film Planet Terror. This movie was part of Grindhouse, a double feature film. Tarantino directed Death Proof, while Robert Rodriguez for the Fergie-starrer.
In the video, Fergie could be seen being chased by zombies, one of which was Tarantino. She narrated that the acclaimed-director had been playing his part too well that he started making noises.
The Blackeyed Peas member went on to say that they kept redoing the scene, attributing it to Tarantino's portrayal of the zombie. Fergie added that he kept pointing fingers to other zombie actors for the unnecessary sound.
She then disclosed that Tarantino had actually bitten her during the scene, which saw Fergie being pinned to the ground. More so, she revealed that the bite was so hard, it had left a mark on her arm.
Fergie could then be heard saying, "get off me," while laughing. In another video, the 42-year-old "Big Girls Don't Cry" singer was showing her bruise from the bite, and jokingly announced that she would get even with Tarantino, at least until the end of production.
Uma Thurman's Account
The dredging of the videos followed just days after Uma Thurman's story of car crash on the set of Kill Bill was published. The Pulp Fiction actress alleged Tarantino of forcing her to do the scene that had been responsible for multiple injuries.
Along with this op-ed, Thurman released the footage which showed her driving a vehicle that eventually hit a palm tree. As a result, the actress suffered a concussion and a knee injury.
However, in a recent Instagram post, Thurman held Harvey Weinstein, Lawrence Bender, and E. Bennett Walsh responsible for allegedly doing everything to make sure the footage never reached the public. She also lauded Tarantino for giving her the clip after 15 years, even as it could ruin his reputation.
