Quentin Tarantino could not feel guiltier about the Kill Bill stunt that practically eliminated Uma Thurman
As we formerly reported, in her honest New York Times interview, the 47- year-old starlet declared that the popular director pressed her into doing a driving stunt, regardless of having actually vocalized her qualms with the series. Unfortunately, while recording, the automobile crashed and triggered major, lasting physical injury to Uma.

Although the blonde A-lister has actually currently safeguarded Tarantino, the filmmaker has actually given that resolved the debate with Deadline, calling it the “biggest regret of [his] life.” He shared:
“I am guilty, for putting her in that car, but not the way that people are saying I am guilty of it… It’s the biggest regret of my life, getting her to do that stunt.”
Tarantino went on to state that he offered Uma the video footage of the crash so that she might get “closure” from the mishap and intended to “help her with her memory of the incident.” However, the Oscar winner safeguarded that he never ever thought about Uma driving the lorry a stunt, which is why he “rolled [his] eyes and was irritated” with Thurman’s worry.
The 54- year-old communicated:
“I’m sure when it was brought up to me, that I rolled my eyes and was irritated. But I’m sure I wasn’t in a rage and I wasn’t livid. I didn’t go barging into Uma’s trailer, screaming at her to get into the car… Anyone who knows Uma knows that going into her trailer, and screaming at her to do something is not the way to get her to do something. That’s a bad tactic and I’d been shooting the movie with her for an entire year by this time. I would never react to her this way.”
To even more show that he took safety measures prior to the practically deadly stunt, Quentin exposed he drove down the same roadway Uma crashed on. Tarantino DID yield that he didn’t take the very same path as Thurman, which is how he missed out on the harmful S-curve that triggered the crash.
” As a director, you find out things and often you discover them through horrendous errors. That was among my most horrendous errors, that I didn’t put in the time to run the roadway, one more time, simply to see exactly what I would see.
She appeared, in an excellent state of mind. We did the shot. And she crashed. Initially, nobody truly understood exactly what occurred. After the crash, when Uma went to the health center, I was feeling in overall distress at exactly what had actually occurred.”
Per Tarantino, this mishap completely impacted his relationship with Uma. They were in a rift for a couple of years:
“It wasn’t like we didn’t talk. But a trust was broken. A trust broken over a year of shooting, of us doing really gnarly stuff. I wanted her to do as much as possible and we were trying to take care of her and we pulled it off. And then the last four days, in what we thought would be a simple driving shot, almost kills her.”
Well, it most likely didn’t assist that the event was presumably concealed too. Regardless, we’re grateful Quentin is taking ownership for the part he played in this debate.
