In an interview in the New York Times over the weekend, Thurman alleged that Harvey Weinstein attacked her multiple times and that while working on Kill Bill (which was financially backed by Weinstein's production company Miramax) director Quentin Tarantino convinced her to film a scene in a moving vehicle without a stunt driver.

Thurman's account of the auto crash overshadowed her accusations of sexual misconduct by Harvey Weinstein, who produced Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill. She also discussed how footage of the event was kept from her, and how she alleges the incident was covered up by Harvey Weinstein and other film executives. "The cover-up did have malicious intent, and shame on these three for all eternity". "He treated me with utter respect and never abused his power or forced me to do anything I wasn't comfortable with".

Tarantino, in published Monday, admitted he pressured Thurman to do the scene. We have been dealing with it for 22 years. "Maybe we should have, but we didn't".

"Harvey has tremendous affection for Uma Thurman nevertheless he denies these allegations", the spokesperson said in a statement to HuffPost.

Speaking to Parade about her experience in 2009, Kruger said: "I get strangled, which was especially weird because you feel it when someone is choking you, so it was an interesting day at the office. That was one of my most horrendous mistakes, that I didn't take the time to run the road, one more time, just to see what I would see".

"He was wrong. I bet he knows it", said Geimer. I won't give away the name of the actor who kills me, but Quentin said, 'He's not going to do it right, it'll either be too much or too little. "It's a straight piece of road, '" Thurman told Dowd, adding that the director told her to "'Hit 40 miles per hour or your hair won't blow the right way and I'll make you do it again.' But that was a deathbox that I was in. "This is a straight shot... no hidden S-curves".

There was an unseen "little S-curve" that threw the auto out of control, he said.

"And it spins her like a top", Tarantino said. "It was heartbreaking." He called it "the biggest regret of my life".

In footage posted by the Times, the actress is seen speeding down an unpaved road before crashing into a tree.

"Uma and I had talked about it, for a long period of time, deciding how she was going to do it".

Although Tarantino said he has been criticized on social media and in the press since the reveal, in regard to putting her story together for the Times, "I was absolutely being her accomplice, talking through it with her, working my own memory, figuring out the timeline".

Instead, the "Pulp Fiction" actress said she is proud of the director for handing over footage of the crash, which she says she tried unsuccessfully for years to obtain. According to him, Thurman believes the auto may have been destroyed "at Harvey Weinstein's insistence, and at Bennett Walsh and Lawrence Bender's execution".
