Old Audio of Tarantino Defending Polanski with 13-Year-Old Girl Resurfaces

Old Audio of Tarantino Defending Polanski with 13-Year-Old Girl Resurfaces

"But I'm sure I wasn't in a rage and I wasn't livid", he added.

In her NYT piece, Thurman described the anger she felt toward Tarantino after learning the extent of her injuries.

"I told her it would be OK". The director gives a detailed recollection of what happened that day before the crash, revealing that "I didn't go barging into Uma's trailer, screaming at her to get into the vehicle. I knew she was a shaky driver, but she had a license". And it wasn't. I was wrong. She also calls out agency CAA, for not sending anyone to the set to make sure everything was on the up-and-up. That was an issue of me asking the actress, can we do this to get a realistic effect. "And she believed me".

In short, Tarantino said in a recently unearthed 2003 radio interview with Howard Stern that not only was Polanski not at fault, but that the 13-year-old girl "wanted to have it", among other things.

In the clip, Tarantino says, "He didn't rape a 13-year-old".

As part of a plea bargain, Polanski pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor - an offence that was previously known as statutory rape. "To me, when you use the word rape, you're talking about violent, throwing them down - it's like one of the most violent crimes in the world. Throwing the word "rape" around is like throwing the word 'racist" around. "It doesn't apply to everything that people use it for". So the idea is, I'm doing it, I'm taking responsibility.

But it turns out that Tarantino located it and provided it to her to present with the Times story, according to both Thurman and Tarantino. He claims he made doing Kill Bill with Miramax conditional on Weinstein apologising to Thurman. For certain scenes in "Kill Bill", Tarantino chose to perform stunts himself with Thurman-including actually choking her and spitting on her-because he "didn't trust" anyone else. "My confrontation was saying, you have to go to Uma". When he tried to wriggle out of it, and how things actually happened, I never bought his story. "I said, Oh, Uma, it's just fine", he said". Footage of the eventual crash is included in the New York Times article. "It wasn't like we didn't talk", the "Hateful Eight" director said, "but a trust was broken". However, in an Instagram post on Monday, she explains that she blames Lawrence Bender, E. Bennett Walsh and Harvey Weinstein for the crash and defended Tarantino. The actress spoke to the New York Times and on her Instagram account.

"There was an element of closure", he said.

Harvey Weinstein denies the allegations of sexual misconduct.

"I am guilty, for putting her in that vehicle, but not the way that people are saying I am guilty of it... So she could see it and help her with her memory of the incident".

Tarantino has been at the center of controversy lately after allegations surfaced claiming that he carelessly put Uma Thurman's life in danger on the set of Kill Bill. He detailed an incident during the filming of Inglourious Basterds in which he asked actor Diana Kruger whether he could personally strangle her in order to get the right shot.

"I was assuming that when we did it, we would have maybe a pole behind Uma that the chain would be wrapped around so it wouldn't be seen by the camera, at least for the wide shot", the director told Deadline.
