Thurman released a video of the Kill Bill incident, showing her driving a stunt auto and ultimately crashing, saying that she was reluctant to drive the vehicle in the first place.

Thurman posted the video on Instagram, saying in the caption that Tarantino gave her the footage so she could expose it.

Quentin Tarantino has come under fire for his treatment of friend, and actress, Uma Thurman. "They lied, destroyed evidence, and continue to lie about the permanent harm they caused and then chose to suppress", the actress wrote. "He treated me with utter respect and never abused his power or forced me to do anything I wasn't comfortable with".

"None of us ever considered it a stunt", the 54-year-old director said. Maybe we should have, but we didn't.

Recalling the moment of the crash, he said: "Watching her fight for the wheel ...remembering me hammering about how it was safe and she could do it". An irritated Tarantino convinced her to do it, she said, and she crashed into a tree, suffering what she said was permanent neck damage, a concussion and damage to her knees. "It needed to be that mix of saliva and the brown juice", Tarantino told Deadline Hollywood of the scene in which he spat tobacco-filled saliva all over her face. "And it wasn't. I was wrong", he said.

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".

Away from Porzingis' injury, the game will also be overshadowed due to a moment of individual brilliance from Antetokounmpo. But he wanted the challenge and has been up for it, averaging 22.7 points and a league-leading 2.4 blocked shots per game.

Tarantino said he had tested the course, a one-lane strip of road in Mexico, before encouraging Thurman to perform the stunt, but then he made a decision to change the direction in which she would drive. "I know exactly what I need and I think I should just do it". "That was one of my most horrendous mistakes, that I didn't take the time to run the road, one more time". She said she wanted a stunt driver to do the shot. "It was a sand road and it was not a straight road".

"Emphasising that it was a straight road, a straight road ... the fact that she believed me, and I literally watched this little S curve pop up".

Tarantino is said to be courting Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio for his new movie. He said the vehicle crash was the "biggest regret" of his life, but defended his actions stepping in to spit on and choke her. 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.

"I felt this searing pain and thought, 'Oh my God, I'm never going to walk again, '" Thurman told the Times.

After the story about Thurman, reports began to resurface about Tarantino stepping in for actor Christoph Waltz to choke Diane Kruger for a scene in Inglourious Basterds.

In the op-ed, Thurman details interactions with Weinstein and unwanted advances that he put her through in, of course, a hotel room. Those films established disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein, accused of sexual harassment and assault, as a Hollywood mogul.
