Hollywood was swift to skewer Academy Award-winner Quentin Tarantino following Uma Thurman’s scathing interview with The New York Times that published Saturday.
In addition to speaking out about disgraced filmmaker Harvey Weinstein and his alleged unwanted advances, Thurman recounted how her director for Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill spit in her face, choked her with a chain and persuaded her to operate a car she deemed in the interview “a deathbox,” which resulted in a crash.
Tarantino copped to the spitting and choking and called the crash “one of the biggest regrets of my life” in a Q&A with Deadline published Monday.
Actress Busy Philipps slammed Tarantino in a series of NSFW tweets Monday evening.
“Like (expletive) spiting on an actresses face and choking her wasn’t enough,” she wrote in the post. “I’m embarrassed that I ever auditioned for him.”
The Vice Principals actress tweeted that she showed up clad in “short shorts” as requested because she wanted to nab the job. “This business (expletive) and enables predators and (expletive) ENOUGH,” she said.
Over the weekend, Jessica Chastain reacted to Thurman’s interview on Twitter, saying she has “great respect” for the actress.
“I keep imagining Tarantino spitting in Uma’s face and strangling her with a chain for KILL BILL,” Chastain tweeted Saturday. “How many images of women in media do we celebrate that showcase abuse? When did this become normalized ‘entertainment’?”
“Directors inserting themselves into a scene depicting abuse is crossing a boundary,” she added. “How can an actor feel safe when your director is strangling you?”
In contrast, Diane Kruger who acted in Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds defended him via Instagram Tuesday.
“In light of the recent allegations made by Uma Thurman against Harvey Weinstein and her terrifying work experience on Kill Bill, my name has been mentioned in numerous articles in regards to the choking scene in Inglourious Basterds,” Kruger said. “This is an important moment in time and my heart goes out to Uma and anyone who has ever been the victim of sexual assault and abuse. I stand with you.
“For the record however, I would like to say that my work experience with Quentin Tarantino was pure joy,” she said. “He treated me with utter respect and never abused his power or forced me to do anything I wasn’t comfortable with.”
