Thurman Finally Talks About Her Injuries In a Car Crash on the Set of the 2003 Film “Kill Bill”

Uma Thurman shared in an interview published in the New York Times in February 2018 about getting injured in a car crash on the set of the 2003 film “Kill Bill.” The film was directed by Quentin Tarantino and produced by Harvey Weinstein.  According to Thurman, Tarantino pressured her into driving in a car scene, despite the fact that she wanted a stunt person to do it. He was upset Thurman had wasted a lot of time because she was scared to do the scene. Tarantino promised the car would be fine and driven on a straight road with no threat of danger. Steps to Take After an Accident with a Commercial Vehicle

Despite this promise, Thurman was told to drive the car in the opposite direction for the scene on an S-curve path that led to the accident. As a result, Thurman suffered neck and knee injuries that still bother her today. Tarantino admits he talked her into getting in the car and assuring the road was safe, when it was not.

Thurman was denied access to the footage of the crash by Miramax studios unless she signed an agreement “releasing them of any consequences of her future pain and suffering. “ [ need to add in end quote ].She refused to do so. Thurman obtained the footage more than 15 years later.
