Uma Thurman releases horrifying footage of Kill Bill car crash

  • 06/02/2018

Actress Uma Thurman has revealed shocking never-before-seen footage of a car crash on the set of the 2003 film Kill Bill.

Thurman claims Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein tried to bury the footage, which shows her skidding out of control and violently hitting her head on impact.

The crash left her with permanent damage to her eyes and neck.

In a post to Instagram, she calls the circumstances of the crash "negligent to the point of criminality", but adds she does not blame director Quentin Tarantino.

"Quentin Tarantino, was deeply regretful and remains remorseful about this sorry event," she says.

"[He] gave me the footage years later so I could expose it and let it see the light of day, regardless of it most likely being an event for which justice will never be possible.

"He also did so with full knowledge it could cause him personal harm, and I am proud of him for doing the right thing and for his courage."

The 47-year-old goes on to say the "cover up" of the crash is "unforgivable".

In an extended interview with the New York Times, Thurman goes on to claim Weinstein "attacked" her following the filming of Pulp Fiction.

"He pushed me down," she says, after alleging he's made less forward advances on her in the past, which she turned down.

"He tried to shove himself on me. He tried to expose himself. He did all kinds of unpleasant things.

"But he didn't actually put his back into it and force me. You're like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard."

Weinstein has responded saying he's "puzzled" by the claims.

He says he apologised after misreading a "flirtatious exchange" in Paris which led to him propositioning the actress, adding the pair went on to become good friends.

A spokesman also told media a "number of images... demonstrate the strong relationship the pair have shared over the years".

"We wish the New York Times would have published them."
