The aftermath of Uma Thurman’s allegations against Harvey Weinstein continues to take twisty turns for Quentin Tarantino. The Internet has gone abuzz with a 14-year-old Howard Stern interview where the filmmaker defends Roman Polanski. Separately, Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds actress Diane Kruger lent her own perspective on Instagram to the lengthy story that Tarantino told on Deadline, about filming the scene when her character was strangled in the movie.
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”. 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. He treated me with utter respect and never abused his power or forced me to do anything I wasn’t comfortable with. With love, D xoxo
