Uma Thurman hasn’t ruled out working with Quentin Tarantino again, despite the pair falling out over a dangerous stunt.
The 48-year-old actress alleged the director forced her to drive a car that ended in a terrifying crash on the set of Kill Bill: Volume 1 in 2003. She was subsequently injured, and the pair fought for years about the incident.
Tarantino later provided Thurman with video footage of the crash in an effort to bring her closure, but their relationship was never the same again.
However, Thurman hopes to once again collaborate with the Oscar-winning director one day.
“I understand him and if he wrote a great part and we were both in the right place about it, that would be something else,” she told Entertainment Tonight.
“We’ve had our fights over the years. When you know someone for as long as I’ve known him, 25 years of creative collaboration… yes, did we have some tragedies take place? Sure. But you can’t reduce that type of history and legacy. It would have been reduced to my car accident if I died,” she admitted.
Thurman also revealed she has forgiven Tarantino, despite initially being furious at him for putting her in such a dangerous situation.
“Yes, do I have a chronically bad neck? Yeah. Was I mad about how it was handled and how I was treated? Yes. But does that mean I don’t care about someone that I have 25 years of history with? No! My capacity to forgive exists and things happen. The accident itself was wrong, but… I tried to explain that it was the environment around it that wounded me the most,” she explained.
Tarantino previously called the crash the “biggest regret of my life.”
“As a director, you learn things and sometimes you learn through horrendous mistakes,” he told Deadline. “That was one of my most horrendous mistakes.”
