The actress claims the filmmaker forced her to drive a “deathbox” automobile on a sand road for a sequence in the 2003 film Kill Bill despite her protests.

She eventually agreed, but the automobile crashed, leaving her in critical condition in the hospital.

Uma was afraid she wouldn’t be able to walk again after injuring both her legs and her brain.

She stated to the New York Times Tarantino asserted that the vehicle was “fine,” adding: “It’s a straight piece of road. Hit 40 miles per hour or your hair won’t blow the right way and I’ll make you do it again.”

She continued: “But that was a deathbox that I was in. The seat wasn’t screwed down properly. It was a sand road and it was not a straight road.”

Uma recalled the accident, saying: “The steering wheel was at my belly and my legs were jammed under me. I felt this searing pain and thought, ‘Oh my God, I’m never going to walk again.’

“When I came back from the hospital in a neck brace with my knees damaged and a large massive egg on my head and a concussion, I wanted to see the car and I was very upset.”

The accident, she said, was “one of the worst things that had ever happened to me.”

“Quentin and I had an enormous fight, and I accused him of trying to kill me,” she added. “And he was very angry at that, I guess understandably because he didn’t feel he had tried to kill me.”

She was also apparently upset with disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein, whom she had accused of attempting to sexually assault her and of attempting to cover up the crash.

Tarantino said: “She feels it’s very possible the car was destroyed, at Weinstein’s insistence.”

She was able to obtain footage of the crash years later, thanks to Tarantino’s assistance, and she released it on Instagram.

Tarantino called the crash his “biggest regret” in life.

He stated that he knew Uma was “apprehensive about doing the driving shot,” so he took the car for a spin first.

He explained: “When I was all finished [driving], I was very happy, thinking, she can totally do this, it won’t be a problem. I go to Uma’s trailer…I said, ‘Oh, Uma, it’s just fine.

“You can totally do this. It’s just a straight line, that’s all it is. You get in the car at [point] number one, and drive to number two and you’re all good.’ Uma’s response was, ‘Okay’.

“Because she believed me. Because she trusted me. I told her it would be okay. I told her the road was a straight line.

“I told her it would be safe. And it wasn’t. I was wrong. I didn’t force her into the car. She got into it because she trusted me. And she believed me.'”

Uma has appeared in three Tarantino films: Pulp Fiction and both Kill Bill films.
