Responding to the New York Times article, he added: "Uma was in turmoil about the uprising against me this whole weekend. she never meant this to roll over to me". As a outcome of the ensuing accident, Thurman suffered permanent damage to her knees and neck.

Thurman said the crash happened after director Quentin Tarantino told her she had to hit 40 miles per hour in a vehicle she described as a "deathbox" with a seat that "wasn't screwed down properly" while driving over a sandy road.

"THE COVER UP after the fact is UNFORGIVABLE", she said.

Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Miramax, Quentin Tarantino, Harvey Weinstein, Lawrence Bender and E. Bennet Walsh asking for comment.

"They lied, destroyed evidence, and continue to lie about the permanent harm they caused and then chose to suppress", she said. In a Monday post, she shared the crash footage and wrote that Tarantino "was deeply regretful and remains remorseful about this sorry event". "She wanted to have it and dated the guy and.He was down with the party, she was down with the party", he said.

The "circumstances of this event were negligent to the point of criminality", Thurman writes.

On the day the article was published, United Kingdom police announced they were investigating two new allegations of sexual assault against the 65-year-old.

The footage had been provided to Thurman by Tarantino 15 years after the movie was shot.

A spokesperson for Weinstein denied Thurman's accusations of a cover-up.

Tarantino noted that he and Thurman's relationship was not affected by the article, and that the actress "was in turmoil" about the backlash it caused.

Weinstein's representative also sent photos that the spokesperson said "demonstrate the strong relationship Mr. Weinstein and Ms. Thurman had had over the years".

Thurman, for her part, exonerated Tarantino of guilt for the incident in an Instagram post last night, writing that the director had done the "right thing" in handing over the footage knowing full well it would make him look bad, and that she instead held Weinstein and the other producers responsible for the coverup. "However, her claims about being physically assaulted are untrue".

Tarantino has not addressed his 2003 statements, but it's safe to say he's going to have a hard time talking his way out of this one.

Weinstein has been accused by dozens of women of sexual misconduct, including rape since this past October. They're the reason the #MeToo movement exists.

It's had ripple effects across multiple industries, taking down powerful men in the media and business worlds.

She said the producer assaulted her in a London hotel room after the release of Pulp Fiction in 1994.

"I told her the road was a straight line".

Quentin Tarantino has responded to Uma Thurman's accusation that he nearly killed her on the set of Kill Bill, calling the incident the "biggest regret of my life".

Quentin said that he and Uma had talked about everything for an extended period of time in order to decide how she was going to do the stunt. She called the working conditions surrounding the incident "dehumanization to the point of death". And she crashed. At first, no one really knew what happened. Margot Robbie (I, Tonya and Suicide Squad) has been cast as Sharon Tate, the most famous of the Manson murder victims. "And he was very angry at that, I guess understandably, because he didn't feel he had tried to kill me". By her account, Tarantino was furious with her request and ultimately persuaded her to do the stunt.

"And it spins her like a top", Tarantino said.
