Quentin Tarantino defended Roman Polanski for having sex with girl, 13

"The steering wheel was at my belly and my legs were jammed under me", says Uma Thurman.

"How can you defend-see I don't understand this", Stern began.

When Stern and co-host Robin Quivers argued with Tarantino about the meaning of consent and statutory rape, he claimed: "She wanted to have it and dated the guy".

The 41-year-old actress continued, "for the record however, I would like to say that my work experience with Quentin Tarantino was pure joy". The 84-year-old "Carnage" director pleaded guilty to unlawful sex with a minor, but fled the country in 1978 before sentencing.

Despite the charges against him, Polanski was awarded the Oscar for Best Director for his 2002 film "The Pianist".

In the shocking interview, Tarantino claims that statutory rape is not rape, and that the teenage girl Polanski had sex with was "down with it". "To me, when you use the word 'rape, ' you're talking about violent, throwing them down". You can't throw the word rape around. "It doesn't apply to everything people use it for", he told Howard Stern in 2003.

"You have sex with a 13-year-old girl and you're a grown man, you know that that's wrong because she hasn't..." "She was down to party with Roman".

This season, above any other in his career, Gerard Pique has had to deal with the brunt of opposition supporter terrace ire. After the interval, Gerard Moreno scored a shock opener before Gerard Pique restored parity from Lionel Messi's assist.

Uma Thurman shared footage of the "Kill Bill" crash that almost cost her life as she expressed pride in director Quentin Tarantino and doubled down on her condemnation of Harvey Weinstein.

Thurman, who had a strong working relationship with Tarantino up until that incident, noted that while she doesn't feel there was malicious intent behind it, she found the situation to be "quite negligent to the point of criminality". 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 auto and I was very upset.

Thurman shared the video again on her Instagram post and in a lengthy caption said, "Tarantino was deeply regretful and remains remorseful about this sorry event, and 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". "They lied, destroyed evidence, and continue to lie about the permanent harm they caused and then chose to suppress".

The actor said Tarantino handed over the footage "with full knowledge it could cause him personal harm, and I am proud of him for doing the right thing and for his courage".

"She wanted to have it", Tarantino said.

Thurman's interview with the New York Times was published on Saturday, and in it she accused Weinstein of sexually assaulting her. I talked her into getting in the auto, I assured her the road was safe.

"Quentin came in my trailer and didn't like to hear no, like any director", she told Dowd. Thurman told Dowd she'd severely injured her neck and knees and suffered a concussion due to the crash. "I've got big shoulders and I can handle it". I do not believe though with malicious intent.

Is the Oscar-winning director's time in the spotlight over? "This business (expletive) and enables predators and (expletive) ENOUGH", she said.
