Celebrity

As Philipps lashes out at Tarantino for saying in an old interview Polanski's 13-year-old statutory rape victim 'wanted to have it,' Kruger says working with the two-time Oscar winner was 'pure joy.'

AceShowbiz - Busy Philipps reveals she is "embarrassed" for ever wanting to work with Quentin Tarantino. The 38-year-old former "Cougar Town" star has taken to her Twitter account to slam the famed filmmaker after comments he made in a 2003 interview resurfaced online.

In a series of tweets she posted against Tarantino earlier this week, Philipps revealed her own experience with him in response to the resurfaced Howard Stern interview from 15 years ago. In the interview brought back to light by Jezebel, the "Kill Bill" helmer defended Roman Polanski, saying that the disgraced movie mogul's 13-year-old statutory rape victim "wanted to have it."

"F**K THIS GUY," Philipps began her rant. "QUENTIN IS CANCELLED. Cc: @yashar," she continued. "Like f**king spiting on an actresses face and choking her wasn't enough. F**k this guy. F**k anyone who works with him. I'm embarrassed that I ever auditioned for him. F**k him," the mother of two added.

Her last tweet referred to a recent New York Times interview with Uma Thurman in which the Oscar-nominated actress alleged Harvey Weinstein sexually assaulted her and detailed an "enormous" feud she had with Tarantino after the car crash that almost killed her when they were filming their 2003 film "Kill Bill".

In the piece, author Maureen Dowd also said Tarantino spit on and choked Thurman for scenes in the film. The 47-year-old actress did not directly talk about either incident. Later in a Deadline interview, Tarantino acknowledged that both moments happened, adding that it was "Uma's suggestion" for him to choke her for that shot in the movie. As for the spitting, he said he didn't want to ask anyone else to do it and it was easier for him to "kind of art direct this spit."

Fellow actress Diane Kruger was strangled in a similar fashion by Tarantino for their film "Inglourious Basterds". But the 41-year-old actress has come to the the 54-year-old helmer's defense, saying that working with him was "pure joy."

Taking to her Instagram account, Kruger wrote, "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," she continued, before setting the record straight, "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."
