Quentin Tarantino has claimed he made Harvey Weinstein apologise to Uma Thurman for sexually harassing her before the three worked together on 'Kill Bill'.
The 'Kill Bill' director has previously admitted he "knew" about Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct toward female employees, including Tarantino's former girlfriend Mira Sorvino.
Tarantino has now told Deadline that Thurman informed him about Weinstein's attempt to expose himself to her at the Savoy Hotel in London in the 90s and the 'Pulp Fiction' director told the producer he had to make things right with the actress before they shot the 'Kill Bill' films.
Tarantino said: "Mira had told me what Harvey had done to her. I couldn't believe it. We were now boyfriend and girlfriend and he was staying away ... Then, while we were getting ready to do 'Kill Bill', Uma tells me that he had done the same thing to her. That was when I realised there was a pattern, in Harvey's luring and pushing attacks. So I made Harvey apologise to Uma. In the Maureen Dowd article it says, that is when Quentin confronted Harvey? Well, my confrontation was saying, you have to go to Uma. This happened. You have to apologise to her and she has to accept your apology, if we're going to do 'Kill Bill' together."
Tarantino said Weinstein tried to down play Thurman's claims at the time but he never believed the mogul.
