Kruger continued: "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.
"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."
Actress Busy Phillips, however, has no love for Tarantino and condemned both his on-set behaviour and his defence of Roman Polanski over the sexual assault of a 13-year-old.
“Like fucking spiting [sic] on an actresses face and choking her wasn't enough,” Phillips posted on Twitter. “Fuck this guy. Fuck anyone who works with him. I'm embarrassed that I ever auditioned for him. Fuck him.”
Tarantino has also responded to Thurman’s recollections about the car crash, describing the incident as "one of the biggest regrets" of his life.
"It was heartbreaking," Tarantino said, CNN reports. "Beyond one of the biggest regrets of my career, it is one of the biggest regrets of my life. For a myriad of reasons."
