Uma Thurman Releases Graphic Video Of Car Crash That Happened 15 Years Ago On ‘Kill Bill’ Sets

Actress Uma Thurman recently shared a graphic video of her famed accident, on the sets of ‘Kill Bill’, in her Instagram account. The complete footage which is quite graphic for certain audience shows her struggling to control the fast moving car leading her to crash into a tree. She was seen lying unconscious after the accident.  The actress sustained permanent injuries to her neck and knees. She also suffered concussions as a result of the accident. The footage was handed to her by director Quentin Tarantino himself as he wanted to help her out with the New York Times article in which she has shared details of the car crash. She didn’t forget to mention that Tarantino was deeply regretful over the whole incident. It was in this article, that Uma Thurman accused producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct.

The details of the fateful accident

Since the time the details of the accident emerged in The New York Times article, Tarantino has been receiving criticism. In his defense, the Director made it clear that it was him who gave the footage to Uma Thurman to assist her with the New York Times article. He said “Uma and I had talked about it, for a long period of time, deciding how she was going to do it. She wanted clarity on what happened in that car crash, after all these years,” he said.

Revealing the details of the accident, he explained that he never considered the act a stunt because it just involved driving. He was confident that Uma Thurman would be able to pull off this act. However, when Uma expressed her own fears about the act, Tarantino personally drove down the road to test it. He thought that the road was okay and safe. But he was wrong.

 “I told her the road was a straight line. I told her it would be safe. And it wasn’t. I was wrong. I didn’t force her into the car. She got into it because she trusted me. And she believed me”, he said.

Russian Modelling Agency ‘Oldushka’ Tells Us That Ageing Is Beautiful

When we think of beauty, the image that often strikes our minds are that of youthful faces, well-toned bodies and smooth chiseled features with no flaws. We are habituated to seeing perfect models on the cover of magazines and catalogues; therefore we’ve come to define beauty on these lines. However, in the past few years, there has been a gradual shift in the way the glamor industry perceives beauty. Stereotypes have been broken when it comes to model size, colour and ethnicity.

Plus size models, models with varied ethnic backgrounds and race are creating a comfortable identity for themselves in the industry. However, one specific area that still needs to be worked upon is to embrace the beauty in ageing. How often we’ve seen senior models representing beauty, fashion and brands? Not often. There is a Russian modelling agency appropriately called ‘Oldushka’ that is setting new beauty standards by representing models from the age of 45 and way up to 85.

The agency was born when photographer Igor Gavar captured the beauty of ageing and the personal styles of the aged in his blog that also goes by the same name- Oldushka. He came across some very interesting faces and decided to continue working with them.

Pope Francis Says No To Fake News And Yes To Journalism Of Peace

Pope Francis recently gave a talk condemning fake news and emphasizing on dignity of journalism.  He even released a message on Catholic feast day of journalists called “The truth will set you free: Fake news and journalism for peace that has biblical references. In the message, he defined fake news so that the masses can identify and stay away from it. While defining fake news, he went to the extent of comparing it with the Serpent’s manipulation of Eve in the Garden of Eden.

Instead of using current day examples, he beautifully narrated the serpent’s manipulation of Eve from the Bible to give examples of fake news and how it can have disastrous effects on people. The serpent asked Eve if God had instructed her not to eat from any of the trees in the garden. It was misinforming her.

The truth is that God never told Adam not to eat from any tree instead he told Adam not to eat the fruits from only one specific tree that is the ‘Tree of Knowledge.’ The message was put across in a wrong manner by the serpent which ultimately led to the downfall of Adam, Eve and their descendants.
