Quentin Tarantino Says 13-Year-Old Was 'Down With' Having Sex with Roman Polanski

Pulp Fiction director Quentin Tarantino is working hard to change the mind of anyone who still thinks he's a decent guy. Already dealing with accusations that abused actress Uma Thurman on the set of Kill Bill: Vol. 1, he now has to deal with the resurfacing of an old interview in which he defended filmmaker Roman Polanski's right to have sex with an adolescent girl. It's an ugly look for Tarantino, who really doesn't need to look any more tolerant of sexual abuse right now.

Quentin Tarantino may be trying to act like a woeful choirboy in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein allegations, but he seems all the more mendacious in the light of an old interview in which he claimed Roman Polanski’s 13-year-old rape victim “wanted to have it.”

Tarantino defended Polanski during a 2003 Howard Stern interview — which resurfaced on Jezebel — saying, “He didn’t rape a 13-year-old … he had sex with a minor. That’s not rape.”

When reminded by Stern sidekick Robin Quivers that Polanski’s victim was plied with drugs and alcohol, Tarantino said, “No, that was not the case at all. She wanted to have it [sex] and dated the guy … Look, she was down with this.”

Tarantino, who ruefully said of Weinstein, “I knew enough to do more than I did,” was accused by Uma Thurman of forcing her to do a car crash stunt in “Kill Bill” that left her injured, plus he spat in her face and choked her with a chain because he didn’t trust a trained actor to do it.
