Despite Uma Thurman’s slamming Quentin Tarantino in the past for getting her into a stunt car accident, her daughter Maya Hawke is ecstatic about working with the director.
Hawke’s first feature film was certainly a way to follow in her mom’s footsteps. The budding actress appeared in Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Her mother, Thurman, worked with the director in three films including Pulp Fiction (1994), followed by Kill Bill: Volume 1 (2003) and Kill Bill: Volume 2 (2004).
Speaking to people, Hawke says about the experience:
“I’ve never been on a set where every single person who was there was equally as excited to be there as the actors and the director and everyone were.”
“He’s been working with the same people for so long and he’s executed such amazing work. Everyone has a tremendous amount of faith in him and in the projects and it gives an amazing collaborative feeling on set,” Hawke added as she was interviewed at the film’s Los Angeles premiere on Monday.
Despite the incident between Thurman and Tarantino that left her seriously injured while filming Kill Bill Vol. 2, the actress has reiterated that she has forgiven the director.
Although Thurman said before that “circumstances of this event were negligent to the point of criminality,” the actress believes there was no malicious intent from Tarantino.
“Quentin Tarantino, was deeply regretful and remains remorseful about this sorry event, and gave me the footage years later so I could expose it and let it see the light of day, regardless of it most likely being an event for which justice will never be possible,” Thurman previously captioned one of her recent post on Instagram.
