Busy Philipps is calling out director Quentin Tarantino and says she’s “embarrassed” that she ever auditioned for him.
Philipps took to Twitter to express her regret after hearing a resurfaced audio recording from 2003 where Tarantino defended Roman Polanski to Howard Stern during Polanski’s infamous statutory rape case. Philipps also tweeted her disgust for the director after Uma Thurman came forward with abuse allegations in a New York Times article.
“Like f**king spitting on an actress’ face and choking her wasn’t enough,” the 38-year-old actress tweeted referencing the report where Thurman claimed Tarantino had spit on and choked her during the filming of “Kill Bill”.
“F**k this guy. F**k anyone who works with him. I’m embarrassed that I ever auditioned for him. F**k him,” she added.
“I f**king showed up in SHORT SHORTS AND FLIP FLOPS as requested because I WANTED THE JOB,” she continued to say about the audition. “This business sucks and enables predators and F**KING ENOUGH.” She also added, “By the way, this was 10 years ago. I’m SURE I’M TOO F**KING OLD NOW.”
Philipps concluded, “Ok. Sorry. I have to go put my two girls to bed and pray that they get to grow up in a world where drugging and raping a child at 13 isn’t laughed off in a radio interview ‘because she wanted it.’”
