Busy Philipps ‘Embarrassed’ She Ever Auditioned for Quentin Tarantino: ‘F— This Guy’

Actress takes filmmaker to task after his sympathy for convicted rapist Roman Polanski resurfaces

Actress Busy Philipps says she is embarrassed that she ever auditioned for a Quentin Tarantino film 10 years ago after audio resurfaced in which the filmmaker said Roman Polanski didn’t rape a 13-year-old, but instead she “wanted to have it.”

“F— THIS GUY,” Philipps said in a first of many tweets about the “Pulp Fiction” director. “QUENTIN IS CANCELLED. SORRY YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO THIS FUCK QUENTIN TARANTINO YOU ARE FUCKING CANCELLED.”

She added, “Like f—ing spiting on an actresses face and choking her wasn’t enough. F— this guy. F— anyone who works with him. I’m embarrassed that I ever auditioned for him. F— him. That I f—ing showed up in SHORT SHORTS AND FLIP FLOPS as requested because I WANTED THE JOB. This business sucks and enables predators and F—ING ENOUGH.”

On Tuesday, a 2003 radio interview with Tarantino resurfaced in which the filmmaker says that the 13-year-old girl Polanski was convicted of raping in 1977 “wanted to have it.”

“He was guilty of having sex with a minor,” he said on the Howard Stern Show. A contributor on Stern’s show cut in to say that it was sex she didn’t want to have. “No, that was not the case at all. She wanted to have it,” Tarantino said. “And by the way, we’re talking about America’s morals, we’re not talking about the morals of Europe and everything.”

Philipps did not stop her tweets there: “Ok. Sorry. I have to go put my two girls to bed and pray that they 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.'”

Tarantino made headlines this week after a New York Times interview with Uma Thurman, in which she discusses a car crash scene in “Kill Bill” she said she asked not to do herself and caused the actress permanent neck damage.

Thurman later said that she does not believe Tarantino had any “malicious intent” in wanting her to perform the stunt herself, and said he is “remorseful” about the event. The director said in an interview with Deadline that the car crash scene is “the biggest regret of my life.”
