A 2006 video of Fergie saying Quentin Tarantino bit her on the set of “Planet Terror” has recently resurfaced, but the actress/singer says the incident is not a cause for concern.
“We were just kind of having banter. We were having a little bit of fun,” the host of the Fox singing competition “The Four” told “Entertainment Tonight.” “But make no mistake, I don’t want to take away from anyone’s story, and I stand with every victim and everyone’s story everywhere.”
The video, a behind-the-scenes bonus feature from the physical release of the Robert Rodriguez film, was resurfaced by Jezebel after a New York Times interview in which “Kill Bill” star Uma Thurman said she blames the director for an on-set accident that caused her major injury.
Tarantino made an appearance as a zombie in “Planet Terror,” and Fergie said in the video that her scene partner got a little too into the role.
“As I was filming the scene where the zombies attack me, Quentin really got into it. I think he had a lot of fun with that,” she said, later playfully adding, “Quentin f—ing bit me. And by the end of this shoot, I will bite him back.”
Rodriguez clarified in his interview that “it wasn’t that bad. It wasn’t like a bite, she wasn’t bleeding or anything.” The director said, “Certainly you felt some teeth on flesh. It happens, people get into the role.”
“I stand with victims everywhere no matter what genre, race, gender, age. I stand with victims period, and I don’t want to take away from anyone’s story,” Fergie told “ET” on Thursday, more than a decade later. “That just wasn’t my story.”
