Feminist Jane Fonda said she’d love the opportunity to work with director Quentin Tarantino, at a Cannes event Monday.
Fonda, 80, praised Tarantino while on stage with Michael Madsen at Cannes’ Croisette in France and asked the actor to put in a good word for her, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Madsen previously starred in four Tarantino films. Fonda said she would work with the director in a “blue minute.”
“Would you put in a good word for me? Oh my god, I’ll bring you to a party tonight if you’ll get me into a Tarantino film,” Fonda joked to Madsen.
The actress’ praise of the director follows controversies regarding Tarantino’s actions on set of the 2003 film “Kill Bill.” Tarantino admitted he knew about Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct and that the disgraced producer also allegedly sexually assaulted actress Uma Thurman, according to CNN.
Tarantino also bullied Thurman into doing a dangerous stunt that injured her on the set of “Kill Bill.” “Quentin came in my trailer and didn’t like to hear ‘no,’ like any director,” Thurman told The New York Times in February. “He was furious because I’d cost them a lot of time. But I was scared.”(RELATED: Megyn Kelly Fires Back At Jane Fonda Over Plastic Surgery-ghazi [VIDEO])
Tarantino previously defended director Roman Polanski who pleaded guilty to raping a 13-year-old girl, claiming that “she was down with it,” in a 2003 interview.
Fonda also knew about Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct for at least a year, saying in a 2017 CNN interview that she was ashamed for not taking action right away.
