Jessica Chastain Lays Into Quentin Tarantino Over Uma Thurman Incident: ‘When Did This Become Normalized Entertainment?’
"We don't need abuse in order to be powerful," she said.

Jessica Chastain isn’t happy with Quentin Tarantino. After yesterday’s Uma Thurman interview in the New York Times, in which she both accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault and blamed Tarantino for serious injuries she sustained while filming “Kill Bill,” Chastain took to Twitter to chastise the director for his actions.

“I keep imagining Tarantino spitting in Uma’s face and strangling her with a chain for KILL BILL. How many images of women in media do we celebrate that showcase abuse? When did this become normalized ‘entertainment’?” she wrote.

“When violence against women is used as a plot device to make the characters stronger then we have a problem. It is not empowering to be beaten and raped, yet so many films make it their ‘pheonix’ moment for women. We don’t need abuse in order to be powerful. We already are.”
