Tarantino had already said he had contacted Sharon Tate’s sister and had gotten her blessing before filming. He had also reached out to others as well.

The first trailer for the film includes a scene of Moh’s Bruce Lee fighting with Pitt’s character, Cliff Booth.

 

Lee said there were different ways that she could have been approached but the end result would have been the same.

“If they contacted me, I could be completely unreasonable and a pain in the ass and make all kinds of ridiculous demands — but they don’t know that I’m not going to do that,” she said according to IndieWire.
