Michelle Yeoh reveals why Quentin Tarantino didn’t cast her in ‘Kill Bill’

  • During Michelle Yeoh’s recent cover interview with Town & Country, she revealed that she asked director Quentin Tarantino why she was not cast in his movie “Kill Bill.”
  • The filmmaker previously shared that the international superstar was a major influence behind the film’s protagonist Beatrix “The Bride” Kiddo, played by Uma Thurman.
  • “I asked Quentin the same question,” the Chinese Malaysian actor said. “He’s very smart. He said, ‘Who would believe that Uma Thurman could kick your ass?'”
  • Yeoh went on to share that her friendship with Tarantino goes way back as he convinced her to continue acting after she sustained a spinal injury on the set of her 1996 movie “The Stunt Woman.”
  • “I must say, Quentin, he’s persistent,” Yeoh continued. “He is who he is today because he’s full of passion and love, so he wore me down. Suddenly we became animated. So then I thought, ‘Maybe I’m not ready to give up on this.'”
  • Tarantino admitted that he was “a huge, huge fan of hers” as “there was always a twinkle in her eye.”
