Funny Things Happened at The Quentin Tarantino Roast
Uma Thurman told a story of an on-set spat during the filming of Kill Bill. Her phone went off during shooting and Tarantino shouted, "You let your phone go off one more time and I'll make sure you regret the day you ever started acting!" She screamed back, "That happened a long time ago, motherf*cker!" So clearly a lot of "motherf*ckers" were thrown around. Uma than proceeded to remove her shoes, fill them with wine, and her and Quentin drank a toast.
Jeffrey Ross, who always kills at roasts, again offered up some of the best digs. To wrap up his time at the dais, he ended with these kind words: ?"Thank you for making all us movie geeks seem a little cooler," he told Tarantino before ending with another joke. "You changed the face of cinema. I just wish cinema would return the favor." Nailed it!
Rob Schneider also took to the podium to explain why John Travolta, who sent a congratulatory note to Tarantino, was absent from the event. "There was a "Fags in Denial Who Believe in Aliens" convention," Schneider suggested. Damn, Schneider. DAMN. (FilmDrunk, THR)
