The great beauty of the Internet is that nothing ever dies on it. A 2006 clip of Fergie discussing Quentin Tarantino has resurfaced in light of Uma Thurman's recent allegations against Quentin Tarantino regarding a car accident on the set of Kill Bill. Tarantino has since called the incident "one of my most horrendous mistakes."

Anyway, back to Fergalicious. Jezebel dug up footage of her on a Grindhouse double feature DVD that included Tarantino's Death Proof and Robert Rodriguez's Planet Terror. In the 2006 clip, Fergie discussed how Tarantino went method on the shoot for Planet Terror, which he co-produced. Tarantino was standing in for a zombie character. “As I was filming the scene where the zombies attack me, Quentin really got into it. I think he had a lot of fun with that,” she says. As Jezebel points out, in the clip showing the bite Fergie can be heard laughing and saying “Fucker, get off me.”

“It wasn’t that bad. It wasn’t like a bite, she wasn’t bleeding or anything,” Robert Rodriguez says in the clip. “Certainly you felt some teeth on flesh. It happens, people get into the role.”

Jezebel reported that in a 2007 interview with Maxim, Fergie spoke about the moment again. “In one scene, Quentin got really into the character and bit me. My manager has it on his camera. I’m not going to sue him or anything, but I wanted documentation. It was crazy cool.”

Since the clip has been making the rounds, Fergie has spoken up. "We were just kind of having banter. We were having a little bit of fun," she told ET. "But make no mistake, I don't want to take away from anyone's story, and I stand with every victim and everyone's story everywhere."

While Fergie doesn't show any indication that she had a problem with Tarantino's behavior—like Uma Thurman did—the incident fits nicely in the narrative building around him of putting women into physically dangerous situations.
