Quentin Tarantino Unloads on NYT Reporter Who Claimed He Limited the Female Role in ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’

Director Quentin Tarantino unloaded on a female reporter after she asked why Margot Robbie, the female star in his new film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, does not have a larger role.
“I reject your hypothesis,” Quentin Tarantino snapped at the reporter from the New York Times during a panel held Wednesday at the Cannes Film Festival, according to Variety.
Actress Robbie plays historic Hollywood starlet Sharon Tate who was murdered in 1969 by Charles Manson’s cultists. But Tarantino’s film mostly follows the lives of a struggling TV actor named Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt). Tate is a side character in the film.
Tarantino was visibly annoyed by the query, but Robbie, who was also on the panel, jumped in to try and answer the reporter’s question.
“I think the moments I was on screen gave a moment to honor Sharon,” Robbie said. “I think the tragedy was the loss of innocence. To show the wonderful sides of her could be done without speaking. I did feel like I got a lot of time to explore the character without dialogue, which is an interesting thing. Rarely do I get an opportunity to spend so much time on my own as a character.”
Earlier in the presser, star Leonardo DiCaprio said that the movie, which has received mostly positive reviews, is a love letter to the Hollywood he grew up in and reveres.
“I think this movie is a love story to this industry,” DiCaprio told the press. “We studied people from Ralph Meeker to Eddie Byrne, all these actors whose work [Tarantino] really appreciates from an artistic perspective, who contributed in his mind to cinematic and television achievements. That was most touching about the story. It’s a love letter to this industry we’re so fortunate to work in.”
For his part, Brad Pitt said his co-star, with whom he worked with for the very first time, was a great partner.
“It’s that thing of knowing you got the best of the best on the opposite side of the table holding up the scene with you,” Pitt said. “We had similar experiences to laugh about. I hope we do it again.”

Professor Igor Panarin is correct – absent a counter-revolution, the USA will disintegrate.
MAY 2019 ADDENDUM: These reflections, published free online in November 2018, can in the light of recent events be read in the context that it is now clear that President Donald Trump is moving ahead with Global Currency Reset initiatives, and that we can expect the initiatives I outlined below prior to his massive 4th of July celebration. He continues to resist on disclosure, perhaps believing that free energy (ET/UFO disclosure) and Zionist perfidy (9/11 disclosure) are best left to the second term. I continue to give our President the benefit of the doubt while producing a weekly Election 2020 report free online.
If he cancels the federal income tax (substituting the transaction tax applied to all transactions including stock and currency transactions) and announces a student education and elderly health debt jubilee, he is locked in. Yet to be settled are the issues of Free Speech, Right to Bear Arms, and the cutting of the federal budget in half starting with defense, which is 50% waste and cannot win wars.

(Natural News) For more than two years — before POTUS Donald Trump declared in March 2017 that the Obama regime ‘eavesdropped’ on his campaign — this site and others in our network reported that the Deep State had launched an operation to spy on Team Trump 2016.
And though we didn’t have nearly all the answers then, instinctively we were certain that eavesdropping was part of a larger effort to undermine the president’s campaign and help his corrupt rival, Hillary Clinton.
After two years and many other examples, The New York Times, which actually first reported on the “wiretapping” by the Obama White House, has finally admitted that, yes indeed, there were spies (plural!) the former administration attempted to implant in the Trump campaign in what we now know was a brazen attempt to disrupt POTUS’ candidacy.
The Times report began:
The conversation at a London bar in September 2016 took a strange turn when the woman sitting across from George Papadopoulos, a Trump campaign adviser, asked a direct question: Was the Trump campaign working with Russia?
The paper went on to report that the woman’s name is Azra Turk; she became the secondperson known to have been sent by the Obama deep state intelligence apparatus to gain access to the Trump campaign so as to sabotage it from the inside.
The first was longtime FBI asset and Cambridge University Professor Stefan Halper, who not only tried to infiltrate the Trump campaign but also tried to get a job with the incoming administration so he could undermine the new president as a so-called ‘fifth columnist.’
The Times attempted to brush off Turk’s involvement (and, by default, Stefan’s) in attempting to infiltrate the Trump campaign as an effort by an ‘anxious’ FBI overly concerned about Russian espionage. But that excuse doesn’t wash because the so-called “Russian collusion” narrative used by the Obama deep state all along to justify the spying was fabricated.
There never was any concerted Russian effort to penetrate the Trump campaign. And even so, there was never any chance that Moscow (or any other nation for that matter) could muster the wherewithal and resources to alter an American election.
The establishment media has destroyed our unity over a lie
What is so galling about this ‘admission’ by the Times — two years after the paper itself reported that Team Trump had been “wiretapped” by Obama — is that a) the paper enabled the collusion hoax to perpetuate in the interceding months and years, even going so far as to publish several fake news stories to nurture it; and b) that this latest admission story is still based on the premise that the hoax was real.
It wasn’t. It never has been real. Obama knows that; the Times knew it. And so did the rest of the so-called “establishment” media like the Washington Post and CNN. But where are their mea culpas? Where are their retractions? Corrections? Admissions that their unhinged proclamations about Trump’s alleged guilt over the past two years were absolutely false?
The fact that there were three primary ‘news’ sources — the Times, the Post, and CNN — that even got these Russian collusion bombshell/dud stories ought to have told you the media circle for perpetuating the hoax was very small, thus ensuring that fewer people were in on the scam.
The American people were extremely divided after eight years of Obama as it was. Using the collusion hoax as a springboard, the American ‘mainstream’ media was complicit in using it to keep the masses stirred up and Democrat supporters fed a steady diet of suspicion and hate.
The Post, CNN, and the other establishment media hacks will never apologize for perpetuating the collusion lie and keeping Americans at each other’s throats. But in a bit of irony, they have all but destroyed their credibility in the process.
Trump warned that he is monitoring “the censorship of AMERICAN CITIZENS on social media platforms.”
“This is the United States of America—and we have what’s known as FREEDOM OF SPEECH!” he said. “We are monitoring and watching, closely!!”
He also reposted commentary on the alleged censorship from several prominent right-wing figures, including The Daily Wire Executive Producer Jeremy Boreing, journalist and activist Lauren Southern, and commentator Paul Joseph Watson—who were among those purged by Facebook.
“So surprised to see Conservative thinkers like James Woods banned from Twitter, and Paul Watson banned from Facebook!” Trump said in another tweet.
