Quentin Tarantino struck by a female journalist from The New York Times who asked why Margot Robbie didn't get more to say or do in her latest movie "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood."
"I reject your hypothesis," he said at a press conference for his new movie Wednesday morning at the Cannes Film Festival.
Robbie plays Sharon Tate in the movie. The film takes place in the 1960s Hollywood and focuses on a fighting TV actor named Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt Double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) as they make their way through a changing film industry.
At the press conference, Tarantino scowled – looks visibly upset ̵
"I think the moments I was on the screen gave Sharon a moment of honor," Robbie said. "I think the tragedy was the loss of innocence. Showing the wonderful sides of her could be done without speaking. I felt I had a lot of time to explore the character without dialogue, which is an interesting thing. spending as much time on your own as a sign. "
Sony Pictures & # 39; & # 39; Once Upon a Time in Hollywood premiere in Cannes for strong reviews on Tuesday night. This bitch exchange came at the end of the 30-minute press conference, where Tarantino and his cast field mostly congratulated questions that did not relate to Harvey Weinstein (who often worked with Tarantino) or Uma Thurman (who held an interview last year to New York) Times describing the alleged violent behavior she had to endure in the Tarantino hands on the "Kill Bill" statement.
Tarantino opened the press conference by addressing the public's continuing interest in Charles Manson and his cult. "I think we are fascinated by it because at the end of the day it seems unimaginable," Tarantino said. "I've done a lot of research on it. How he was he was able to get these girls and young boys to cement him seems incredible. The more you learn about it, the more information you get, it doesn't make it clear. It makes it more unclear. "
DiCaprio said that by raising two underdog characters in Hollywood, Tarantino wanted to celebrate the business he grew up in." I think this movie is a love story for this industry, "DiCaprio said. "We were studying people from Ralph Meeker to Eddie Byrne, all these actors whose work really appreciates from an artistic perspective that has contributed to his film for film and television. It was most touching about the story. It is a love letter to This industry, we are so fortunate to work in. "
The film is the first collaboration between Pitt and DiCaprio.
"It was very easy, fun," Pitt said. "It is the thing to know that you have the best of the best on the opposite side of the table holding the stage with you. We had similar experiences to laugh about. I hope we do it again."  Chaz Ebert asked Tarantino to address his life and how he has changed since "Pulp Fiction."
"I just got married six months ago," Tarantino said as he nodded to his wife-Daniella Pick who sat in the front row. "I've never done it before. Now I know why. I was waiting for the perfect girl." DiCaprio may be an Oscar-winning A-list, but he said he understood Dalton and his sense of failure.
"I immediately identified this character in many ways" he said. "I grew up in the industry. This guy is on the outskirts; time is changing and he's left. For me, it's a huge recognition I have for the position I'm in. I know how lucky I am. "
