Debra Tate, sister of Sharon Tate, says that she believes that Quentin Tarantino is glorifying her sister’s death for his new film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” which is set in Los Angeles in 1969 and just signed on Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt to play neighbors of Sharon Tate (a role that Margot Robbie is rumored to play).
Speaking with TMZ, Debra Tate says she believes the actors didn’t think the situation through or think of the social ramifications: “To (celebrities) it’s a paycheck and these people just don’t care. They are terribly hurtful to the actual family and all the living victims. They don’t give a s–t.”
Tate has previously publicly slammed those exploiting her sister’s story in films, with actress Hilary Duff coming under fire when she posted a picture of herself as Sharon Tate on Instagram for an upcoming project. Tate said: “What kind of trash is she? That’s just absolutely garbage. Is there any point in that?”
Sharon Tate, who was murdered along with several others by the Manson Family in 1969, isn’t expected to play a major part in the film’s narrative which follows a washed-up movie star and his stunt double trying to get back into the business.
