She said: ‘I understand they want to make the Brad Pitt character this super bad-a** who could beat up Bruce Lee. But they didn’t need to treat him in the way that white Hollywood did when he was alive.

However Quentin defended the depiction of Bruce and told reporters at Entertainment Weekly: ‘Bruce Lee was kind of an arrogant guy. I didn’t just make a lot of that up. I heard him say things like that.

‘People are saying, “Well, he never said he could beat up Muhammad Ali,” yeah, he did.’
