Quentin Tarantino Vows To Never Share A “Penny” With His Mother
Director Quentin Tarantino has explained why he will never share any of his financial success with his mother.
Tarantino, who has roughly earned $120 million over his directing career from films such as ‘Django Unchained’ and ‘Pulp Fiction’ revealed during a podcast the reason why he will never give his mother any of his money.
Speaking to Brain Koppelman on his podcast The Moment, the director revealed that at a young age his mother would mock his writing.
“My mom was bi*ching at me about writing screenplays… and then in the middle of her little tirade, she said, ‘Oh, and by the way, this little writing career that you’re doing? That sh*t is f**king over,’” he said.
It was there and then that Tarantino said he decided he would never give his mother a single penny from his success as a director.
“There are consequences for your words as you deal with your children. Remember there are consequences for your sarcastic tone about what’s meaningful to them,” he said as a message to future parents.
Tarantino also recalled how at school his teachers would always criticise him for writing screenplays instead of essays.
Back in June, the director doubled down on his plan to retire after releasing his tenth and final film. He is currently brainstorming ideas for his next film.
In a statement released to USA Today, Tarantino’s mother Connie Zastoupil has said that her son has her full love and support.
“Regarding my son Quentin – I support him. I’m proud of him and love him and his growing new family,” she told the news outlet.
She also noted that it was easy for her son’s quotes to “spin and go viral without full context”, adding that she does “not wish to participate in this salacious transactional media frenzy.”
