At the age of 12, Tarantino decided that once he got famous, he wouldn't give a penny to his mother: to this day he kept his word
This decision was made by the famous director at the age of 12, due to his mother's dissatisfaction with what he was interested in - writing a screenplay. But should Tarantino forgive his mother?
American screenwriter, film director, and actor Quentin Tarantino, who boasts of a distinctive way of telling stories on the movie screen, has decided to keep the promise he made to his mother at just 12 years old. You may be quite shocked by his decision, as are many of his fans, but he intends to stick to it.
Namely, during Brian Koppelman's podcast, Tarantino revealed that he would never share his wealth, more precisely money, with his mother Connie who gave birth to him when she was only 16, and his father left them before Quentin's birth.
Connie didn't really support her son but made sarcastic comments at his every attempt to create something of his own. In other words - she did not believe in him, which can shake every child's self-confidence and make him doubt his abilities. Tarantino didn't listen to her.
He started writing screenplays at the age of 12, but the teachers at his school were not very kind to him because they thought he was avoiding school obligations, which is why his mother took it to heart.
"She always said, 'What do you want with this writing career?' I told her, "When I become successful, you won't see a penny of my success. You won't get anything, no house, no travel, no cars, nothing. Because you said that." And I kept my word, ”Tarantino said.
Still on his own
When Koppelman asked if Tarantino had really kept his promise, the director confirmed, "Yes," explaining, "I helped her with the tax administration stalemate. But no Cadillacs, no new home," Tarantino said.
But when Koppelman gave him a counter-argument, saying that it was his mother's words that prompted him to succeed, Tarantino replied: "Your words have consequences, especially in the upbringing of your children. Your sarcastic tone about what interests them leads to, well- a consequence ", said the director.
Quentin Tarantino has already had a long list of successful films such as "Kill Bill", "Django Unchained" and "Once Upon a Time ... In Hollywood". He also recently became a father - his wife Daniella gave birth to their son Leo. In June this year, he said he was considering ‘retiring’ as a film director and would love to create plays or write books.
