List him as one of the greatest filmmakers of his time and you will certainly not be wrong. Quentin Tarantino is one of the seniors in the movie industry who had a distinct taste of portraying what will have the film viewers absorbed in a nonlinear storyline, satirical subjects, elongated scenes of dialogue, and sometimes artistic detailed display of violence.
His acts were often unknown actors and actresses whose performances were amplified with background soundtracks most millennials will categorize as ancient. Here, we will get to know Quentin Tarantino a lot more than who he is seen as at movie cast locations.
Background Information on Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Jerome Tarantino was born on March 27, 1963, to Connie McHugh and Tony Tarantino in Knoxville, Tennessee. His father Tony is of Italian descent while his mother has Cherokee and Irish ancestry. His mother was a nurse and married his father, a lawyer, and actor who she met in Los Angeles at an early age to gain independence from her parents. However, the love so to say; that led to their hasty marriage was quick to flee as the marriage lasted only but for a while.
Connie had to relocate to Knoxville for a while as she had a son to take care of and needed some support. By 1996, she moved back to the South Bay of Los Angeles where Quentin did much of his growing up. She later remarried Curtis Zastoupil who was a good stepfather to her son.
By this time, Quentin Tarantino had started taking a liking to movies with his parents encouraging him. They often took him to the movies and sometimes allowed him to watch films that had adult-rated content in them. Perhaps this later defined the type of movies he directed. His mother would later divorce Zastoupil to remarry again. We can summarily conclude this phase of Quentin Tarantino’s story by submitting that he had a broken childhood with the exception of seeing what was barred from other kids his age.
The talented director, actor, and writer resented school from a very early age. But on the flip side, he was quick to learn how to read and write. The time he spent at school was devoted more to history which was a subject he loved for being more like a movie.
He dropped out of Narbonne High School in Harbor City, Los Angeles at the age of 15 near 16. Sequel to this, he got a job that would give him ample time to see movies albeit doing his job at the same time. He claimed to be of adult age though. Young Quentin worked as an usher in Pussycat Theatre in Torrance. A pornography theatre!
Well, he didn’t abuse the time working there afforded him as he also enrolled for classes at James Best Theatre Company. This afforded him an opportunity to meet like-minded people some of who later appeared in his films.
From here, he worked in a number of places, acted in movies like Sophia’s Wedding: Part 1, an episode in the Golden Girls, etc. He had so much knowledge about films that people were eager to watch any movie that was associated with him.
Net Worth and Brand Endorsements
Being one of the greatest movie directors America has ever produced, Quentin has a net worth of more than $100 million and enjoys brand endorsement from big business corporations and products like PerfecTV!, Samsung Note 7, and SoftBank.
Quentin Tarantino Wife and Girlfriend
Movie director Quentin Tarantino has been successful with women as much as his directing career has been successful. He had girlfriends at various times and these were not just any type of women but women who have been successful as well in their own careers. They range from actresses to film and television directors, writers, television hosts, comedians, fashion designers, songwriters, etc. A little bird gave their total number as 8.
This is not to say that Quentin was promiscuous though, No, far from it. He dated these women as an adult and they were adults as well. Besides, they mostly had one thing or the other to do in front of TV screens so we take it to be that they might have started off each as his colleagues at different times then the chemistry of admiration heated up.
These career women were listed to be: Ali Larter, Allison Anders, Kathy Griffin, Margaret Cho, Mira Sorvino, Shar Jackson, Sofia Coppola and Tilda Swinton in no particular order and at various times.
On the good side, however, it is said he got engaged to Israeli singer Daniella Pick on Friday, June 30, 2017. The two met when Quentin Tarantino was in Isreal to promote one of his movies Inglourious Basterds in 2009. Though in February of 2018, rumors had it that he split with her but it seems not to be true as there are no solid pointers to consider its veracity thereof.
Height and Body Stats
Quentin has an average body build structure. He is certainly tall and can’t be lost in a crowd at 6 feet 1 inch of height or 1.85m. His weight is put at 90kg or 198.5 pounds which he can be said to be maintained well
To some men, it is a pretty female face that turns them on, to others, it’s her perfectly textured bosom, and still, to many more, it is that perfectly contoured sexy female body curves that can humble the meanest of men to be under a woman’s dominance and sexual will. Still, to others, a special few where Quentin Tarantino subscribes membership, it is something as readily seen as a woman’s feet that turn on their sexual gears.
Quentin’s foot fetish is seen readily in his earlier movies. There will always be a scene of foot fetish which was one of his known signature styles. He will often have his female characters go barefoot for some scenes in his movies while in some cases, barefoot male characters will be shown at some scenes to perfectly act the scene in the best way possible. He simply would love to see barefooted scenes in his movies.
