Quentin Tarantino refuses to help his mother financially after she ridiculed his writing ambitions.
Although the 58-year-old writer and director is now one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, he is still angry that his mother, Connie, who turns 75 next month, did not support his writing dreams, and at 12 he vowed never to share. … his condition is with her.
Speaking on The Moment podcast hosted by Billions co-creator Brian Koppelman, Tarantino recalled that his mother sided with teachers after he got into trouble writing scripts at school.
He said: “[She] took offense at me for that … and then in the middle of her little tirade, she said, “Oh, by the way, this little writing career,” quoting with her finger and all. This little writing career that you are making? This shit is over. “
“When she said this to me sarcastically, I said, ‘Well, lady, when I become a successful writer, you will never get a dime of my success. There will be no home for you. There will be no vacation for you, no Elvis Cadillac for mom. You won’t get anything. Because you said it. “
When asked if he kept this oath, Quentin said, “Yes. I helped her with the tax office jam. But not at home. Not a Cadillac, not a house.
“Your words have consequences when you communicate with your children. Remember, your sarcastic tone about what matters to them has consequences. “
