Quentin Tarantino: I Made a Childhood Vow Never to Give My Mom a Penny

Quentin Tarantino Will Not Share A Penny Of His Film Fortune With His Mother To Teach Her A Lesson From His Childhood, And His Explanation Has Me Speechless

Quentin Tarantino says he kept a promise he made during a fight with his mother years ago to never give her a penny of his filmmaking fortune. 

The 58-year-old “Pulp Fiction” director appeared on “The Moment” podcast where he told host, “Billions” actor Brian Koppelman,” about the time his mother discouraged his writing and filmmaking career when he was about 12 years old.

At the time, a young Tarantino was spending his time in school writing screenplays, which his teachers viewed as an act of “rebellion,” presumably because he was not assigned to write said screenplays. This caused some friction between him and his mother, Connie Zastoupil. One day, when he got in some trouble, his mother noted during a lecture that she was not going to indulge his writing habit any longer.

“When she said that to me in that sarcastic way, I go, ‘OK, lady, when I become a successful writer, you will never see penny one from my success. There will be no house for you. There’s no vacation for you, no Elvis Cadillac for mommy. You get nothing. Because you said that.'”

As for a true emergency? “Yeah. I helped her out with a jam with the IRS,” Tarantino admitted. “But no house. No Cadillac, no house.”

He added, “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.”

Tarantino is absolutely right about that. Negative comments parents make can have a lifelong impact on their children’s lives — no matter how small they may seem to those hurling them. Consider this another reminder that you should always support your kids’ dreams, no matter how far-fetched they may seem.
