Quentin Tarantino Stuck To Childhood Promise To Never Give A 'Penny' To His Mom

Growing up, I always told my mom if I ever made it big, I would buy her a new house. It's just one of those things every kid with big dreams says to their parents, right? Maybe I was just too self-absorbed?

While I haven't made it big yet, I'm still trying to gift my mom with as many things as I can because, well... she's my mom. Do you know who isn't doing that for their mom? Hollywood legend Quentin Tarantino.

Quentin Tarantino is the Hollywood director everyone knows about, even if you know nothing about Hollywood directors.

He's responsible for films such as Pulp Fiction, Inglorious Bastards, The Hateful Eight, Kill Bill and Django Unchained — ever heard of them?

According to a quick Google search I just did, the 58-year-old is worth an estimated $120 million.

Despite being a man approaching 60, Quentin recently revealed he's stuck to a childhood promise of never sharing his wealth with his mother.

Recounting the story on a recent episode of The Moment podcast, the director explained his stubborn stance.

He explained that when he was 12, his mother once sided with his teachers after he got in trouble for writing screenplays in class instead of doing his actual school work.

After the scolding, he said that his mum "was bitching at me about that... and then in the middle of her little tirade, she said, ‘Oh, and by the way, this little ‘writing career,’ with the finger quotes and everything. This little ‘writing career’ that you’re doing? That [explective] is over.'"

He continued:

"When she said that to me in that sarcastic way, I go, 'Okay lady, when I become a successful writer, you will never see one 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.'"

When the podcast host asked if the director had really followed through with this promise, the director confirmed he had, explaining, "I helped her out with a jam with the IRS. But no house. No Cadillac, no house."

"There are consequences for your words as you deal with your children," Quentin continued. "Remember there are consequences for your sarcastic tone about what's meaningful to them."
