2 BURGLARS ENTER, ONE QUENTIN TARANTINO SCARES THEM AWAY
So who knew Quentin Tarantino was a badass? I certainly didn’t. But I bet he didn’t either. Two burglars broke into his mansion in Los Angeles, California last week. But the situation surprised them all. The man who brought us movies with badass characters like Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill(s) and Pulp Fiction went into action himself. Who scares burglars out of their home? The answer appears to be, Quentin Tarantino! The director confronted the two when they all came face to face. Fortunately, there were no injuries in the dangerous confrontation. Well, maybe some adrenal glands ended up bruised. That would traumatize anyone.
BURGLARS SCALED FENCE, BROKE REAR WINDOW TO ENTER MANSION
But anyway, the two burglars broke in by smashing a window at the back of the property. They also climbed a fence to get in. When Tarantino hear a noise, everything got suddenly very real. One of his close friends told media, “He heard a noise, went to investigate and was shocked to find them rifling through drawers and cabinets. He stood his ground like a character in one of his films and faced them down. They must have been stunned because they just stood there for a moment like they were frozen before running off into the night. He was pretty shaken but reckons he just acted instinctively by confronting the raiders. Thank God they weren’t armed.” Indeed. But if they had guns, at least they didn’t use them…
SCARED THIEVES STILL MADE OFF WITH JEWELRY, OTHER PERSONAL ITEMS
Police reported that the two still made off with “jewelry and other personal items.” But they are now also scouring video from Tarantino’s home security system as well as his neighbors’. The 55-year-old Tarantino recently wed Daniella Pick, the 35-year-old pop star from Israel. Currently, the talented director is shooting a new movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The title is a play on Sergio Leone’s last two major films. But this film stars both Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio. Quentin is telling the story of the Manson Family Murders from 1969. So we can be afraid of watching that now, as well.
PS- Why does Tarantino now look like an even scarier version of Gene Simmons? He’d scare me away, too. And Gene Simmons was plenty scary! So who was more afraid? Quentin? Or the burglars?
