Tarantino sees off burglars
TOP Hollywood film-maker Quentin Tarantino tackled two burglars who broke in to his mansion.
The director of Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs confronted the pair at his LA home.
A close pal of Tarantino,
55, said he found them rifling through drawers and cabinets.
He said the raiders scaled a perimeter fence and broke in by smashing a window at the back of the property.
The friend said Tarantino “heard a loud noise, went to investigate and was shocked to discover them still in the house.
“I’m sure he must have been terrified but he stood his ground like one of the characters in his films and just 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.”
Police said the thieves made off with “jewellery and other personal items”. Detectives are now scouring video surveillance footage from Tarantino’s security system.
The moviemaker, who married Israeli pop star Daniella Pick, 35, in November, is shooting Once Upon A Time In Hollywood – set at the time of the infamous
1969 Manson Family murders and starring Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio.
His friend added: “He was pretty shaken but reckons he acted instinctively by confronting the raiders. Thank God they weren’t armed – and were so scared themselves they fled.”
