Tarantino sees off bur­glars

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”
