Fact follows Pulp Fiction
Tarantino faces home burglars
QUENTIN Tarantino was in a stand-off worthy of one of his violent films when burglars broke into his LA mansion.
The Pulp Fiction director, 55, stood his ground and faced down two intruders he caught rifling through his home at night.
The crooks, who broke in by climbing a fence and smashing a window, fled with jewellery.
A pal revealed how the Kill Bill and Reservoir Dogs writer was alerted by a loud noise and shocked to find the burglars. He said: “He must have been terrified but stood his ground like characters in his films and just faced them down. They must have been stunned, they just stood there for a moment, like they were frozen, before running off into the night.”
Tarantino, who married Israeli pop star Daniella Pick, 35, in November, is shooting a film about the infamous 1969 Manson Family murders starring Brad Pitt, 55, and Leonardo DiCaprio, 44.
His friend added: “He reckons he just acted instinctively by confronting the raiders. Thank God they weren’t armed.”
In 1996 he told an interviewer he was willing to kill an intruder, even they were just a kid of 12.
He said: “I would empty the gun until you were dead.”
A spokesman for Tarantino said he could not comment.
