Fact fol­lows Pulp Fic­tion

Tarantino faces home bur­glars

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News - BY MIKE PARKER in Los An­ge­les [email protected]­daymir­ror.co.uk

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.

Vich art in heaven HOL­LY­WOOD leg­end John Malkovich, 65, “blesses” crowds in full Vat­i­can re­galia. He prays op­po­site Jude Law, 46, in TV drama The New Pope, be­ing filmed in Venice. It could be his most blessed partyet.
