Tarantino went on Stern earlier today, and, as usual, frankly revealed a veritable line of facts, many kilo bytes of information. And after the bump — er, jump — you can watch a video that’s making the rounds today of Tarantino’s favorite 20 movies of the past 17 years. He picked some movies that really rock.
Anyway, here’s one of the items Quentin told Stern:
Pitt recently told Bill Maher he no longer smokes weed, for the kids’ sake. Was he telling the truth?
“Quentin said that things eventually ended and he went to his hotel. He said that Brad had this big brick of hash and he was going to give him some for the night. He said that Brad whipped out a knife and cut up a big sliver for him and the stuff was pretty good. He said that he asked for a pipe to go with it and Brad handed him a Coke can to use instead. Quentin said that would make for a great scene in a movie and he may have to use that.”
Oooo, well look at Mr. Fancy Shmancy with his brand name soda can bong. Back in my day we had to settle for a Dr. Thunder bong out of the quarter pop machine at Walmart.
Here’s a quick summary of some of the other things Tarantino revealed on today’s episode of TMI, with Quentin:
Quentin hasn’t called John Travolta since his son’s death because he doesn’t know what to say.
Quentin made out with Kathy Griffin and had sex with Margaret Cho. Not at the same time though right? RIGHT?
He cast Eli Roth in Inglourious Basterds because he could do a Boston accent.
- Pink Floyd recorded “The Wall” in the music studio at the estate Pitt now owns.
Lindsay Lohan met Quentin and Eli at a club, and mistook Eli for Quentin’s assistant. Quentin corrected her and said Eli was his little brother, Ernie Tarantino. She still calls him “Ernie”.
Quentin said (paraphrasing here) that David Carradine died in a cool way.
He talked a little about his leg and foot fetish as well.
