Quentin Tarantino Spills Everything To Howard Stern In 75 Minute Interview

Quentin Tarantino, beyond being an amazing filmmaker, has a very interesting backstory. Unlike most in Hollywood, who came out of the film school system, the Pulp Fiction director actually quit school in ninth grade and got his movie education working in a rental store. For years and years he watched film after film, all the while learning what makes the greatest titles what they are. But that's only the surface level of Tarantino's history. To go in depth you have to listen to the interview the filmmaker just did with Howard Stern.

The famed director sat down with the famed radio host for 75 minutes recently to talk about Tarantino's upcoming movie Django Unchained, but they really ended up discussing the filmmaker's entire life. In just the first 10 minutes they begin talking about QT's absentee father and how Stern actually had him on the show years before. It's a must listen for all fans and you can hear it below.

And more Tarantino on the silver screen is almost here as well. Django Unchained, starring Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz, Kerry Washington and Samuel L. Jackson, will be in theaters on Christmas Day. In the film tells the story of an escaped slave named Django (Foxx) who teams up with a bounty hunter, Dr. King Schultz (Waltz), to to find and kill the siblings known as The Brittle Brothers. In exchange for Django's help, Dr. Schultz agrees to help his partner rescue his wife (Washington), who is being held captive by the evil plantation owner Calvin Candie (DiCaprio).
