He is the son of a nurse, Connie McHugh and an amateur actor, Tony Tarantino. Her mother has Irish and Cherokee ancestry and his father is Italian. His parents broke up before his birth. Quentin Tarantino moved with his mother in Torrance, California, when he was two. In high school, he took drama classes. At 15, he dropped out and went to the James Best Theater Company from Toluca Lake. Two years later he dropped out once again and he got a job in a video store, where he paid attention on what kind of movies people liked to rent. He considers this to be defining for his career.
Fans of Quentin Tarantino are also very interested of whom did the famous producer date. He was linked to actress Mira Sorvino and also to Julie Dreyfus, Kathy Griffin and Margaret Choo. Apparently, Quentin Tarantino was involved with directors Allison Anders and Sofia Coppola, too. He stated that Uma Thurman is his muse, but their relationship is strictly platonic. It seems like Quentin Tarantino wants to dedicate himself to the movie making industry until 60, when he plans to retire, in order to write novels and film literature. He says that the only thing that will rush his retirement is the digitalization of movies, thing that he hopes that it will not happen very soon.
