Quentin Tarantino made a vow as a teenager not to share his fortune with his mother and he has stuck to his word.
The Oscar-winning filmmaker is a cult name in cinema, with a large number of accolades under his belt and a place on many most-influential lists.
But in a new interview, Tarantino has revealed his mother never supported his ambitions as a child and he made a promise she would not receive the fruits of his labour.
Speaking with Brian Koppelman on his podcast The Moment, the director said he was regularly in trouble with his teachers who looked at it as a defiant act of rebellion that Im doing this instead of my school work.

While he wrote his first script when he was 12, Tarantino struggled academically in school and his mother had a hard time with his scholastic non-ability.
She was bitching at me about that. and then in the middle of her little tirade, she said, Oh, and by the way, this little writing career, with the finger quotes and everything. This little writing career that youre doing? That s… is over!, Tarantino recalled.
And when she said that to me in that sarcastic way, I was in my head, and I go, OK, lady. When I become a successful writer, you will never see penny one from my success. There will be no house for you. Theres no vacation for you, no Elvis Cadillac for mommy. You get nothing. Because you said that.
When Koppelman asked if Tarantino kept to his word, he confirmed he did not support her financially despite his wealth.
I helped her out with a jam with the IRS. But no house. No Cadillac, no house, the 58-year-old said.
There are consequences for your words as you deal with your children, remember there are consequences for your sarcastic tone about whats meaningful to them.
