Last week, we reported that writer/director Quentin Tarantino spent some time on "The Moment" podcast with Brian Koppelman talking about his mother.

He told a story about his mom scolding him about writing and suggesting he give up his writing career. He said that as a kid he basically swore revenge.

"I go, 'Okay, lady, when I become a successful writer, you will never see one penny from my success. There will be no house for you. There's no vacation for you, no Elvis Cadillac for mommy. You get nothing. Because you said that.'"

Well, USA Today tracked down Tarantino's mother, Connie Zastoupil.

She's heard the story and the clips, and this is what she had to say: “Regarding my son Quentin—I support him, I’m proud of him and love him and his growing new family. It gave me great joy to dance at his wedding and receive his news upon the birth of my Grandson Leo.” 

As reported by USA Today, Zastoupil said these are the types of comments that can go viral without context, and quote her as saying she doesn't want "to participate in this salacious transactional media frenzy.”

That's pretty clear. Let us know what you think in the comments.
