10 Things You Didn’t Know About Quentin Tarantino


4. Tarantino dated Sofia Coppola – and there’s a double movie reference to prove it!

At some point between 2002-2004, Quentin Tarantino hooked up with Francis Ford Coppola’s filmmaker daughter Sofia Coppola (The Virgin Suicides), though the two amicably split soon afterwards (Tarantino even voted for her to win at the Golden Lion at The Venice Film Festival in 2010, which she did).

However, there’s a neat little nod to this former relationship that film fans have been eager to point out ever since – both their 2003 movies Kill Bill, Vol 1. and Lost In Translation are set in Japan, and both contain a Japanese character called “Charlie Brown.” Utter coincidence, or a cool reference to the fact they were dating at the time?
