Quentin Tarantino says his mom dated Wilt Chamberlain

Wilt-Chamberlain-LakersWorld famous writer and director Quentin Tarantino appeared on NPR’s “Fresh Air” earlier this week to discuss the opening of his new movie, “Django Unchained.” The film, which stars Jamie Foxx and Leonardo DiCaprio, follows the journey of a slave-turned-bounty hunter who is out to rescue his wife from a Mississippi planation owner.

In talking about the movie, Tarantino got into how African-American culture was a part of his life growing up. In fact, he claimed his mother dated Wilt Chamberlain in the 1970s.

“Black culture is my culture growing up,” Tarantino explained. “Yeah, it was almost like a sitcom the way we lived in the ’70s. She was in her 20s, she was hot, alright, she was a hot white girl and her best friend named Jackie was a hot black girl and her other best friend, Lillian, was a hot Mexican girl. And they lived in this swinging singles apartment with me.

“It was the ’70s. I lived with these three hip single ladies, all always going out on dates all the time, dating football players and basketball players … my mom dated Wilt Chamberlain. She was one of the thousand.”

The entire audio is available here. The host then asked Tarantino if it affected his sense of sexuality, knowing that his mother and her friends were engaging in sexual activity basically right under his nose. Unsurprisingly, Tarantino said he was perfectly cool with it and that it was fun always having the boyfriends try to win him over by buying him footballs and taking him places.

If it were any pro basketball player other than Wilt, it may come as a surprise that a famous director’s mother dated him. With how many women Chamberlain has allegedly been with, interesting tales of his sexual endeavors are not tough to come by. After all, let’s not forget what Kobe Bryant said about Wilt’s skills.

    Quentin Tariento’s mom did not date the legend Wilt, it was just her turn among the 20k

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_SJDBBV7ZLQ25SQCN2FX273EKAA George

    and we all know what “dated” really means, don’t we?

    Why didn’t you just come out and say the Stilt f%^#! your mother?

    “I can say “n#g63r” in my films all I want – my mommy blew Wilt Chamberlain!!”
    You’re beginning to look like a clown, or worse, a wigger, qt.  Make movies and put a sock in it.

    By dating you mean she F’d him

    Who cares.  Jerk.  Hollywood moron.  Your movies are trash.  Go watch ‘Gone With The Wind’ and learn something.  The South was right.  BUT… you featured Dick Dale in ‘Pulp Fiction’, so you have a second chance.  Do you have enough money to be 1%?  Hope so.

    20,000 women , if he spent one hour with each then , he would have spent 2 years and 3 months just making whoppee . One of the many stories indicate that it would be more like three hours  each , did QT know his dad ?

    The crazy transparent text background of this site is brutal on my eyes… It even looks like Lorem Ipsum, so it is dummy text giving me a headache..

    Being a number is not a dating.  I know several women who claimed to date Wilt.  They were hot women back in the 70’s, but they were just numbers to Wilt.  Tarantino should have kept this to himself.

  • jetch

    so him mom was a groupie (at best) and that made him part of the “black culture”?? wow! and people buy this?

    i seriously doubt any professional athlete was trying to win him over, while they were eff’en him mom. that would imply they were looking for a relationship.  this guy sounds like an idiot!

  • Doug Skaggs

    i like many of his movies… Jackie Brown & Reservoir Dawgs & Pulp Fiction are some of the best ever from any director. but QT said “his mom was hot”. doubtful seeing how freaking ugly HIS mug is.

    You think that’s how all black people were like Mindless Livestock at Master’s Beacon call in Gone With the Wind that wasn’t historic YOU IDIOT.

    Both Movies are ENTERTAINMENT…….Read about NAT TURNER and then speak or read the Book roots much more intense than the 70’s tv movie.

    Who cares? But in the 70’s everybody would. I shot Wilt playing volleyball with a bunch of kids at the Santa Monica Pier.  I know I was impressed.

  • rdc1974

    Sorry Tarantino your Mom got a turn just like thousands of others. Wilt Chamberlain did’nt date he got his f^ck on!

  • beta1450

    his mammy was a white trash ho who had sex with some immoral 7 foot freak of nature.

  • slayerwulfe

    i agree with the comments his mom was a whore but he ‘s allowed to pimp her memory for his own career,mom would understand and be as proud of her son as she is of herself.

  • chslwl1

    What an idiot; guy must have hated his mom and wanted the world to know that she was a slut.

  • jsteven1

    How can anybody brag of how his Mom made out with a black man?Is he using this as a stepping stone for his career?Its sick.But then today when everything goes,white woman think its ok,and they wear black men like trophies and have mandingo kids that grow up not knowing what they are.They look white but big lips and kinkie hair makes them look black,so they are confused.They see their Mom,white and wonder how their dad looks because he is out of the picture already,looking for another stupid broad to breed again.

  • Momowonthis

    Thank you for summing up the black man in a paragraph…  Great job Steve… 

  • Why_So_Negative

    The people in this country are filled wth so much hate it is sickening.  All blogs sections sound the same regardless of the forum (i.e. political, sport, entertainment)….  A bunch of angry miserable individuals spewing hate and negativity.  You all need to look inside and ask yourself why you feel the need to spew such hate…. BTW Mr. Tarantino is not reading your post nor would he care if he did….. you are nobodys.

  • catlady12

    Its nothing to brag about especially since she is white, these people just use the women that are stupid enough to let them. 

  • beta1450

    spoken like a true cuckold.

  • beta1450

    ask lowery why he spewed hate in saying all white people are going to hell.

     It’s a movie. Stop feeling so personally offended. No one called you the N word.

    Dated is not really the correct term for what Wilt did to your mama.

  • http://www.facebook.com/steve.ortega.142 Steve Ortega

    Why does the truth hurt?Look around you at how many half-breed kids there is.I don”t have anything against dating but don”t bring half-breeds into this world because they will grow up with a chip on their shoulder,everytime they look at a mirror.

    The south was right….and they/you lost and are still in that position….nothing will change that….that must suck to know that your side is the losing one….forever…..within 1,000 years your kind will be so endangered that we will actually come to forgive your people for being so stupid and dragging the race down with your inability to evolve….

    Steve I can tell by reading your comments that you probably have never left American soil. Anyway, I wish you alot of luck in life….. you are going to need it with such a close minded personality. BTW there are no pure blooded anything on this planet…. Yes not even you. Research your family tree I GUARANTEE you are mixed race!!!

    OPEN YOUR EYES and stop judging people. One day you may be on the end of a judgement you dont deserve. Only then will you see the errors of your ways. Good luck in life.

    Things Wilt told his women at the end of the date for $200, Alex…

  • ex_lax_warrior

    Sounds like you have a chip on your shoulder for being a half breed of half human and half Tijuana donkey.

    I always figured something was up with Tarantino’s movies the way they portray the racial and sexual degeneracy. This guy is a self-loather like crazy.

    I’ve taken 2 DNA ancestry texts. I am not mixed race and branches of my family have been here since at least 1650. Take your PC and stick it where the sun doesn’t shine, sunshine.

    That’s not what the Bible says. Refer to Romans 2:1-3.

  • http://twitter.com/Weelittlefishy Hyphenated American

    Biracial children are more prone to behavior difficulties due to conflicting identities. They’re also more prone to having drug abuse problems and also transplantation problems because their mixed DNA doesn’t fit easily.

    Also, if you go to the US Census website, they have a study called ‘Interracial Marriage and Marital Instability’ which shows such unions have a 75% divorce rate.

    These are such things that no amount of moral self-righteous nonsense from the liberal likes on this comment section can overcome. Truth hurts, and pointing it out is not “hate.”

  • http://twitter.com/Weelittlefishy Hyphenated American

    More original argumentation and less parroting liberal platitudes.

    Statiscally speaking, 50% of blacks have herpes, and they have 20.5x the rate of gonorrhea of whites, and 9x the rate of both syphilis and chlamydia. They are only 13% of the US population and commit over 50% of all murders and 90% of acts of interracial violent crime. They also are 50% of US AIDS cases.

    I won’t even bother getting into the average 15 point lower IQ score they have consistently had for many decades with many IQ tests, including the Sanford-Binet which has been thoroughly vetted for bias.

    You get the idea.

    So you’re attacking a “racist” by making racist comments? Yep – You’re definitely a lib.

    You’re right – in this piece he basically played his wigger card to show his ghetto stripes.

    I could say the same about your mother.
