Quentin Tarantino Digs Matthew McConaughey’s Rom-Com Past


Quentin Tarantino talked about his love for rom-coms in a recent interview, and Matthew McConaughey got top marks.

Quentin Tarantino has a new movie on the horizon, and he’s been out doing interview to promote it. It’s not too often the director is the one doing Talk Shows, but Tarantino is a unique case. The man is a social animal, and stands fully behind his work. His new movie, The Hateful Eight, is also a special case because of its incredible 70mm run.

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert recently welcomed Quentin Tarantino, and the pair had quite a good time. The big news, however, came in the form of a confession form Tarantino in which he professed his love for the romantic comedy genre. Specifically, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, starring Matthew McConaughey. You can watch a clip of the exchange below:

Quentin Tarantino is famous within the True Detective community for speaking poorly of True Detective while admitting that he never actually watched any of it. At least he and Matthew McConaughey can connect based on the former’s romantic comedy past, if not his critically lauded role as Rust Cohle in True Detective’s first season.

It’s not all that surprising to hear that Quentin Tarantino is a fan of romantic comedies, if only because the man is a film obsessive. It doesn’t feel like there is any genre of film that exists that Tarantino would refuse to experience at least once. He also makes for a fun interview, and his love for movies comes through every time.

That doesn’t mean that he shouldn’t at least watch the first episode of True Detective.
