Fascinating phone Conversation Between Weinstein and Tarantino after a DeNiro Flip out

by Joey Paur

A 11 year old phone conversation recently leaked between Quentin Tarantino and Harvey Weinstein regarding Robert DeNiro. Apparently DeNiro thought he should be getting paid more money for starring in Tarantino's 'Jackie Brown'.

Weinstein warns Tarantino that he may get a midnight call from DeNiro and Quentin says:

"Tell Bob not to call me yelling and screaming because I don't know if I'm going to be nice [if] the guy calls up yelling and screaming at me like a maniac, calling me a [beep]er!"

Weinstein also goes on to say:

“He thinks he’s going to make John Travolta look like that was an amateur night in Dixie... This is a great actor and actually a great guy, who’s going through a difficult time. I think he’s really having like a scratching-his-head session, you know, with his own life and his own career.

I just find this conversation fascinating because you get a chance to listen to these big time Hollywood players deal with a real situation that seems like it should be in a movie. Stuff like this happens all the time but this time you get to listen in.
