Quentin Tarantino and Lianne “Spiderbaby” MacDougall, 21-Year Age Difference

Sugar Daddy Quentin Tarantino and Lianne “Spiderbaby” MacDougall

Sugar Daddy Quentin Tarantino and Lianne “Spiderbaby” MacDougallQuentin Taran­tino spent much of his teenage years work­ing at a local video rental shop in Man­hat­tan Beach. It was here that he first met writer and pro­ducer Roger Avary, whom Taran­tino would later go on to col­lab­o­rate with on sev­eral screenplays.

Tarantino’s first fea­ture film was the 1992 crime thriller Reser­voir Dogs, which depicted the events lead­ing up to a dia­mond heist, and what hap­pens after it goes hor­ri­bly wrong. Despite receiv­ing crit­i­cism for the dis­turb­ing vio­lence and strong lan­guage in it, the film is still deemed to be one of the most sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions to inde­pen­dent cin­ema, and it turned Taran­tino into an overnight celebrity. Today, his films are often char­ac­ter­ized by a non­lin­ear sto­ry­telling style, unique plots, and graphic violence.

After Reser­voir Dogs, Taran­tino went on to direct Pulp Fic­tion in 1994, which became the first inde­pen­dent film to earn over $108 mil­lion in box office sales. He fol­lowed that up with the incred­i­bly pop­u­lar Kill Bill series. Tarantino’s two most recent films, Inglo­ri­ous Bas­terds (2009) and Django Unchained (2012) each took home an Acad­emy Award.

Taran­tino has never been mar­ried, although he’s been roman­ti­cally linked to sev­eral women in Hol­ly­wood, and has never been shy about his sex­ual escapades. In a 2009 inter­view with Elle mag­a­zine, he revealed that he once had a three­some with a girl­friend and her best friend, and that he remem­bered think­ing at the time that he would’ve moved them both into his house if it were an option.

Some of Tarantino’s famous ex-girlfriends include actresses Mira Sorvino and Julie Drey­fus, as well as direc­tors Alli­son Anders and Sofia Cop­pola. In true bach­e­lor style, he also dated younger women, like Israeli singer Daniela Pick, who was 21 years younger than him.

Tarantino’s most recent rela­tion­ship is, once again, with a younger woman. He’s dat­ing film jour­nal­ist Lianne Mac­Dougall, who is bet­ter known by her pen name, Spi­derbaby. Mac­Dougall revealed that they met because of her upcom­ing book, for which Taran­tino wrote the fore­word. The celebrity cou­ple first went pub­lic with their May-December rela­tion­ship in Decem­ber 2012, and was spot­ted vaca­tion­ing in Mex­ico together the fol­low­ing month.

In July 2013, Mac­Dougall was caught pla­gia­riz­ing sev­eral of her online film reviews, and although she admit­ted to doing it, her famous direc­tor boyfriend made no pub­lic com­ment about the incident.

What do you think: Will Quentin Taran­tino and Lianne Spi­derbaby make it through this rough patch, or will he just move on to some­one new?

    I think they broke up! Quentin was hold­ing hands with another girl at the city of bones pre­miere and also took the actress from inglo­ri­ous bas­tards to his huge award cer­e­mony in Oct. Even though no sources have men­tioned their rela­tion­ship sta­tus since this occurred. I’m pretty sure they would have been together pub­licly if they were still dat­ing. It’s kind of sad this girl had the world and seemed to lose it just as quick as she gained it. That being said, she stole from a lot of hard work­ing (not paid) writ­ers and got paid for their efforts and passed them off as her own. Karma sucks!
