He’s one of the most acclaimed directors and writers in Hollywood.
And while Quentin Tarantino has never shied away from showing his support for his favourite films, he’s now revealed he’s a fan of the beloved British children’s series Peppa Pig.
The Kill Bill frontman, 59, described the show as ‘the greatest British import of our decade,’ while also revealing he watches it with his two-year-old son Leo.

Speaking to Empire, Quentin revealed he regularly watches cartoons with his son, and the first film he ever showed him was Despicable Me.
He said the animation was ‘a more consuming experience than, say, Peppa Pig’.
Quentin then added: ‘I actually do like Peppa Pig. I watch it a lot. I’ll say it — Peppa Pig is the greatest British import of this decade.’

Peppa Pig was first broadcast in the UK in 2004, and focuses on the young piglet, her brother George and their parents, Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig.
It comes after Tarantino welcomed his second child with his wife Daniella Pick, 38, a daughter, whose name is yet to be revealed.
The filmmaker and singer welcomed their daughter on July 2, the couple confirmed to People.

‘Daniella and Quentin Tarantino are happy to announce that Daniella gave birth to their baby girl on July 2, 2022, a little sister to Leo, their first child,’ the couple said in a statement.
Tarantino and his wife confirmed they were expecting their second child in February, with their first child Leo born in February 2020.
They happy couple first met in 2009 when the filmmaker was in Pick’s native Israel, while promoting his film Inglourious Basterds.
They tied the knot in November 2018 in their Beverly Hills home, with their son Leo born in Israel, with the couple splitting time between L.A. and Israel.
The filmmaker had previously hinted that he would retire after his 10th film, which would be the next film he makes, though it’s still unclear what that might be.

Tarantino was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Rome Film Festival in October, where he admitted he has, ‘no idea’ what his 10th film will be.
When asked if he could make a sequel to Kill Bill that he had previously hinted about, the director coyly said, ‘Why not?’
The filmmaker also explained that he is keen to delve into comedy as he described an unspecified Spaghetti Western project that he is planning.
However Tarantino, who was given his award by Italian filmmaker Dario Argento, suggested that the western might not be a film.
He said: ‘It’s not like my next movie. It’s a piece of something else that I’m thinking about doing – and I’m not going to describe what it is. But part of this thing, there is supposed to be a Spaghetti Western in it.’
