Quentin Tarantino

There was a time, about five years ago when I did have baby fever. I really wanted to have a child. Now I still want to be a father but I don't have baby fever. Right now, I want the work to be the most important thing.

Quentin Tarantino's films make him feel "naked".

The 'Inglourious Basterds' director gets nervous when people watch his movies because the scripts are always "extremely personal".

He said: "If you know me and you read my scripts, I'm rather revealed. In fact, I'm very naked. All my movies are extremely personal."

Quentin, 46, is renowned for his ultra-violent films, but denies his blood-lust stems from an unhappy childhood.

He explained: "I didn't think my childhood was happy at the time but I think it was. The fact that I've always returned to a lot of things that I loved in my childhood for inspiration means that I was probably quite invigorated during that time."

Looking to the future, Quentin is planning both a baby and retirement in the next 15 years - even though he is currently single.

He said: "I will retire from films when I turn 60. It's a good age to stop making movies. I could start writing novels and film criticism and become a man of letter. And then I could finally have a family.

"There was a time, about five years ago when I did have baby fever. I really wanted to have a child. Now I still want to be a father but I don't have baby fever. Right now, I want the work to be the most important thing."
