Christoph Waltz - Christoph Waltz didn't believe Tarantino rumours

Christoph Waltz didn't believe what he read about Quentin Tarantino.

The actor - who has teamed with the director for a second time on Oscar-nominated film 'Django Unchained' following the hit 2009 film 'Inglourious Basterds' - reveals he chose not to believe rumours about the filmmaker being difficult to work with and relished the opportunity to get to know him.

He explained to The Huffington Post UK: ''I didn't have any preconceptions because I don't believe what I can read. I know it's media. For example, I don't read actors' interviews because I know what happens to actors' interviews - and there's no way in hell the interview would actually come across the same way it was being [written].

''I don't believe what you hear about Quentin being crazy and quirky. I want to see it for myself and sure enough, I saw something completely different and I liked what I saw infinitely better than what I could have read.''

The 56-year-old star - who recently won a Golden Globe for his role as bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz in the spaghetti western about a freed slave (Jamie Foxx) on a mission to rescue his wife - added that he didn't feel burdened with making the film entertaining, instead relying on Quentin's script.

He said: ''With Quentin, it's his thing. The burden on me, or my job rather because it's not a burden, is to make what Quentin wrote happen [on screen]. The writer writes and the actor acts. I didn't come up with that, I didn't create that, I didn't make that funny. He wrote it that way. I just tried to do it justice.''
