Quentin Tarantino has sacrificed marriage and kids for the sake of his filmmaking career.
The director admits he has come close to finding love and commitment - most recently two years ago with an unknown woman - but he doesn't regret letting the relationship fail, insisting it would have killed his career.
Tarantino tells GQ magazine, "I'm not saying that I'll never get married or have a kid before I'm 60. But I've made a choice, so far, to go on this road alone. Because this is my time to make movies.
"If (his recent romance) had happened, I wouldn't have made Inglourious Basterds. Or I wouldn't have made it with the same intensity. And it wouldn't be finished now. "
