Quentin Tarantino was thrilled to discover he had a fan in the wife of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair. Cherie Blair requested an audience with the Reservoir Dogs director earlier this month (Sep07) and sent her bodyguards to invite him for a chat during his stay at a Liverpool, England, hotel. Tarantino says, "The secret service guy was like, 'Cherie Blair would like to meet you'. "So I went out and we started talking. She was telling me she was from Liverpool. Then she said, 'Can we get a picture, do you want to go to my room? We took a picture and everything and then we took a picture with all of her lads. "Obviously Cherie liked my work. And so it's like 'hello!'... it was a real thrill."
