Jennifer Aniston made headlines in early November when she declared, “There are no more movie stars.” It’s a statement that Quentin Tarantino agrees with, as evidenced by the director’s recent interview on Podcast “2 bears, 1 cave”. (through Mediation). Tarantino attributed the loss of movie stars to the “wonder of Hollywood.”

“Part of the Marvelization of Hollywood is… you have all these actors who have become famous playing these characters,” Tarantino said. But they’re not movie stars. Right? Captain America is the star. Or Thor is the star. I mean, I’m not the first to say that. I think that’s been said countless times… but it’s like, you know, it’s these franchise characters who become stars.

For Tarantino, Captain America is the star and not Chris Evans. “I honestly don’t even put them down, to tell you the truth,” the director previously said of movie stars who no longer exist in bulk. “But that’s one of the — the legacy of the Marvelization of Hollywood movies.”

Tarantino also clarified in the interview that he doesn’t “hate” Marvel movies, but hates them because it’s the only product Hollywood wants to make these days.

“Look, I collected Marvel comics like crazy when I was a kid,” Tarantino said. “There’s an aspect that if these movies come out when I’m in my twenties, I’d be totally damn happy and totally love them. I mean, they wouldn’t be the only movies that get made. They would include those movies movies are. But you know, I’m almost 60, so yeah. No, I’m not that excited about it.”

“My only ax to grind against them is that they are the only things that seem to be made,” he added. “And they’re the only things that seem to generate any sort of excitement among a fan base or even the studio that makes them. That’s what they’re excited about. And you know, it’s just the fact that they’re the full representation of this movie era right now. There isn’t really much room for anything else. That’s my problem.”

Don’t expect Tarantino to ever get involved in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The director said earlier this month that he won’t be directing a Marvel movie because “you have to be a hired hand to do those things. I’m not a mercenary. I am not looking for a job.”

Tarantino made headlines this month in support of his book “Cinema Speculation,” which is now on sale.
