4. Quentin Tarantino and his inspiration


Interestingly, Tarantino has never been married. His status can probably be explained by the fact that the director gets inspiration from loneliness or fleeting love affairs. There was a time when his muse was Uma Thurman. However, the director denied rumors about their love affair assuring that it was only a platonic connection.

I do not claim that I will never get married or will never have children until I am 60. However, so far I have made this choice and will go along my way since this is my time to make films.

5. Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw


The actress became the second wife of the famous director. The couple got married in 1991, and they raise six children (three of them adopted one). Besides, Stephen has one more son from his first marriage. The father of so many children! He probably gets inspiration from his children. Maybe this is why he continues to shoot beautiful films even in his 70s.

6. Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas


Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas have been married since 1997. They both inspire each other. Emma is always the producer of Christopher's films. The couple raise four children. A great family indeed!
