Chris Pine has revealed this his late grandmother Anne Gwynne makes an appearance in Quentin Tarantino’s hit 2019 movie Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood.

Anne, who died in 2003 at the age of 84, was an actress during the Golden Age of Hollywood, appearing in films like Weird Woman and The House of Frankenstein.

Speaking to J. Claude Deering on his Things Are Going Great For Me podcast, Wonder Woman 1984 star Chris recalled the time he took his mother as his date to a Vanity Fair-hosted Oscars after party one year.

While there, they bumped into Tarantino who, ‘knows everything about my grandmother. He knows film names, co-stars, directors, production designers, just unbelievable. 

‘So [he and my mother] ended up talking for about 40 minutes and I went off and got another martini.’

The star then added of Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood: ‘I call my folks and ask them if they’d seen it. They saw it, loved it, and my mom says, “You know, that scene at the ranch [with Bruce Dern] and there’s a TV on?” I said, “Yeah, I vaguely kind of remember this.”

‘But she said, “On the television is one of my mother’s films.” So, I have yet to get in touch with him, and my mother actually wrote me up an email that I was going to forward to him. Obviously, it’s so sweet of him and I’m assuming that was done on purpose and was kind of a nod. […] My mother was over the moon.’
