Celebrity directors Quentin Tarantino and Eli Roth believe their Nazi killing war epic Inglourious Basterds is helping Jews get laid.

The box office smash earned Pulp Fiction creator Quentin his highest ever opening weekend and rave reviews.

Boston-born Eli plays ‘Bear Jew’ Donnie in the WWII epic and lives out the ultimate Kosher fantasy of spraying Hitler in the face with a machine gun.

Hostel director Eli said he’s been swarmed with Jewish well-wishers including Ben Stiller and Superbad star Jonah Hill since the movie opened saying its helping Jews look cool.

Speaking during a joint interview Quentin forced Eli to dish the dirt.

He said: “You spend a lot of time hob nobbing with Hollywood actors, tell everybody what these Jewish leading men have been saying to you.”

Eli said: “The reaction has been amazing. Ben Stiller and the other Jewish Hollywood fraternity have been coming up to me and saying ‘you made this movie for us.’

“‘Its great – you’re making us look cool.’

“Jonah Hill came up to me and took it further. He said you made the movie we’ve all been wanting to make.’

“Like Eric Bana in Munich – this is really Jews kicking ass.

“People have been saying: ‘You are going to help Jews get laid.’

“Its great. Hey if I can help some nice Jewish boys get some signature on their bat, then I’m all for it.”

Quentin added: “If you’re a nerdy little Jewish guy and you’ve got a pretty little platonic girlfriend.

“If she’s not actually giving it up, but doesn’t mind you paying for her movies…

“When you take her to see Inglourious Basterds… if you can’t get it done that night, then she’s not your friend. Close the deal, alright.”
