Samuel L. Jackson Covers New York Times Magazine
One of my favorite actors, Samuel L. Jackson, covers the latest issue of New York Times Magazine. The cover features an interesting paragraph with titles of films he has appeared in, as well as a very hilarious half head shot.
Inside the issue, the Avengers star speaks on the type of characters he played, being a regular guy, and much more. Take a look at a few excerpts below via Popsessive:
On movie characters he played before Jules in Pulp Fiction:
“Before Jules… my characters were just ‘The Negro’ who died on Page 30. Every script I read, ‘The Negro’ died on Page 30…. After Jules, I became the coolest [expletive] on the planet. Why? I have no clue. I’m not like Jules. It’s called being an actor.”
On going places without bodyguards:
“I walk the streets, take the train, it’s real simple. Some actors create their own mythology.” He assumed a self-pitying voice: “Oh, I’m so famous I can’t go places, because I created this mythology that I’m so famous I can’t go places.”
