Samuel L. Jackson Reveals Tips on Becoming a Great Actor
Samuel L. Jackson reveals his addiction to acting, creating character biographies and dealing with Hollywood talent agents.
Samuel L. Jackson has worked on over 100 movies, and is Hollywood’s most celebrated actors in the industry. But, behind working on so many movies and becoming one of America’s most recognizable faces, Samuel L. Jackson is a hard worker who has no time for small talk, well according to a recent interview with the Guardian.
In a recent interview with Megan Conner, Samuel L. Jackson is not like what you expect. On Twitter, Samuel L. Jackson loves exclamation points and catch phrases and even his wife points out that Jackson is “emotionally disconnected” when he is working on set.
Oh, he’s a funny fish, Samuel L. And I wouldn’t be the first person to say it. His partner of 40 years, the actor LaTanya Richardson, once said that the problem with her husband is that he is “emotionally disconnected”. Onscreen he is celebrated for his warmth and wit. But when he is away filming, he apparently can’t even bring himself to say he misses his wife over the phone. Richardson has confessed that at times in their marriage she has felt “abandoned” by him.
When I ask him about his lack of affection, Jackson nods. “I have very brief phone conversations. ‘Oh, I miss you!’” he imitates. “No,” he shakes his head. “[We don’t do] that. She’ll say: ‘Oh, I miss you’ and I’ll go: ‘Oh, OK.’’
