Veteran actor Samuel L Jackson is one of the most celebrated artistes of Hollywood, but he still doesn’t like to be called a “legend”. In his over four-decade-long career, Jackson has featured in more than 150 films, including critically-acclaimed titles such as Do The Right Thing, Goodfellas, Jungle Fever, Patriot Games, True Romance, One Eight Seven, Coach Carter and others. He has collaborated with ace filmmaker Quentin Tarantino on films such as Pulp Fiction (1994), Jackie Brown (1997), Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight (2015). The actor was recently honoured by the SCAD Savannah Film Festival with Legend of Cinema Award. Talking to Entertainment Weekly, Jackson said labels always “disturb” him. “When I see things online, people go ‘legend’. Legends are people who accomplish things that can’t be accomplished by other people, or did something that’s super extraordinary,” the 71-year-old actor said. “I just persevered through hard work and doggedness to get where I am,” he added. For cinema aficionados, Jackson is widely regarded for his turn as Jules Winnfield in Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction.
