Samuel L. Jackson is “not f–king okay” with President Donald Trump.
The outspoken actor criticized Trump and his supporters in an expletive-laden interview with Esquire.
“This motherf–ker is like ruining the planet and all kinds of other crazy s–t,” the Captain Marvel actor said in the recent interview. “And the people think that’s okay. It’s not f–king okay. And if you’re not saying anything, then you’re complicit.”
When asked if he was worried about angering Trump supporters with his comments and frequent Trump bashing on social media, the actor unloaded.
“I know how many motherf–kers hate me. ‘I’m never going to see a Sam Jackson movie again.’ F–k I care? If you never went to another movie I did in my life, I’m not going to lose any money. I already cashed that check,” he said. “F–k you. Burn up my videotapes. I don’t give a f–k.”
Jackson also tore into critics who think actors should stay out of politics and “stick with acting.”
“No, motherf–ker. I’m a human being that feels a certain way,” he said. “And some of this sh-t does affect me, because if we don’t have health care, sh-t, and my relatives get sick, they’re going to call my rich ass. I want them to have health care. I want them to be able to take care of themselves. This is how I feel. And I count to one hundred some days before I hit ‘send,’ because I know how that sh-t is.”
Jackson is considered one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars, with a resume that includes Pulp Fiction, Snakes on a Plane, Django Unchained, and Do the Right Thing, just to name a few.
He’ll next be seen in Shaft, which opens on June 14. The New Line Cinema release is directed by Tim Story with a script from Kenya Barris and Alex Barnow.
