Samuel L. Jackson can't escape Pulp Fiction lines
Samuel L. Jackson assures fans he's still part of the Marvel universe despite not being in Captain America: Civil War.
Samuel L. Jackson still gets asked what a Quarter Pounder with Cheese is called in France.
The infamous line, uttered between Samuel and John Travolta’s Pulp Fiction character’s Jules and Vincent, has become one of the cult quotes from Quentin Tarantino’s 1994 classic movie.
Samuel’s religious gangster also spoke a passage from the Bible in the film, and despite over two decades passing, the 67-year-old actor has to endure people repeating the lines back to him.
“I’ve seen some really, really bizarre tattoos of me on people’s bodies – as Jules, Mace Windu (Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones), or whatever,” he told Britain’s ShortList magazine.
“Everybody thinks they know the Ezekiel speech, or they ask me to do it. At least five times a week somebody asks me if I know what they call a Quarter Pounder with Cheese in France.”
Along with Samuel wannabes, the Oscar-nominated star also has to deal with people constantly wanting selfies with him. He recently fell out with one fan on Twitter after he politely refused a photo, and moans that people only want a snap to post it online.
“You have no anonymity and you lose the ability to just be,” he shrugged. “I go to the supermarket all the time but you lose the ability to be anonymous, so people are going to say things to you or ask you to take photos or do things. Everybody thinks it’s OK to take a photograph with you.”
While Samuel was absent from the recent Marvel flick Captain America: Civil War, he assures fans he’ll be back to his Nick Fury best in the upcoming Avengers flicks.
“I’m in Avengers 3 and 4. So I’m still part of Marvel. I’m still around,” he smiled.
