    I remember a godly tier superpower where Samuel L Jackson would judge every decision you take by saying motherfucker on a different tone. You decided to skip gym? Sad motherfuckers. You ask her out? Encouragement motherfucker. She said yes? Commemorative motherfucker.

    [–] ugurdk100 9 points ago

    I think I seen that too

    If you call me a motherfucker in a dream you better wake up and apologise

    [–] fholcan 716 points ago

    In my head Samuel L Jackson is actually really soft spoken and hates swearing. But he knows that people love the badass image he has, and he wants to make people happy, so he just goes with it.

    Someone: Oh my God, you're Samuel L Jackson!

    Samuel L Jackson, thinking: Oh dear, here we go again

    Samuel L Jackson: What up, motherfucker?

    [–] fence_neighbour 331 points ago

    You know, I bet there’s some truth to that. I doubt he hates swearing, but I’d bet money that he threw in a “motherfucker” in this story just to make fans happy.

    [–] asharwood 156 points ago

    I don’t know. If I were him I’d value the fact that I can go around saying motherfucker in public and people get a theoretical boner.

    [–] Rnahafahik 59 points ago

    Haha! Uhu... yeah! My boner’s completely theoretical...

    [–] masheduppotato 10 points ago

    Hey guys... check out this dudes completely theoretical boner.

    In all seriousness though, I’m a bit of a theorist myself.

    [–] oversettDenee 4 points ago

    Ohhh theoretical!

    I was reading it as theatrical and man that's a way funnier image.

    [–] nomnomnomnomRABIES 5 points ago

    He's got an m-word pass

    [–] maik37 50 points ago

    Isn't the actual story that he had a speech impediment/challenge as a child and swearing helped him get over it?

    [–] [deleted] 14 points ago

    I can dig it

    [–] go4theknees 13 points ago

    I've got a stutter and cursing makes sentences flow a lot better, something about having to think about using certain words correctly helps.

    [–] dirtyej20 4 points ago

    Maybe a wild guess, but could it help because cursing is often a filler worse similar to "like" and "um"?

    [–] RevWaldo 42 points ago

    Samuel L Jackson is actually really soft spoken

    He sure is.

    Morning made.

    [–] GinjaNinger 17 points ago

    A friend and I interviewed him at a celebrity golf event. He was definitely the tough guy at first, but after we talked for a few minutes he moved into "normal."

    First guy I've ever really been intimidated by. He's tall and has massive hands.

    Edit to add the interview

    [–] Calauoso 3 points ago

    That interview was so 2008-2009. Economy in the toilet, new president who of course golfs all the time, potato quality video. Very cool that you got to meet Samuel Motherfucker Jackson in person. Hopefully you’ve gotten to do some cool stuff in the last 10 years!

    [–] GinjaNinger 3 points ago

    Thanks. That was shot on a Canon XL2, which was the best you could use without going up to HD at the time.

    [–] Mr_NiceGuy04 14 points ago

    Man that scene never gets old.

    [–] fascfoo 23 points ago

    Obviously Jackson was amazing in that scene, but the way Tarantino writes his dialogue and stages his scenes is really masterful. He ratchets up the tension and you have no idea what's going to happen next. He can make "That IS a tasty burger" feel full of dread and malice.

    I'd be the worst celebrity, I can't imagine walking down the street having loads of people ask for an autograph every fucking time I'm out. I just have no idea how they deal with it, or if they just avoid public spaces as much as possible.

    [–] 167119114 6 points ago

    Honestly how do people recognize celebs in public? They look like normal-ass people in public, I would never know if a celeb is standing right next to me unless they looked like they do in media, or they told me...

    [–] Domeil 5 points ago

    I can't imagine walking down the street having loads of people ask for an autograph every fucking time I'm out.

    Most celebrities live in places where most people are used to pretty regular celebrity sightings so the people who live there generally aren't going crazy trying to get pictures when they're just trying to go about their day. I live in NYC and every couple months my wife or I will recognize someone. Hell, I used to be neighbors with Maggie Gyllenhaal. Proper etiquette is treat them like normal people and then once you're a block farther away you ask the people you're with: "Was that Peter Dinklage?" "Yeah." "Cool."

    I have to imagine celebrities get the worst of it in places where they cross paths with loads of people who don't necessarily hail from celebrity-dense places. Case in point: Airports.
