Jackson Offers Shamed Tamahori Support

LATEST: SAMUEL L JACKSON has become the latest celebrity to stand up for shamed movie-maker LEE TAMAHORI, who was arrested for posing as a drag prostitute in Los Angeles last month (JAN06).

The actor worked with the DIE ANOTHER DAY filmmaker on XXX: STATE OF THE UNION and insists the scandal surrounding Tamahori should do nothing to weaken his position as a top director.

Jackson says, "Nobody got hurt and that's the important thing. Guys are guys and people are people.

"If BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN can be the best movie of the year then that means Lee can continue to direct as long as he wants to."
