Samuel L. Jackson has no plans to step behind the camera and become a filmmaker - because he enjoys doing very little work for a lot of money.
The Pulp Fiction star, 62, has appeared in over 100 film and TV projects and he has even tried his hand as a producer, but Jackson admits he's reluctant to give up his relaxed filming schedule to become a director.
During an appearance on U.S. daytime show The Talk on Tuesday (13Dec11), he said, "Out of a 16-hour day average, an actor works an hour-and-a-half. The rest of the time I'm in my trailer. The director's always on set, always setting up the next shot...
"I like (reality show) Judge Judy. I hang out in my trailer, I watch Judge Judy, I watch a movie, I read a book, I listen to music, I eat a sandwich. How many jobs do you have that pay that well that you can actually go to work and go to sleep, and they ask and go, 'Where's Sam?' 'He's sleeping'. 'Oh great'. Awesome!"
