Jackson's Guilt Over Success
The street fighter-turned-actor, who grew up in Memphis, Tennessee, admits many of his childhood pals have fallen victim to drugs and crime while he has since found fame in the blockbuster hit, replacing Mr. T in the role of B. A. Baracus.
And Jackson can't understand why he didn't share the same fate as his friends.
He tells Britain's The Sun, "I came from the streets. A lot of people I grew up with died or were on drugs or are in prison.
"All my close friends, apart from one or two, are like that. Sometimes I feel guilty or I feel like, 'God, why did you spare me?' I now make a good living and travel the world."
