Switching gears and talking about watching his own movies, Jackson confesses, “I like watching myself in movies…if I am channel surfing and I pass a movie that I’m in, I’m watching it no matter what. I have a drawer of nothing but my DVDs, so if nothing else, I can just go in and pull one out and put it in.”

Addressing other actors who are famous for doing the exact opposite, the 66 year-old actor exclaims, “That’s bullshit! Actors that say, ‘I can’t stand to watch myself’, well if you can’t stand to watch yourself then why the fuck do you expect someone to pay $13.50 to watch you?” Read more on GQ-Magazine.co.uk.
