In the October issue of Playboy, outspoken Samuel L. Jackson talks about his frustration with President Barack Obama, and the overuse of the “N” word.
The actor said, “These 20-somethings can’t turn around and tell me the word nigger is f**ked-up in ‘Django’ yet still listen to Jay-Z or whoever else say ‘nigger, nigger, nigger’ throughout the music they listen to. You can’t have it one way and not the other. Saying Tarantino said ‘nigger’ too many times is like complaining they said ‘kike’ too many times in a movie about Nazis.”
“Robocop” stars Samuel L. Jackson and Abbie Cornish hit the red carpet at Comic-Con 2013, and chatted with “Extra’s” Ben Lyons about the remake, how realistic the story is and why the superhuman cyborg movie makes Abbie so nostalgic. (Hint: she saw it for the first time when she was only 5!)

Brains, beauty and now box office bragging rights -- Emma Watson has it all!
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Watson, 19, is the highest-grossing actress of the decade.
Watson's role as Hermione Granger in six "Harry Potter" films helped her rake in $5.4 billion at the box office, or roughly $900 million per film. The actress' co-star, Dame Maggie Smith, who plays Hogwarts teacher Minerva McGonagall in the films, followed as the second top-earner of the decade.
Guinness names Samuel L. Jackson as the highest-grossing male actor of the decade -- thanks in large part to the "Star Wars" films -- but Entertainment Weekly insists that Jackson, 61, was beat out by Orlando Bloom.
Bloom's roles in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy and "Pirates of the Caribbean" films earned a whopping $6.5 billion in global ticket sales.
Watson, currently an Ivy League student at Brown University, will appear in the two "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows" films, out in 2010 and 2011.
