Samuel L. Jackson, LaTanya Jackson Share What “The Piano Lesson” Means To Them | The View

“It takes an actor to be those particular characters,” Jackson said. “And the sign of movie stardom has always been, what, asses in seats? What are we talking about?”


“So, it’s not a big controversy for me to know that, well, apparently, these actors are movie stars,” he added. “Chadwick Boseman is Black Panther. You can’t refute that. And he’s a movie star.”

As The Piano Lesson star stated, if the sign of a real movie star is getting people in the door, then the actors of the MCU have accomplished that. The franchise has a domestic box office gross of $11 billion.

Quentin Tarantino is welcome to his opinion, but maybe he—and other so-called high-brow directors—can just relax and let fans like what they like without shitting all over it.
