Chris Tucker regrets uttering the 'n' word so many times in Quentin Tarantino's 1997 movie Jackie Brown and insists he would turn the part down now.

The 34-year-old actor shares a profanity-filled scene with Samuel L. Jackson in the film, which upon its release attracted strong criticism from black filmmaker Spike Lee for its racist language.

Tucker tells Playboy magazine, "Back then I wasn't even thinking that much about how words like that affect people. But I do now.

"I wouldn't do it (make Jackie Brown now). I don't know how old I was then, but I'm a different person now. Hopefully, we evolve as we get older. Hopefully, we better ourselves.

"No, I wouldn't do that dialogue now."
