Samuel L. Jackson Fears for the Future of the Planet after ‘Kong: Skull Island’ Shoot


Samuel L. Jackson is trying to convince his wife to go solar after becoming more “plant friendly” while filming Kong: Skull Island.

The Pulp Fiction star shot scenes with castmates Brie Larson and Tom Hiddleston in the forests and jungles of Vietnam, Australia, and Hawaii and admits the experience made him think long and hard about the future of the planet.

He says, “I tried to talk my wife into solar panels years ago but she wouldn’t do it. She said something about messing with the yard and it didn’t look good in the yard. I believe all those things, but hopefully we can continue the battle to save our rainforests, to keep the places where those indigenous people live and their way of life sustainable.

“I hope we can find a way to keep the planet viable for my grandkids, great-grandkids to come. It doesn’t look like that’s gonna happen, so we might have to find some place else to be.”
