(TruthAndLiberty.com) – During a recent interview with Rolling Stone, esteemed actor Samuel L. Jackson shed light on the impact of the 2016 election on his Marvel co-star Brie Larson while they were on the set together. Jackson revealed that Larson was deeply shocked by Donald Trump’s election as president, prompting him to offer her words of encouragement and support. However, his actions sparked a wave of anger among left-wing liberals.
At the time, Jackson voiced his opinion that Trump, who is now a front-runner in the 2024 presidential primary, embodied the same prejudices and derogatory attitudes he had faced throughout his earlier years. Having experienced racial slurs and discrimination firsthand, Jackson believed that Trump’s election resonated deeply with Larson and reminded her of the challenges they both had to overcome.
Renowned for his portrayal of the iconic comic book character Nick Fury in various Marvel movies, Jackson shared the screen with Larson in the highly acclaimed film “Captain Marvel.” Reflecting on their relationship, he disclosed that their friendship blossomed during the filming of “Kong: Skull Island” in 2017, as well as during the production of a different Netflix movie.
It was during their time on the set of “Kong” that Jackson and Larson found common ground, forging a bond that extended beyond their professional collaboration. Interestingly, the filming experience for both actors was not entirely smooth sailing. Larson was actively seeking another actor to join her in the movie “Unicorn Store,” unaware that Jackson had an interest in participating. Surprised by her oversight, Jackson inquired about her decision, prompting Larson to express her assumption that he would not be interested. This exchange sparked a humorous moment between the two, adding to the foundation of their friendship.
In addition to their shared experiences on set, Jackson and Larson discovered a mutual concern and emotional connection over Trump’s election victory. Larson, in particular, was deeply affected by the outcome and found herself disheartened. Recognizing her vulnerability, Jackson stepped in as a pillar of strength, encouraging her not to let others diminish her resolve. His support became a source of inspiration for Larson, motivating her to remain steadfast in her beliefs and aspirations.
Beyond their professional collaboration, Jackson and Larson continue to nurture their friendship. Their shared encounters, both challenging and uplifting, have forged a bond that extends beyond the confines of the movie sets they inhabit. As they navigate the ever-changing landscape of the entertainment industry, Jackson and Larson find solace in their mutual support and camaraderie, serving as a reminder that genuine connections can arise from unexpected places.
