Samuel L. Jackson enjoys normal

Samuel L. Jackson lives his life just like a normal person.

The 67-year-old actor maybe one of the highest paid stars in Hollywood but he doesn't bother having assistants or any sort of entourage and he's happy to go out and mingle with the public anywhere in the world.

During an interview with The Times newspaper conducted in London, he said: "Yeah, I walk the streets here. I walk the streets of London by myself. I do my own grocery shopping, I don't have bodyguards, I make strange turns off of certain streets to just find s**t to look at or see if I can discover something or find something that I wanted to buy that's odd or unusual. And nobody's out there trying to kill me. Nobody has run up on me with a knife or gun."

Jackson can currently be seen Quentin Tarantino's critically acclaimed new western 'The Hateful Eight'.

And while he says he doesn't get much hassle from fans when he's out and about in London or Los Angeles, the 'Pulp Fiction' star does often unexpectedly meet other actors, and his favourite impromptu meeting was with late Hollywood icon Gregory Peck - who died in 2003 aged 87.

He said: "I was walking by a door one day (at a studio) and somebody said 'Samuel?' When I walked in the room it was Gregory Peck. I was like, 'You know who I am?' He's like, 'Of course I do.' "
