Pam Grier Says It Was Actually Samuel L. Jackson's Idea To Sprinkle The N-Word Like Parsley In Quentin Tarantino Films
"And Sam did say it in articles, but people don’t read. They don’t read everything. They’re too quick to say," Grier said.

Sitting down for an interview with SiriusXM on Thursday, actress Pam Grier said Samuel L. Jackson often ad-libbed the N-word when he starred in Quentin Tarantino’s films. Grier, who starred in Tarantino’s 1997 film Jackie Brown, said the director was often caught off guard when Jackson used the N-word.
“That was Sam’s acting craft doing it,” Grier told host Bevy Smith on SiriusXM. “So — and people brought that up. And Quentin says, ‘I don’t know why they do it. I didn’t do it.’ And Sam said, ‘No, I did it. I said it.’”
