Samuel L. Jackson gave paparazzi the verbal smackdown following a visit to Owen Wilson at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center beating in Los Angeles on Monday. Owen is currently under ‘observation’ following a confirmed suicide attempt on Sunday reportedly sparked by the comic’s breakup with married actress Kate Hudson.
Samuel L says that the press should allow Wilson to focus on his recovery.
“I came here to visit Owen Wilson, get the fuck away from me, alright,” he said to waiting photograhers, sporting haggard shorts, a t-shirt, and a fishing cap.
“Yeah, everybody’s sorry, why the fuck are you guys here?” he said.
When the cameramen said they were “there for the story”, Jackson mockingly added “what story is that?”
