Samuel L. Jackson Mistaken For John Travolta
We once reported on an incident where Samuel L. Jackson had to publicly embarrass a white TV anchor for mistaking him for Laurence Fishburne. Today, he privately embarrassed a drunk partygoer who believed that he was a white man.
According to PageSix, Jackson was attending a “To Kill a Mockingbird” party and talking to his former Pulp Fiction castmate Uma Thurman when a slizzard fan ran up on them being annoying and loud and wrong.
Said a spy, “The opening-night guest who appeared to have had one too many drinks” spotted Thurman and Jackson at the Harvard Club bash, when “the guy started shouting, ‘Do the dance! Do the dance!’ ” at the stars — apparently referring to the famous dance-off between Thurman and John Travolta in the 1994 Quentin Tarantino classic.
How did Sam Jack handle this? Well…
Without missing a beat, Jackson deadpanned to the confused fan, “I think you have me mixed up with someone else.”
But a spy said, “Undeterred, the fan continued trying to goad the pair into dancing, before an onlooker firmly informed him, ‘This is not that kind of party.’ There was no music and no dance floor!”
We don’t EVER wanna drink the liquor that makes us believe that Samuel L. Jackson is John Travolta.
Also, the PageSix article didn’t specify the race of the person who didn’t know the difference between the two men, but c’mon…
