No more nude scenes for Samuel L Jackson

2013-11-15 16:00
Los Angeles - Samuel L Jackson won't be doing anymore nude scenes.

The Django Unchained star recently injured his shoulder whilst shooting in Germany for his new film Big Game and he's joked that the injury has ruined his chances of stripping off in any future movies.

Speaking on The Late Show with David Letterman, he quipped: "When I landed on my shoulder the ligaments which hold the clavicle down snapped and my clavicle jumped up ... So yeah all my topless, naked, nude scenes are done now!"

The 64-year-old actor, who has been on a strict vegan diet for the last three months, injured his shoulder after he was thrown out of a helicopter from a staggering height, but he insists he won't let the wound put a stop to his acting career.

He explained: "I was flipped from a height of about seven feet out of a freezer, which is supposedly a helicopter flying through some woods.

"They had a camera on one end of the freezer and I was on the other and the stuntman jumped off the freezer, the camera flipped the freezer and I went flying out of it and landed on my shoulder."

He added: "I love my job, I'm fortunate enough to be sort of in demand and I get to choose some interesting things to do and hopefully that will continue."
