NEW YORK (AP) — Samuel Jackson says he enjoys watching his own movies, and he thinks other actors should, too.

Jackson says stars who say they can't watch themselves on screen should get another job. Not watching their own performances, Jackson says, is unfair to audiences.

Jackson stars in the upcoming action-comedy "The Hitman's Bodyguard" alongside Ryan Reynolds. The 68-year-old knows something about what works on screen. He's estimated to be the highest grossing box-office star, with nearly $5 billion in ticket sales over his career.

Jackson also recounted his experience playing golf with President Donald Trump years ago. Jackson says golfers are supposed to police themselves on the links, but Trump "didn't really police himself very well out there."
