Samuel L. Jackson
's attempts to quit smoking on the set of new movie Resurrecting The Champ fell flat - because his homeless character constantly puffs away on cigarette butts.
The Black Snake Moan
star admits he chose the wrong time to end his nasty habit - and had to eventually spend a fortune on a method used by a New York doctor who helped TV personality Judge Judy quit.
He says, "I was trying to quit smoking and it wasn't working. One thing you can't do is smoke when you're trying to quit, even if you're playing a character that theoretically smokes cigarette butts."
