The Actress Who Plays Samuel L. Jackson's Mum In Glass Is Younger Than Him

So let's imagine that you're in the acting biz and you bag yourself the part of portraying the mother of an actor who is, in reality, five years older than you already... would you be worried about your ageing process or impressed with your own sick acting skillz?

Probably the latter, for your own self esteem, right?

If you've had chance to watch the eagerly-anticipated Glass, which was released on Friday, you may not have realised but the actress who plays Samuel L. Jackson's character's mum is actually five years younger than him.

Charlayne Woodard, the actress who plays Mrs Price, is just 65. Her 'son' Elijah Price - or Mr. Glass - is portrayed by Jackson who is 70.

People can't quite get their heads around the revelation.

One very sarcastic know-it-all chirped in: "It gets crazier: She was five years younger than him when she played his mother in UNBREAKABLE, too."

Who would've guessed?!

According to Comicbook, the film is racking for $47million (£36.4m) in its first three days at the box office and is estimated to take in $50m (£38.8m) over the four-day Martin Luther King weekend.

This is pretty good going considering the film's writer-director, M. Night Shyamalan, used his own money to fund the film which is a direct sequel to 2017's Split - which was revealed to be a sequel to 2000's Unbreakable.

Forbes claims the 48-year-old had to use the money he made from two previous films, as well as collateral from his home, to scrape together the $20million (£15.5m) needed to get the movie produced.

Glass sees three of Shyamalan's most iconic characters, Mr Glass (Samuel L. Jackson) David Dunn (Bruce Willis) and the Beast (James McAvoy) living in the same asylum.

The film's synopsis reads: "Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb's superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men."
