SAMUEL L. JACKSON has a new respect for police 'cleaners' after playing one in a new movie.
The Pulp Fiction star always assumed police cleaned up after themselves at bloody crime scenes - but the authorities have a special handyman who tidies up after detectives.
Jackson, who portrays such a character in his new film THE CLEANER, says, "He's the guy who cleans death sites."
But he's still amazed with what the families of the deceased have to put up with after their loved ones are killed.
He adds, "It's still up to the family to clean the house up properly; get the brains off the wall, the blood off the floor and that's something I didn't know. I always thought the police did it."
