Samuel L\. Jackson joked about learning his 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' lines with one hand covering his eye.

The 65-year-old actor plays S.H.I.E.L.D director Nick Fury, who wears an eye patch over his left eye in the superhero film, and admitted he had difficulty adjusting his sight to read the script when he was in costume.

Talking at the film's press conference at London's Dorchester Hotel yesterday (20.03.14), he told BANG Showbiz: ''I've learned to turn my head further, actually. The interesting thing about the patch, that I didn't discover until Captain America, the first one - coz I never had never many lines to say - was when I all of a sudden had dialogue and I would learn it the night before, when I got to work I could only see half the page when I put the patch on. So, I have discovered I have to learn my lines now with one hand covering my eye so my mind will absorb what's going on in there. ''

Jackson also hailed army soldiers, who he views as society's real life heroes, since they risk their lives for the benefit of others.

He added: ''The young people who put their lives on the line for us, so that we do have the freedom to make movies like this and tell stories like this, because we do have a volunteer army now, it's not like people have to do it. Those young men and women who go out there, put their lives on the line, and go to different countries. They make sure we can do what we do I admire them greatly.''
