Samuel L. Jackson's wife LaTanya flashes bright smile in pic with Beyoncé's mom Tina Lawson
La Tanya Richardson Jackson celebrates Tina Lawson's birthday with a sweet photo of the two of them. It wasn't too long ago when she also celebrated her husband of 38 years, Samuel L. Jackson with an epic 70th birthday party.
La Tanya Richardson Jackson, also known as Samuel L. Jackson’s wife paid tribute to her friend Tina Knowles Lawson who celebrated her birthday recently.
In a photo she shared on Instagram, she beamed alongside Beyonce’s mother who doesn’t look anything like her 65-year age at all. She greeted her in her caption by writing,
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY FAMILY."
La Tanya and Tina have been friends for quite a while. In fact, the two wives and their husbands, Samuel and Richard Lawson would often go out to dinner and even spend vacations together. They’re usually also joined by Magic Johnson and his wife Cookie.
LA TANYA AND SAMUEL'S LASTING RELATIONSHIP
Tanya has been married to her actor-husband for 38 years now, a feat they can truly be proud of. Last month, during the celebration of her husband’s 70th birthday, the actress revealed the secret to their lasting romance.
“You have to have a big heart and the Lord. You can’t do this without the Lord. You’re going to have to turn to somebody, something — because men, they are different. They’re cut from a different cloth.”
La Tanya also revealed she and her husband have a mantra that’s become the anchor for their marriage.
“I’m telling you, we were revolutionaries. We used to say the most revolutionary thing was to keep a Black family together. So that became our mantra.”
That was probably why despite Samuel’s bout with alcohol and drug addiction in the past, La Tanya stayed with her husband and saw him through it.
WHEN SAMUEL TURNED 70
On Samuel’s 70th birthday, La Tanya and their daughter Zoe threw him an epic birthday bash. The star-studded affair was so lavish it even had Samuel wearing a custom-made vest featuring a list of all his films at the back.
Guests like Magic Johnson, Al Roker, and Holly Robinson Peete tweeted about the amazing time they had at the party. Stevie Wonder was also present to serenade the box-office star with the “Happy Birthday” song.
