After suffering various unpleasant experiences, Samuel L Jackson has turned out to be one of the most prominent actors of this age while boasting a beautiful family.
Samuel L Jackson is not only an amazing actor, he is a family man as he has been married to LaTanya Richardson for about 40 years and has a daughter, Zoe, with her.
The 36-year-old is the spitting image of him, as several pictures have shown over the years. She also seems to have picked up on his dress sense as they have been seen sporting similar styles.

Jackson credits his success to his wife and daughter while referring especially to the time they found him passed out after getting drunk at a friend's bachelor party.
The actor is grateful that his wife sent him off to rehab when she could have just left him. He claims they are the reason he kept going and finally got clean.
The 71-year-old definitely understands the importance of a present father as he never had one growing up. He said his daughter deserves two parents which is one reason the couple stayed together.
The "Shaft" actor shared that he is still in love with his wife and that is perhaps why they are still together. He also pointed at the things they have in common such as theater as Richardson is a Broadway actress.
Jackson's family has a long history of Alzheimer's.
Richardson pointed at some other things, such as having a big heart, trusting God, and not letting the sun go down on your anger. She added that you would need to forgive and forget as men are different from women.
The couple has a mantra that they both believe, consider achievable, and work towards, and she suggests that all couples get one. She added that women shouldn't stop working in order to paint a picture for their kids.
The "Django Unchained" actor described his wife and daughter as his foundation and support as they challenge him to be better. He added that his daughter taught him not to respond to trolls online but leave them to his fans.
The Oscar nominee definitely brought his daughter up differently as he never censored his speech with her. She ended up using a lot of swear words growing up while developing a strong will.
He is also the new face of Alzheimer's Research UK's "#ShareTheOrange" campaign because Jackson's family has a long history of Alzheimer's.
