Samuel L. Jackson has been married to his wife, LaTanya Richardson, for an impressive 38 years already, which, let's face it, is a century in Hollywood time. The couple have just one child, a daughter named Zoe Jackson.

Richardson recently took to her Instagram account to share a photo of herself and her husband, where they appeared to be relaxing on a yacht.

"Good Morning Husband and Daughter Blessing," she captioned the image of them sitting out on the deck under the roof away from the sunshine.

Richardson wore a light white dress with sheer cutouts down the length of it, and lace accents on the edges. The garment fell to just above her knees. She also wore a white lace headband and a pair of dark sunglasses, and she left the shoes at home.

Meanwhile, Jackson wore a sleeveless grey shirt and matching shorts, along with a pair of dark round sunglasses. He was seated in a chair just in front of his wife.

"Good Morning Husband and Daughter Blessing," she captioned the image.

Behind them was a beautiful view of the water and the coastline, with the cliffside rising up with house dotted about it.

The couple are away enjoying a vacation together, and another image shared by Richardson showed them "jetting" off on a speed boat, presumably to take their to their yacht.

The couple's daughter, Zoe, is not famous at all, and tends to shy away from the limelight, except on rare occasions where she has accompanied her father to Hollywood events.

But even though she keeps a low profile, her father often speaks of her, and even credited her and Richardson with saving him from his alcohol and drug addiction in the 1990's during his BET Awards speech.

He was accepting the Lifetime Achievement Award when he said: “They found me passed out on the floor after I left somebody’s bachelor party and put my ass in rehab the next day and supported me and pushed me and give me a reason to get up and go and chase it day after day.”

Zoe was just 8 years old at the time.

Richardson managed to convince her husband to enter rehab by pointing out that his career would get even better if he were clean and able to focus better on acting.

“I’ve always had my wife LaTanya, who’s my harshest critic,” he recalled. “She’d say: ‘You’re so intelligent that the first time you read something, you think you understand it intellectually and emotionally … But there’s no blood in it. It wasn’t until I got sober that I knew fully what she meant."
