Samuel L Jackson

Where's Samuel L Jackson when you need him?

Remember when Kate Thornton attempted to justify her reason for calling Colin Farrell 'British' due to Ireland's proximity to the UK, and Samuel L Jackson wasted no time calling her out on it?

Well, for those of you who don't quite recall, the Hollywood A-lister, during a conversation with the British presenter, in recent years explained the problematic nature of her remark.

"You see that's your problem right there. You British keep claiming people that don't belong to you. We had that problem in America too — it was called slavery," he deadpanned.

However, it looks like Samuel's remarks may have fallen on deaf ears as we have yet another media outlet in the UK more than happy to claim one of our biggest and brightest as their own.

In the latest issue of the Mail on Sunday's You magazine, Ruth Negga was described as British despite being of Irish-Ethopian heritage.

Highlighting the work of LA stylist Karla Welch in a piece entitled Meet the SUPER STYLIST superstars – and the fashion icons they've created, Amy E Williams became yet another journalist who decided that an actor's Irish heritage was subject to change.

"This year, LA-based Karla was named Hollywood’s most powerful stylist, not least for catapulting British star Ruth Negga into the sartorial stratosphere," Amy wrote.

Having been born in Ethopia and raised in Limerick since the age of four, Ruth has often spoken of her Irish-Ethopian heritage, but it doesn't look like the memo reached Amy.


Let us warn you, this video contains some VERY bad language – but it’ll make you laugh.

Sit back and watch every time Samuel L. Jackson says ‘motherf***er’ on film (171 times, to be exact. We're kind of impressed!)



Remember that hilarious vine of what seemed like an embarrassing exchange between Victoria Beckham and Samuel L Jackson? Well it turns out it wasn’t that awkward after all, and Samuel and Victoria are best buds! Well, according to Samuel anyway.

Both Victoria and Samuel ended up sitting beside each other at the Wimbledon Men’s Final on Sunday. One audience member managed to catch, what seemed like an awkward exchange between Victoria and Samuel. He then posted the vine online and it has since become a viral hit.

But the actor hit back at the Vine on Twitter today. He said that his meeting with Victoria was not awkward at all, and the former Spice Girl was “lovely”.

He tweeted: “Lotta bull***t going round, I had a ball sitting next to @victoriabeckham at Wimbledon yesterday!

“Truly lovely! STFU!”

Well that’s us told then. The vine still looks incredibly awkward though.



We all know Victoria Beckham isn’t the biggest fan of smiling in public, but it seems the former Spice Girl wasn’t even able to say anything to the Hollywood legend that is, Samuel L Jackson.

Both Victoria and Samuel somehow ended up sitting beside each other in the Royal Box at the Wimbeldon Men’s Final yesterday.

You think these two would have plenty to talk about given their high celebrity statuses, but as this Vine shows it doesn’t seem to be the case.

Watch the moment below, you will cringe.



With so many celebrities around it is quite easy to get mixed up; however, if you are an entertainment reporter it is your job to know who’s who.

Unfortunately, KTLA’s Sam Rubin made this fatal error when he mixed up Samuel L. Jackson with Laurence Fishbourne and it made for some very awkward listening…
