He may play a foreboding force on screen, but Samuel L Jackson showed off his softer side this week as he wished his wife LaTanya Richardson a happy wedding anniversary.
Sharing a shot of his 1980 wedding day to Instagram, we have to say this may take the throwback cake this week in celebrity rewinds. Both looking resplendent in white, Sam and LaTanya are beaming to the camera as the fresh husband and wife cut their cake.
Of course, that went along with a lovely message to his wife.
‘Happy Anniversary at ltjackson_‼You’re my Rock & reason to get up everyday work on giving you the best I have to offer,’ he wrote on Sunday night.
‘Thanks for All You Are! You are Love, walking, talking, challenging & everlasting! I Love You with all that I am😍💥💐‼️#ifitwaseasyerrrbodycoulddoit#itsallbeenworthit.’
Ergh God this is just the best.
Fans were quick to reply, with Ryan Reynolds throwing out a bunch of praise hands and heart emojis to communicate his feelings.
Singer Johnny Gill added: ‘The two greatest people on earth! Happy Anniversary!!’
Julianne Moore wanted to be at the party as she wrote: ‘Happy anniversary u beauties,’ while Nia Long added: ‘So beautiful. Wow, Sam.’
The latest recruit to the Marvel Cinematic Universe Mahershala Ali was all for it, as he added some more prayer hands.
Oh, Halle Berry was also giving out congratulations as she sent love to ‘two of her favorite humans’.
There’s just so much love.
To Kill A Mockingbird actress LaTanya previously opened up to Essence about her decades-spanning marriage to Nick Fury.
‘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,’ she said. ‘They’re cut from a different cloth.’ She added: ‘No matter what: don’t let the sun go down on your wrath.’
He told Us Weekly, “We understand the bond we have, the commonality of experiences, the commonality of the joy of the theater and of our lives and of our daughter’s life, so it’s easy for us to stay connected.”
LaTanya Richardson has patiently understood the man in her life and the differences he comes with. And her understanding has ensured that both of them will always have an irreplaceable place in each other’s heart. While talking about what makes their marriage work, she said, “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.”
