The demand that Samuel L. Jackson has in each of his contracts
Samuel L. Jackson is Hollywood’s most bankable actor. With nearly 200 screen credits under his belt (via IMDb), Jackson has appeared in everything from “The Avengers” and “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith” to cult thrillers like “Snakes on a Plane” and Beloved independent films like “Pulp Fiction.” His appearances in all of these films – as well as many, many more – have made him one of Hollywood’s most recognizable and influential actors. His passion for acting is, indeed, unparalleled. Apparently his love for golf is too.
According to Clubhouse Swing U, Jackson is an avid golfer, so much so that he beat Tiger Woods at the St. Andrews Golf Course. This suggests that Jackson could reasonably have pursued professional golf as a second career. Fortunately for his millions of fans, he has become an actor instead and plays golf recreationally. However, his passion for golf clearly has not gone away. In fact, Jackson even demands that it be written in all of his film contracts that he is allowed to play golf twice a week while filming a project (via The New York Times).
Considering how busy Jackson is, it’s undeniably impressive that he manages to star in as many movies and TV shows as he does while maintaining a healthy pastime as a recreational golfer.
