Samuel L. Jackson has a special clause inserted into all of his contracts to protect his work-life balance.
What is the clause Samuel L Jackson would insert into EVERY movie contract he ever signs?
The Hateful Eight star, 74, insists on being able to play golf twice each week while he is filming, with movie teams often moving him onto a course while he is working on a production.
He told CNN: ‘They have to let me play at least twice a week. I like golf because it’s a perfect game for an only child like me – you get responsibility for everything you do bad, and you get all the credit for everything you do well.’
How Samuel L Jackson fell in love with golf?
In the 2013 interview, he also spoke of how he first fell in love with the sport.

He added: ‘Now they don’t play with me.
‘But there is not much need for that, as he now has plenty of celebrity and professional players who join him.
These include five-time Masters winner Tiger Woods, who he met for a round at St Andrews in Scotland.
Jackson’s favourite course was at Augusta National Golf Club, home of the Masters, where he was treated to three rounds in return for his work on 2006’s Freedomland.
The actor will likely be getting a few swings in this year, with Marvel series Secret Invasion having come out in June, and a host of projects pending completion such as The Kill Room, which he stars in alongside Uma Thurman.
