Hollywood actor, Samuel L Jackson, was an absolute sweetheart as he paid tribute to his wife on their 40th wedding anniversary.

The Avengers: Endgame actor took to his Instagram to celebrate his and LaTanya Richardson’s big day – no, you’re crying..

Using a dancing metaphor alongside throwback photos of the couple seemingly getting their grooves on, the 71-year-old wrote how the two have ‘moved as one.’

’50 years ago we started dancing, it was all fun & games,’ he wrote. ’40 years ago today, s**t got real! The slow drag of our lives pressed together, I led sometimes, sometimes she did.

‘We finally found that rhythm where there was no leader, we moved as one. We’re still glued together, hip to hip, a holding each other up, not covering as much of the floor, but owning & loving the space that’s ours.’

He continued: ‘HAPPY ANNIVERSARY @ltjackson_ Love 💕 You for keeping me on my toes & on the beat for 18,250 days. You make my soul 🎶 sing‼️Don’t change the tune, we’re not done dancing🖤🖤🖤🖤💗’

In 2018, LaTanya had shared the secret to a long-lasting marriage.

‘You have to have a big heart and the Lord. You can’t do this without the Lord,’ she told Essence.

‘You’re going to have to turn to somebody, something — because men, they are different. They’re cut from a different cloth.’

She continued: ‘I’m telling you, we were revolutionaries. We used to say the most revolutionary thing was to keep a Black family together. So that became our mantra.’
