Samuel L. Jackson explains how he stays looking so young

Samuel L. Jackson explains how he stays looking so young

The actor is 74 today.

Samuel L. Jackson celebrates his birthday today (21 December) and we have to say, the actor certainly does not look his age - not even close.

Jackson turned 74 today, but people are in awe of his young looks and in an unearthed interview from 14 years ago, the actor revealed all about how he looks and feels so youthful.

You can watch the clip below:

When told he looked way younger than his actual age, Jackson explained his tips and tricks.

He said: "When I was a kid and I'd talk to my grandfather's brothers and they'd say how old they were you'd be like 'oh my god they're so old'.

"Then you find someone who passes [...] and you think that's so young. Now I'll be 60 this year, when I look in the mirror it's not what I expected to see when I heard the word 'Sam' and '60' so maybe I do look a bit younger.

"Times have changed, we have better exercise regimes, do better with our diets, they have such great skincare products now, and if all else fails, find a good doctor."

And now, even at the age of 74, Jackson still looks much younger.

One person commented on the YouTube video a few years ago: "And now he's near 70 and looks the same."

While another said: "He's 70 and looks 37."

In other news, earlier this month, we told you how Jackson earns a minimum $4 million (£3.2 million) for each appearance as Marvel's Nick Fury.

Even if his cameo lasts a matter of seconds, Samuel L. Jackson's fifth favourite movie character of all time reportedly brings in millions of dollars of cash, no matter what.

The Marvel actor has appeared in eleven Marvel Cinematic Universe films so far, starting with Iron Man way back in 2008.

According to Screen Rant, Jackson secured the deal of a lifetime by negotiating an agreement with Marvel, for which he apparently earns a minimum of $4-6 million every time he appears.

His incredible portfolio of work ranges from Ordell Robbie in Jackie Brown to Jules Winnfield in Pulp Fiction, and even Frozone in The Incredibles.
