In case you didn’t know, Hollywood movie star Samuel L Jackson is a huge fan of our club.
The Pulp Fiction star, who is one of the best-paid actors of all time, has been explaining what made him fall in love with the club in the first place.
“I shot a film there and I had never been to a proper football game until I got to Liverpool,” he said. (Echo)
“That was like my first football experience so that’s why particularly I am a Liverpool fan, that was my introduction to football and I spent a lot of time in the stadium singing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’.”
He admitted he had been back there for the first time in a while last year, and couldn’t believe the changes that the city had been through – especially the water front.
“God, it’s changed. The whole river front has changed and there’s loads of nice tapas restaurants,” he added.
“I was kind of like ‘tapas in Liverpool?’ When I was originally there shooting…not so much.
“We found this amazing Chinese restaurant, too, which was right by where I was living, which was great.”
BBC Radio One host Nick Grimshaw confirmed he was also a Liverpool fan during the interview.
