Hollywood megastar Samuel L. Jackson cheered the red men on after they reached the top of the Premier League table this past weekend conquering Watford 6-1.

Jackson, star of Pulp Fiction, has made his status as an LFC supporter well known, stating that he became a fan while filming The 51st State back in 2001.

After Liverpool defeated Watford yesterday to reach the top of the table, Samuel L. Jackson sent out the now viral tweet: “Liverpooooooooooool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” expressing his joy at the match’s result.

Here’s the Avengers actor’s resounding tweet…

Samuel, one of the highest grossing actors of all time, recently spoke to Radio One Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw about his love for the city of Liverpool.

He said: “I love Liverpool, the city.

“It’s actually great, we had a great time. In fact, we actually drove down from Blackpool last year while we were shooting this film to have lunch.

“God, it’s changed. The whole river front has changed and there’s loads of nice tapas restaurants.

“We found this amazing Chinese restaurant, too, which was right by where I was living, which was great.”

He also revealed how he got the bug for the men from Anfield.

“It happened because I shot a film there and I had never been to a proper football game until I got to Liverpool.

“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’.”
