Relation with her Father, Samuel L. Jackson:
Zoe and Samuel always had a friendly, witty, and quirky relationship. Samuel L. Jackson once admitted in an interview that he couldn’t control his words around Zoe even when she was young. He said,
“I remember all those times when I did read to my daughter when she was that age and everybody tells you reading stories will put kids to sleep, but it never works. It didn’t in my house.”
He jokingly added,
“I did say ‘go the f—k to sleep to her a lot, and I think at some point she would look at me when I would come into her room, and she would say, ‘Go the f—k to sleep, Daddy?’ and I would say, ‘Yeah, go the f—k to sleep.'”
This definitely shows the lightheartedness of the relationship the duo shared. Jackson became strict and stern when Zoe came of age to start dating boys. She’d accompany her Father to various red carpet events as well.
Yet, all marriages have their hardship and struggles. The same thing was the case of the Jackson family. The year 1991 was challenging for the Jacksons. Samuel L. Jackson got caught in the traps of drugs. He’d often be intoxicated, which became a problem for everyone around him, especially little Zoe.
Once Zoe, and her Mother, LaTanya Richardson, found Samuel passed out on the Kitchen floor, drugs surrounding his stiff and lifeless-looking body. The recovery was a long road, but Samuel did it. Samuel has also admitted in an interview that Zoe was the glue that held his marriage together.
