Jackson: I lost virginity at 11

Samuel L Jackson has revealed how he lost his virginity when he was 11 years old.

The Django Unchained star admitted that he got close to a group of older girls as they went skinny dipping while he holidayed at a relative's farm in Georgia.

He told Playboy: "There was a family of girls who lived through the woods from us, and we all used to meet at this creek and swim naked. I was about 10 or 11. I think two of the girls were about 14, 15, so that's when it happened."

The 64-year-old actor added: "Girls were interesting to me, period. They could be fat, skinny, tall, short, ugly, beautiful - as long as they were willing to do that thing."

Despite his early start, Samuel has since settled down and has been married to actress LaTanya Richardson since 1980. The couple met while they were studying in the same city - he studied at the all-male Morehouse College, Atlanta, while she was at Spelman College.

They have one child, daughter Zoe, together.
