Sam L. Jackson hosts charity bash

Samuel L. Jackson helped to raise money for cancer foundation One For The Boys on Sunday.

The 65-year-old acting legend is the Chairman of male cancer foundation One For The Boys.

And he joined a host of celebrities at the Natural History Museum for the event, aimed to educate the public on men's health risks.

Colin Firth, Daniel Brühl, Lewis Hamilton and Jeremy Piven were among stars lending their support during the evening, which included a fashion show featuring designs by Fendi, Y-3 and Alexander McQueen.

Lewis thanked the actor for the invitation on Twitter, sharing a photo of the pair at the event on social media.

“Big thanks to my brother @SamuelLJackson for inviting me tonight, was a great event for a great cause #OneForTheBoys,” the race car driver wrote.

Samuel, who strut his stuff on the catwalk as well, was announced as the face of the charity last year.

However, MailOnline reports this year’s bi-annual menswear fashion fundraiser marked the first public event the star has hosted for the organisation.

Speaking about the importance of the cause last month, he said: “Men don't tend to talk about their health issues, worrying about appearing vulnerable. The problem is that they do not have enough information on the subject.

“One For The Boys focuses on cutting through the noise to educate men, in the hope that we can have a similar reach to that of the pink campaigns,” he said.
