Samuel L Jackson invites Phillip Schofield to show off his 'model stroll' on the catwalk


Samuel L Jackson has invited TV presenter Phillip Schofield to show off his "slim body" as part of his men's fashion show.

The actor tried to scout Phillip as a celebrity model for his charity Fashion Ball on June 12.

Last year's models included actor Stanley Tucci, music star Alice Cooper, rugby player Chris Robshaw and supermodel David Gandy - and Samuel has his eye on Phillip to walk the catwalk at this year's event.

Appearing on ITV's This Morning, he told the TV presenter: "Hoping you might come, give us your slim body on the catwalk.

"You do have a model stroll, don't you? I've seen it."

Phillip responded: "I have to see what I can cancel in the diary."

Samuel, who is chairman of the One For The Boys charity, also spoke out about cancer and why men can be reluctant to get checked.

He said: "We're taught not to talk about our pain and to suck it up and carry on, or tough it out and be a man."

The 67-year-old also vowed to reclaim his spot from Harrison Ford as the highest-grossing US actor.

In January, it was reported that Harrison had overtaken Samuel - with the Indiana Jones star edging him out by a margin of around 70 million dollars (£48.4 million).

Avengers star Samuel - who is a former Star Wars actor - is confident he can move back into first position.

He said: "He's in that little thing, that little Star Wars movie.

"I got Tarzan coming out in July, I've got a Tim Burton movie coming out in September. He's done."
