Hollywood icon Samuel L. Jackson and his wife LaTanya Richardson have been together for over 50 years. Although the details of a relationship that’s lasted as long as theirs could get a little hazy from time to time for anyone, Jackson admitted he doesn’t remember much because “he was on drugs” during his recent appearance on The Jennifer Hudson Show.

After clearing up bogus Hollywood rumors about his 42-year marriage to Richardson, the actor shared their engagement story with Hudson and her live studio audience. “My story was I came home one day and she already had these invitations printed up and she gave me a stack and said, ‘Be here,'” he said. Only that’s not what really happened. The 74-year-old Oscar winner went on to share his wife’s version of the story.
