Actor Samuel L Jackson landed in trouble after taking his daughter ZOE out partying in Italy, because journalists claimed he was cheating on his wife with a much-younger woman.

The Hollywood actor, 56, and his 22-year-old offspring enjoyed what they thought was an innocent night out together, but overzealous journalists soon reported that Jackson was being unfaithful to wife LaTANYA.

He says, "There was an article about me running from nightclub to nightclub with a girl young enough to be my daughter. And my mom called me and was like, 'What are you doing?' I'm like, 'Look, it was your granddaughter!'

"She's with me, we're in Milan, we're at the fashion shows, so at night we go to the clubs. My daughter's hanging out with me and for some reason they assumed it was someone else."
