President Obama isn't the only one who insists on unwinding on the green.

Samuel L. Jackson, the highest grossing actor of all time, leverages his star power to negotiate some golf time into every movie contract.

"Generally, they either move me onto a golf course so I can play or join a club so I can play, and they have to let me play at least twice a week," Jackson said.

"I like golf because it's a perfect game for an only child like me," the star said. "In this game, you get responsibility for everything you do bad, and you get all the credit for everything you do well."

Jackson will appear in Spike Lee's upcoming "Oldboy" remake, and a remake of "Robocop" next year. He also has sequels to "Captain America" and "The Avengers expected out in the next two years.
