When it comes to cancer - conversations need to be had. That's the message Samuel L. Jackson is pushing as he hosts his annual charity gala "One For The Boys" - in aid of raising male cancer awareness. The Hollywood A-lister arriving in London's Camden Town for the event. Joined by fellow acting stars like Luke Wilson. SOUNDBITE: Actor, Luke Wilson, saying (English): "You can become very inspired by what people like that do and they seem to be able to do things that maybe politicians can't do for whatever reason, sometimes you can get people like Sam who can have as much impact as a Senator or a Duke over here." The gala focusses on fashion, as Men's Fashion Week in London kicks off. Fitting then that model David Gandy and his singer girlfriend Mollie King were also there in support. Formula One ace Lewis Hamilton returning this year too. Many here speaking about the fact men need to talk more. SOUNDBITE: Formula One Driver, Lewis Hamilton, saying (English): "Because it's private stuff and it's not easy for anyone to talk about these issues, not only for guys but for women as well, and I don't know, it's just important that we encourage people to be more open about things." Some here now planning on getting their doctors appointments in sooner than they had planned - like band "A Great Big World." SOUNDBITE: "A Great Big World" Band Members, Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino, saying (English): CHAD: "Well we probably should go for a check-up after this." IAN: "Soon, soon. I'm 30. What age are you supposed to start, do you know?" REPORTER: "I don't know, no." IAN: "I think I'm getting there." CHAD: "I think it's close." "One For The Boys" was founded in 2012 by Jackon's British publicist Sofia Davis to commemorate the death of a friend's brother from cancer.
