Every Time Samuel L. Jackson Has Said 'Motherf--ker' In Film

Posted: Updated:

It's a safe bet that there’s no swear jar in Samuel L. Jackson’s household. If there were -– even after appearing in over 150 movies and television shows since 1978 -- the iconic actor would probably be broke.

From childhood, saying “motherfucker” and other swears was the only thing that helped Jackson overcome his debilitating stutter, and at last count he has spelled the phrase at least 151 unique ways on Twitter. But the actor’s most enduring contribution to the cuss will doubtless be his silver-screen legacy. Jackson has uttered “motherfucker” 171 times in 27 different movies, demonstrating more range with this single expletive than most actors display in their entire oeuvre.

To celebrate this accomplishment we have painstakingly gathered them all into the one glorious video for your viewing pleasure. If this isn't poetry, we don’t know what is.

We wish Samuel L. Jackson another 171 motherfuckers, of health, happiness and success.
