​Jonah Hill Beats Samuel L Jackson For Using Most Swear Words In Cinema

​Jonah Hill Beats Samuel L Jackson For Using Most Swear Words In Cinema

It's official: Jonah Hill has beaten Samuel L Jackson for using the most swear words on film - and he's absolutely f***ing chuffed.

Hill shared a screenshot from an article on Instagram, writing: "So many people to thank. @martinscorsese_ thanks for pushing me over the edge. And of course the great @samuelljackson. Humbled."

"He added: "Also 'new report'? Lol what team of scientists cracked this one?"


The article he'd screenshotted was from The Wrap, which had referenced new analysis from research group Buzz Bingo called 'Profanity on Film'.

According to the research, he has used bad language a total of 376 times throughout his filmography, while Jackson - a known pottymouth - trails behind with 301.

As Hill pointed out, his victory is due in no small part to his turn as Donnie Azoff in Martin Scorsese's 2013 hit The Wolf of Wall Street, as that flick has a grand total of 712 swear words in it.

According to the study, Azoff has an average of 74 swears per 1,000 words.

Hill, who also featured in Superbad as Seth - another character known to drop the odd f-bomb or two (152 swears to be precise) - was congratulated on Instagram by many of his famous friends.

Fellow actor Seth Rogen simply wrote: "The dream."


In a reply, Hill proposed: "We should make a last dance style doc of me exhausted getting to the final f***. 'I can't do it anymore!'"

Singer Adam Levine also commented: "I'm so f***ing proud of you baby boy. So fucking motherf***ing proud. F*** yeah I'm proud. F***."

While actor Rashida Jones added: "Congratulations my friend. Well done!"
