Many actors have cursed onscreen, but few have elevated swearing to an art form the way Samuel L. Jackson has.
Now, the star of such profanity-laced Tarantino features as “Pulp Fiction” and “Jackie Brown” is offering to share his swearing secrets.
On Monday, Jackson took to Twitter to offer his followers a deal: if 2,500 people visit his Head Count website and either register to vote or check to confirm that they’re already registered, he promises to “teach you to swear in 15 different languages.”

Fans “blasted through” the voter registration goal. So Jackson held up his part of the bargain: “Here’s some Cussin’ 15 ways to go!”

Back in 2018, Jackson paid a visit to “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, where he revealed his favourite curse word to be “motherf**ker,” and how it can be used in a variety of contexts.
“It has to be either heartfelt or lighthearted to the effect it’s not offensive…” he explained. “For instance, it’s like if I looked at you and said, ‘Wow, that jacket is a motherf***er’, it really means it’s a beautiful and extraordinary jacket.”
DeGeneres use the word in the context of not liking the jacket. “That jacket’s a motherf***er,” he snarled. “It’s such a descriptive and encompassing word.”
