Samuel L Jackson must be pretty fucking fucked off this morning, because Jonah Hill has taken his previous award of most sweary actor in film history.

The dubious honour was confirmed by a new report by website Buzz Bingo, which Jonah proudly shared to his Instagram account over the weekend. The report found that Jonah had cursed 376 times over the course of his cinematic career, eclipsing Samuel L Jackon’s previous record of 301, and accounting to an incredible 22.9 curses per 1,000 words uttered. Damn.

It’s probably not very surprising that Jonah’s nabbed the title. After all, his 2013 appearance in Martin Scorsese’s Wolf of Wall Street probably helped. It was named the most profane movie of all fucking time (with Uncut Gems coming in a close second). Jonah even gave the director a shout out in his Instagram caption, thanking him for “pushing me over the edge”. But we will always remember his swearing more fondly via Seth in Superbad, particularly the line “so I gotta sit and eat my dessert alone like I’m fucking Steven Glansberg”. Iconic.

“Humbled,” the actor ended his IG acceptance speech with. Congratulfuckinglations Jonah!
