Even if it bugs mums the world over, swearing is a big thing in movies. Now we know whose mum is likely the most ashamed.

While our money would have been on Samuel L Jackson, he came in down the list at third. Still a reasonable motherf–king showing, we guess.
The stats come from Buzz Bingo, who have painstakingly run the numbers on profanity in film by studying some 3,500 scripts.
Beyond the most profane actors (Leo DiCaprio scored the number two spot, in case you’re wondering) they also rated actual movies.
