Samuel L. Jackson admits swearing helps his stutter

POTTY MOUTH: Jackson uses swear words to cover up his stuttering (PA)

HOLLYWOOD LEGEND Samuel L. Jackson has revealed that he uses swear words while on film sets to cover up his stutter.

Addressing the American Institute for Stuttering, the 64-year-old explained how he has been affected with a speech impediment since his childhood.

Samuel said: "Growing up a stuttering black kid in Tennessee in the Fifties didn't quite make me think I was going to end up in a place like this."

The Django Unchained star said that he eventually learned in his youth how to “pretend to be other people who didn't stutter," but has since found an effective method of dealing with the issue.

Samuel told Vulture.com: "I was the other day on the set of Captain America, and they said 'Action!' and I said, 'G-g-g-et...' It was a 'G' day.

"So I have my days. I have 'G' days, I have 'P' days, I have 'B' days, I have 'S' days, and I'm still stuttering.

"But I figured out a way to do it. And some days, the best thing for me to do is say my favourite word, and I get through it: 'Motherf*****!'"
