So his incessant cursing finally makes sense!

In case you missed, Hateful Eight starSamuel L Jackson appeared on Howard Stern’s show and revealed the secret to how he overcame a problem with stuttering.

Jackson grew up with the speech condition and was sadly picked on as a kid, so much so that he didn’t talk for a year – but luckily he found the most peculiar healing tool.

Stern asked him: “You stuttered (…) and you said the word Motherf***er helps you get through the stutter right?”

Jackson, 67, replied: “Yes it does. I have no idea but it just does. It clicks a switch that stops the d-d-d-d, b-b-b-b.”

As GQ magazine reported – it most certainly does add an emotional layer to his famous line, “I’ve had it with these mother***ing snakes on this mother***ing plane!”
