Few people deliver the word ‘m*****f*****’ in the same indelible fashion as Samuel L. Jackson (Snakes on a Plane springs to mind), and it’s an expression the celebrated actor is given the licence to say A LOT in his latest production, the gloriously entertaining actioner, The Hitman’s Bodyguard.

We had the pleasure of sitting down with Jackson, alongside his co-star (and on-screen wife) Salma Hayek, and we asked what his favourite ever use of the word m*****f***** has been on screen. Fortunately for us, he not only explains what scene – but goes ahead and does a mini reenactment of it.

We also asked the pair who, in real life, they would most feel comfortable seeking protection from in Hollywood – the joys in crafting such unashamedly fun thrillers of this nature, and whether or not fans may be able to expect a sequel.

Watch the full interview below…


The world’s top protection agent is called upon to guard the life of his mortal enemy, one of the world’s most notorious hit men. The relentless bodyguard and manipulative assassin have been on the opposite end of the bullet for years and are thrown together for a wildly outrageous 24 hours. DuringĀ their journey from England to the Hague, they encounter high-speed car chases, outlandish boat escapades and a merciless Eastern European dictator who is out for blood.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard is released on August 17th.
