Ah, the F-bomb.
If there’s one state in the United States that’s probably the least in tune with bad language in movies, it’s New Jersey. Here in Dirty Jerz, if we don’t curse you, it means we don’t like you. Even our Jersey girls are getting in on the act.
So it’s only fitting that an actor born in New Jersey should have the honor of dropping the most F-bombs in movie history. But who?
Crossword-solver.io did a study ripping through thousands of movie scripts to find who was the most rude in movies. Before we get to the king of F-bombs, let’s take a look at the less serious offenders.
According to the study, the expletive swear word is said the most by Denzel Washington: 84 times across all of his work and a staggering 56 times on “Training Day” alone.
Damn, that’s a lot.
How about him-double-toothpick? H**la was said more than any other actor by Al Pacino with a tally of 49.
If you haven’t figured it out yet, the undisputed f-bomb king is our very own Joe Pesci. According to the study, he dropped an f-bomb 271 times in all of his movies. But it was really just one movie that depicts almost all of them.
Can you guess?
No, not “Goodfellas”.
Certainly not “Home Alone”, come on!
Yeah, that was “Casino” in 1995. They say he used it 241 times in that movie alone.
Born in Newark and raised in Belleville, Joe Pesci is about as Jersey as it gets. His mother worked part-time cutting hair and his father drove a forklift for General Motors and was a bartender on the side.
By the way, I’m making Julia Roberts an honorary jersey girl. She is the only woman to make the top 25 for using s**t and h**l. To see who else had dirty mouths in the movies, go here.
