Beating the likes of Samuel L. Jackson and Adam Sandler, it's emerged that Jonah Hill is the sweariest actor in all of Hollywood.

The star of movies like Superbad and 21 Jump Street scooped the accolade after 3,500 movies were analysed for their robust language.

Hill's swear count was assisted hugely by his role in The Wolf of Wall Street, in which he played trader Donnie Azoff.

That movie, as inspected by Buzz Bingo, which broke down the numbers, features a massive 715 expletives in all.

It helped Hill climb to 376 curse words through all the movies in his relatively short career so far, beating some considerably more seasoned actors.

Behind Hill is his Wolf of Wall Street co-star Leonardo DiCaprio with 361 swears on screen, Samuel L. Jackson with 301, Adam Sandler with 295, Al Pacino with 255, Denzel Washington with 193, Billy Bob Thornton with 145, Seth Rogen with 143, Bradley Cooper with 142 and Danny McBride with 136.
