Apparently Samuel L. Jackson needs to say “m*****f****r” as much as audiences want him to.

In a speech at last night’s American Institute for Stuttering gala, Jackson revealed that the swear word wards off a stutter he has been battling since his childhood in Tennessee. Audiences may have thought that Jackson simply had an unusual affinity for using the word, but apparently “m*****f****r” saved his life.

When New York Magazine pressed Jackson to confirm the “stutter swear” anecdote from his speech, he claimed he still says “m*****f****r” every single day under his breath as a sort of daily affirmation.
