“Breaking Bad” star Aaron Paul called a 90-year-old grandmother an expletive after she begged him to shout his catchphrase from the hit drama.

The actor played drug dealer Jesse Pinkman in the show, and became known to viewers for his use of the curse word.

He is frequently approached by fans asking him to shout their favorite line from the TV drama and Paul is always happy to oblige no matter what their age.

He tells U.K. talk show host Graham Norton, “I get called ‘B****’ every day and people ask me to call them it. The other day a grandmother who had to be pushing 90 asked me and I did. It felt so wrong and yet so right!”

Bill Seeks to Ban Drones From Flying Near Prisons

FILE - This March 12, 2014 file photo shows a drone landing after flying over the scene of an explosion that leveled two apartment buildings in East Harlem in New York. Brian Wilson, the owner, says he uses the aerial drone to document buildings, weddings and news events. The Federal Aviation Administration bars commercial use of drones no matter how seemingly benign. Officials say rules to address the special safety challenges associated with unmanned aircraft need to be in place before they can share the sky with manned aircraft and final regulations could be years away. But tempting technology and an eager marketplace are outrunning the aviation agency's best intentions. Photographers, real estate agents, moviemakers, and others are hurrying to embrace the technology.

The bill, sponsored by Sen. Tim Bivins, seeks to prevent drones from flying over prison yards and dropping packages containing drugs, pornography, razorblades and other contraband, which has happened in other states.
