“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!”
