The censors narrowly caught Rita’s big blurt, which she followed up with several sexy shout outs to Brad Pitt and Jeremy Renner!
Rita Moreno‘s Life Achievement Award quickly became an even bigger deal when the iconic actress took the stage at the 20th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. After her triumphant arrival to the microphone Jan. 18, the 82-year-old legend immediately dropped the f-bomb!
“I am so f***ing thrilled,” Rita exclaimed after doing a victory lap around her award. She then added, “I hope the man with the [censor] button was there.”
Fortunately for Rita, “the man with the button” was, in fact, there to catch her unscripted outburst. And don’t expect an apology statement from the West Side Story star.
“I’m sorry about that word … actually I’m not,” Rita later said, eliciting uproarious laughter from the crowd of actors.
