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.

You’ve got to love Rita!

Rita Moreno’s SAG Awards Speech: She Shows Love To Brad Pitt & Jeremy Renner

Swearing aside, Rita really did make the most of her time on the SAG stage. She began by doing a bit from The Electric Company – the show whose soundtrack earned Rita a Grammy Award — with Morgan Freeman, her former co-star.

She also gave sexy shout outs to Brad Pitt and Jeremy Renner during her rather lengthy acceptance speech, proving she’s still got it after all these years!

First of all – She did not say that. Rita Moreno never said the ‘f word’. In truth she said the world ‘bloody’ (although more a phrase used by the English, and not American’s as much). Where as in following up she said “I’m sorry about that word … actually I’m not,” Because the word of ‘bloody’ was considered less offensive. And in reality was not bleeped out of her speech either. Where as if it had been blanked out. Perhaps the thought of being the ‘f word’ – the never was .

She said this with kids in the audience. Notice the face-left. What is she in her mid 70’s and no wrinkles! LOL. These people are a piece of work.

I was amazed that she’s 82 years old. It was mesmerizing when she sang.
