Melissa Leo Blames Kate Winslet for Oscars F-Bomb (VIDEO)
At the start of the interview, Ellen DeGeneres surprises Leo with a swear jar and a tiny pair of earphones to shield her Oscar from any possible profanity. Then, Leo explains that curse words are simply part of her regular vocabulary. "It's part of my vernacular, part of my upbringing," she said.
Leo goes on to say that none other than Kate Winslet, who she worked with on the upcoming miniseries 'Mildred Pierce,' was to blame for her faux pas. "[She] curses like a sailor all the time. So, she was in my mind. Yeah, it's Kate's fault," said Leo.
