But right when she got off stage, The Fighter star was already doing damage control. "Those words, I apologize to anyone that they offend. There's a great deal of the English language that is in my vernacular," she said in the backstage press room. "I really don't mean to offend, and probably a very inappropriate place to use that particular word."

Maybe she was just staying in character -- Alice, the working class mother she played in the film, was not a shy one.
