After his critically acclaimed TV series "Breaking Bad," Aaron Paul is not getting way from his character Jesse Pinkman as he regularly cornered about his famous phrase. The 34-year-old actor was recently invited in The Graham Norton Show to talk about his latest movie "Need for Speed."

The car-themed flick is hitting theaters on March 14, after finishing his famous TV series "Breaking Bad" season finale. Known for his role as Jesse Pinkman, a crystal meth addict who teams up with his chemistry teacher who turned out to be a drug kingpin, Paul sits down with Graham Norton with "Fifty of Shades Grey" Jamie Dornan.
Aaron revealed on the talk show is the he is constantly called b***h. "I get called 'b***h' every day and people ask me to call them it," the actor revealed. "The other day a grandmother who had to be pushing 90 asked me and I did. It felt so wrong and yet so right."
The actor also confessed that playing Tobey Marshall his character in "Need for Speed" is a breath of fresh air after playing Jesse Pinkman for seven years. He said that playing his new character is just light and fun which is far more different from Jesse's character that is "so unbelievably tortured and lonely and sad."
Directed by Scott Waugh, "Need for Speed" is an adaptation of the "Need for Speed" series of video games by Electronic Arts. Other stars that are on the movie include Imogen Poots as Julia Maddon, Dominic Cooper as Dino Brewster and Michael Keaton as Monarch.
While on the UK, Paul recently smashed Top Gear's Star in a Reasonably Priced car Challenge with a time of 1:44.7, besting the record of 1:45.1 by AC/DC's Brian Johnson. Just like any who doesn't want to be on the bottom of the board, Paul said: "I just don't want to get last. Setting high goals for myself not to get last."
The actor also admitted to host Jeremy Clarkson that he just want to do better than James Blunt and was ecstatic when his time was revealed that he actually beat the record. His recent feat is perfectly apt when he is currently starring in a racing movie.
