By Aaron Paul's estimation, there is no one on the planet who's been lovingly referred to as "bitch" more than him.
During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Tuesday night, Paul—who's currently starring in the Hulu cult drama The Path—reflected on a decade of Breaking Bad fan adoration. "I can't believe it's been 10 years," he said, referencing the premiere's Jan. 20 anniversary. "We're so much older." As Paul has discussed previously, his Breaking Bad character Jesse Pinkman almost didn't make it past the first season.
"I didn't know that, but it was toward the end of the first season, [creator Vince Gilligan] comes up to me and says, 'Hey, I wanna let you know we were gonna kill you off at the end of the show, at the end of this season,' which was like two episodes to go and I just started instantly panicking, of course," Paul said. "Then he just told me, 'Well, that completely changed once we got picked up.'"
As for how often he still gets called "bitch" out in public a full decade after Breaking Bad's pilot first aired, Paul confirmed Tuesday that it's still a daily occurrence. "I mean, I've said this before, but I think I've been called 'bitch' more than anyone on the planet," he said. "Easily. Think about it. I'm proud of that." (But he's about to have a kid, so maybe chill a little when they're out together.)
The Path, also starring Michelle Monaghan and Hugh Dancy, kicked off its third season last week. If you've been sleeping on the show like some kind of dunce thus far, get caught up with seasons 1 and 2 on Hulu before the latest batch of new episodes comes to a close in April.
