Kristen Stewart has opened up about the F-bomb she dropped during her “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig last month, explaining that she “felt so bad” about unleashing the profanity during her opening monologue.
“I felt so bad about it. I just came offstage apologizing profusely and being like, ‘I’m so sorry, that’s not something I thought was going to happen,'” former “Twilight” star Stewart told USA Today.
“And they were really nice about it. They were like, ‘We still have an entire show to do, don’t think about it.”
During the opening monologue, Stewart riffed on President Donald Trump’s years-old Twitter obsession about Stewart’s relationship with her former co-star Robert Pattinson.
“So yeah, that is crazy. right? The president is not a huge fan of me. But that is so okay,” Stewart said. “And Donald, if you didn’t like me before, you’re really probably not going to like me now. Because I’m hosting ‘SNL’ and I’m like so gay, dude.”
At monologue’s end Stewart declared her excitement about hosting the show, saying, “We’ve got a great show, and I totally care about being here, because it’s the coolest f-cking thing ever.”
Stewart said that “SNL” boss Lorne Michaels didn’t sweat her on the slipped curse word, adding that she managed not to unleash the potty-talk in previous run-throughs of the show.
“It was funny, because I got through every single dress rehearsal without ever (swearing) in a scene, and before we actually went live, every single person was like, ‘You’re going to do great, it’ll be over in an hour, just let the show catch you, and please, please, please don’t say (the F-word),’ ” Stewart said. “I was like, ‘I won’t, trust me, there’s no way.’ And, of course, (I did) in like the first five minutes.”
In case you missed it, watch Stewart let fly with the F-word in the video. Cover your ears toward the end if you’re easily offended.
