Aaron Paul is trying to "wean" himself off using the word "b***h".

The 34-year-old actor's best-known character, Breaking Bad's Jesse Pinkman was renowned for using the word in much of his dialogue.

Paul is currently happy to use the curse to address fans when they ask him to, but thinks he'll get tired of it eventually.

He said: [People say 'b***h' to me] every day. When I was walking in Hyde Park in London yesterday to get a beer by the water, these two guys rode their bikes past me and I heard them say, 'Yeah b***h.'

"People also ask me if I will call them a b***h. I'll do it for a little longer, but I'm trying to wean myself off it."

With Breaking Bad regarded as one of the best TV shows of all time insists he won't be upset if none of his subsequent roles match the success of his breakout.

Paul’s next project is voicing a character in animated comedy BoJack, which is about a talking horse who is an alcoholic washed-up sitcom star.

He told Britain's GQ magazine: "I always joke that, since I did Breaking Bad, it's all downhill from there.

"BoJack I think is absolutely brilliant. Is it Breaking Bad? No, it's just different. But a lot of people don't come close to that opportunity.

"It's like the Doctor Seuss quote our director of photography wrote out for us all as a wrap gift; 'Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.'

"If it keeps going down, down, down, then so be it. I'll always have that."
