Bryan Cranston, Jimmy Fallon

Earlier this week, Bryan Cranston had no idea what the word "badonkadonk" meant or how to pronounce it.

During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, he horribly pronounced the slang booty term, much to the audience's entertainment.

"I had no idea what it meant," Cranston told us last night at his Godzilla premiere in Hollywood. "I do know now!"

As or who schooled him on the meaning of "badonkadonk," the Breaking Bad star smiled, "Everybody told me! I'm an old guy. I had no idea what it meant."

That said, Cranston say's he's definitely going to work the bootylicious slang word into his vocabulary. "I will totally [use it]," he joked to us. "I'll cut it short like, ‘Look at dat ‘donk!' Like that."


The whole "badonkadonk" mishap happened during Jimmy Fallon's Word Sneak game where he and Cranston had to casually work unsual words into their conversation. When it came time for Cranston to use the term, he blurted it out as "bada-kahn-donk!" causing everyone to burst into laughter.

Gotta love him!
