Actress Elaine Stritch adds to a long list of "F-bombs" on TV

You can't compliment Elaine Stritch on her anything-goes attitude and expect her not to take advantage of it.

On the "Today" show Tuesday, Stritch let a curse word slip while she was speaking with Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford , and didn't seem to have an ounce of regret.

The 89-year-old actress, who's won hearts everywhere from the stage to "The Cosby Show" to "30 Rock," was on the morning program to promote her documentary, "Just Shoot Me."

"Elaine, you are so beloved as much for your work, of course, but for your mouth," Gifford said. "You say whatever you want to say. When did that all happen?"

As it turned out, it "happened" right there on live TV.

"Thank God it hasn't been passed on television. If you just say things naturally, it's fine," Stritch said. "They just think and f***."
