The 48-year-old Saturday Night Live comedienne was promoting the new film on Live! with Kelly on Tuesday and started explaining why she sent out a message on Twitter last month (June16), calling out designers who refused to dress her for the premiere.

During her rant she accidentally let a swear word slip and producers for the show were unable to censor the word on time.

"You know what is so funny how all that happened was a text out of frustration," she explained. "I think we had two designers that were going to make me a dress. They bowed out at the last minute and I think I called my stylist Brian and I was like, 'Do we have a dress yet?' and he was like, 'No, we don't have anything,' and I was like, 'The premiere is next week.' He was like, 'Yeah, I know, we're going to have to go out and go shopping.' I was like, 'OK, let's go shopping'."

"But it was one of those things where I picked up my phone and was like, 'What, I'm on Saturday Night Live.' And I'm not trying to say that in any type of conceited way or 'I'm a star' or anything like that, but it's a big movie... and I want to look nice. I want to look good and I don't want to pay $10,000 for a dress that I'm going to wear one time.

"Maybe I'm naive, I just thought I'm going to get all kinds of calls from (different designers). Nobody called me and then I thought, 'But I'm tall and I lost weight... and then I was like, 'Oh man, I can't believe these designers aren't f**king with me!'"

Project Runway star Christian Siriano stepped in to provide the star with a custom made, red, off-the-shoulder number for the Los Angeles event earlier this month (Jul16).

Meanwhile, Jones felt she looked good on the red carpet after losing 40 pounds (18.14 kilograms) this year (16) thanks to diet and exercise, after her doctor told her to slim down.

"I got rid of soda and juice, that was the first thing that I did," she said. "That literally was 20 pounds right there. And then running in that pack (for Ghostbusters)... I would work out, I would do yoga. I really try to watch what I eat, it's not always easy because I do have a sweet tooth that is a killer. But, I do the best I can."
