Kate Winslet has fired off a hilarious and foul-mouthed rant aimed at pal Melissa Leo after the actress blamed the Brit for her expletive-laced Oscars acceptance speech on Sunday (27Feb11).
Leo made Academy Awards history when she became the first star to utter the 'F' word onstage at the Oscars, and has since blamed Winslet for the slip-up.
Appearing on Ellen DeGeneres' chat show in America on Tuesday (01Mar11), The Fighter star said, "We did (TV movie) Mildred Pierce... She's (Winslet) delightful and curses like a sailor all the time. She was in my mind. It's Kate's fault."
And the Titanic star has picked up the joke.
In an interview with Zap2It.com, she says, "Everyone dumps all this s**t on me, all the f**king time. She (Leo) is right, though. She is absolutely right. I have got to hand it to her, and she did curse on the stage of the Academy Awards. That's my kind of cool.
"I sent her a text message (that read): 'Is that f**king you, Melissa? You motherf**king cow,' and the b**ch hasn't called me back!"
Leo has publicly apologised for her Oscar night expletive, stating, "It just slipped out. I was a little excited."
