SIDEWAYS star Paul Giamatti fears his foul mouth ruined the movie experience for Cinderella Man co-stars Russell Crowe and Renee Zellweger because he couldn't stop swearing.

The actor had to constantly reshoot his scenes because he's find himself ad-libbing swear words after taking tips from movie consultant ANGELO DUNDEE.

He says, "He (Dundee) was the greatest boxing trainer that ever lived. He was Muhammad Ali's trainer. He was in the corner and he would give me pointers and stuff.

"It was very hard actually, working with him, because he's got an incredibly foul mouth and this is a PG-13 movie, so I had to constantly reshoot things because I'd jump in the ring and go, `You f'ing...' all of that stuff because it rubs off on you.

"Those guys never stop swearing, it's unbelievable. It goes with the sport."
