Bryan Cranston: "I Had One Girlfriend I Wanted to Kill"

"I called the police because I was so afraid"

Playing a drug lord all these years has begun to sink so deep into Bryan Cranston's mind, that at one point the Breaking Bad actor fantasized about killing his ex-girlfriend. Well, in his defence, she threatened him. What else could a man do? I don't know about you, but here's what Bryan did:
"I had one girlfriend I wanted to kill."
It was a woman he dated after his short-lived first marriage. She was a drug addict, terribly unstable, and she followed Cranston to New York when he left L.A. to work on the soap opera Loving. She stalked him, leaving messages on his answering machine: "I'm gonna kill you. I'm gonna cut your balls off. I'm gonna have your dick sawed off." Finally, one day, the woman showed up at Cranston's Upper West Side apartment, banging on the door.
"And I envisioned myself killing her. It was so clear. My apartment had a brick wall on one side, and I envisioned opening the door, grabbing her by the hair, dragging her inside, and shoving her head into that brick wall until brain matter was dripping down the sides of it. Then I shuddered and realized how clearly I saw that happening. And I called the police because I was so afraid. I was temporarily insane—capable of doing tremendous damage to her and to myself."

Well, maybe Bryan got it all wrong. Maybe that was the woman's understanding of dirty sex talk. How about that?
