London: Model-turned-actress Elizabeth Hurley's says her pet parrot didn't learn using foul words from her.
The 46-year-old's parrot, a blue fronted Amazonian breed named Ping Pong, can replicate human speech and uses naughty words.
"She's started to say the f word which she learnt from her pet shop days. They have this weird retentive memory where they hear something and sit on it for months before repeating it. Two days ago she suddenly said: ‘Happy Christmas!,’ Hurley said.
The actress recently said she was jealous of her feathered friend after she was featured in one of British magazine.
"Ping Pong insufferably smug; she has a whole page dedicated to her in October's supplement. She does look awfully sweet in the pic (sic)," Hurley tweeted.
The bird has her own twitter page with over 5,000 followers, and previously admitted to having a crush on Elizabeth's boyfriend, former Australian cricketer Shane Warne.
