Kevin Spacey Competes With Gordon Ramsay At Cursing, And Surprisingly Wins

British chef Gordon Ramsay is known for never mincing his words. But even he seemed slightly shocked by “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey’s liberal use of curse words in a promo clip for his new show. In a video that’s fast going viral, Spacey begins by talking about his upcoming one-man play “Clarence Darrow.” But the interview soon descends into an amusing swearing contest, with Spacey eventually gaining the upper hand. “Damn, I’ve been out-fucked,” jokes Ramsay at the end. Check out the clip above, and see the full interview when “The F Word” premieres on Fox on May 31. type=type=RelatedArticlesblockTitle=Related Coverage + articlesList=5763f59ee4b0853f8bf07538,58d62f4ce4b02a2eaab46784,58dee249e4b0c777f78797aa -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
