Ben Affleck sat down with Jay Leno Thursday night and told a story about 3-year-old daughter Violet's introduction to a German swear word.

On to promote "State of Play," Affleck recounted taking Violet out for lunch at a Mexican restaurant and having her spill their drinks all over the table. As he jumped up and started to say "SHIT" he caught himself at the "SH" and instead yelped "SHEISSE," German for shit.

He then imitated Violet asking what it meant and repeating it over and over, louder and louder, as the restaurant looked on. WATCH:
