Creator of the hit AMC series “Breaking Bad,” which won 10 Primetime Emmy awards in its five seasons, has revealed one tiny regret about the popular series that concluded last year: Jesse Pinkman’s pearly whites.

“I wish Jesse’s teeth had been a little more realistic, a little more messed up,” Vince Gilligan told Entertainment Weekly. ”Aaron Paul has perfect teeth, and Jesse Pinkman, on the other hand smoked a lot of meth, and that smoke eats the enamel right off of teeth.”

“And furthermore, this poor kid got beat up two or three times a season [laughs], and his teeth were still absolutely perfect,” he said. “So if we could’ve done a little something to them… But on the other hand, Aaron is such a good-looking guy that maybe that counts as poetic license that we kept his teeth looking nice.”

Pinkman, a drug-addicted meth cooker, was played in the show by Aaron Paul, an Idaho-born actor who has also had roles in “Big Love” and “Point Pleasant.”
