RJ Mitte Wants to Take Shots 'All Day Long' After Turning 21

Newly of age Breaking Bad actor RJ Mitte is ready to live it up.

Mitte, whose AMC series just won best drama at the Emmys on Sunday, began celebrating a little early.

Popping into the HBO Luxury Lounge in Beverly Hills on Friday with his mom, Mitte sipped on Baileys Irish Cream and was heard by an onlooker saying jokingly, "Now that I'm 21, I want shots of Baileys all day long."

Even though Mitte is the famous one, his mom didn't walk away without some VIP treatment of her own. Her son scooped up a fancy pair of earrings from Pandora jewelry for her.
