Tough-talking SOPRANOS star Drea de Matteo has her Great Dane's testicles in a jar by her bed.

The actress couldn't bear the thought of her dog's genitals being tossed in the trash after his neutering operation, so she insisted on taking them home.

She says, "They're like eggs. I neutered him when he was five and that was his manhood. They were going to throw them in the garbage, so I brought a little thing of formaldehyde with me and put some blue food dye in it because he's a blue Great Dane."
