Gérard Depardieu took time out of his busy schedule — which lately seems to involve spewing a lot of miserable comments about fellow star Juliette Binoche — to piss all over an airplane floor. The French film star couldn’t cross his legs long enough before taking off on a flight from Paris to Dublin. The reportedly drunk actor was asked to stay in his seat and fasten his seatbelt, but according to The Local, the Green Card star exclaimed, “I want to piss, I want to piss!” Depardieu was told by a stewardess to wait 15 minutes, because the bathrooms would be opened again then. Instead, Depardieu took a leak on the floor.
“We could see he had been drinking. The stewardess was dumbfounded. No one said anything. It all happened with courtesy. Mr Depardieu sat back down and the plane returned to the parking area to be cleaned,” one witness said. This isn’t the first time Depardieu has had issues holding his liquor — he was convicted of drunk driving in 1990.
Airline CityJet had a sense of humor about the situation. After the incident, they Tweeted, “As you may have seen on the news, we are busy mopping the floor of one of our planes this morning … We’d also like to remind all passengers that our planes are fully equipped with toilet facilities … ” Keep it classy CityJet!
