VIDEO: Anderson Cooper Loses It Over Gerard Depardieu Pissing on Plane Story

CNN host Anderson Cooper broke into an uncontrollable fit of giggles while reporting on the story of French actor Gérard Depardieu pissing in the aisle of a plane on Tuesday. Anderson Cooper featured Gérard Depardieu and his rogue bladder
on his “Ridiculist” segment on Wednesday.

Anderson Cooper couldn’t resist pulling out the bad puns while talking about Gérard Depardieu deciding to cut loose and urinate all over the floor of a plane cabin after his Paris-to-Dublin flight was delayed. Cooper said the “thes-pee-in” had “created his own jet stream” and wondered if the actor “flies Incontinental.”

Barely able to contain himself throughout all this, Anderson Cooper finally broke down in giggles after he called the actor “Depar-doo” and said Depardieu plane misadventure was his “No. 1 role.” Cooper collapsed into laughter, wiping his eyes and nearly breaking into snorts.

As for the subject of Cooper’s laughing fit on CNN, Gérard Depardieu is sorry for pissing all over the plane. His travel companion, French actor Edouard Baer, told Europe 1 radio that Depardeiu attempted to piss into a bottle because he couldn’t wait any longer to go to the restroom, but the bottle was too small and urine overflowed on the floor.

“It was naturally very embarrassing and humiliating for him. He didn’t do any grand gestures and shout: ‘I’m going to piss’. Whatever the larger-than-life nature of my friend Gérard, no one is that crazy,” Baer said.

Gerard Depardieu Pisses in Plane Cabin

French actor Gerard Depardieu apparently got pissed off when a flight attendant refused to let him go to the bathroom while his flight was waiting to take off. So, either unwilling or unable to wait, he decided to piss ON the carpet right instead — right there in the cabin in front of all the passengers.

According to a passenger on the CityJet flight from Paris to Dublin, Gerard Depardieu, 62, asked a flight attendant to let him use the restroom when the plane was delayed for takeoff. “Je veux pisser, je veux pisser,” he reportedly told the stewardess.

The attendant them allegely told the French actor he would have to wait fifteen more minutes until the plane was in flight and the bathrooms were unlocked.

So, Depardieu promptly unzipped his pants, pulled out his equipment and pissed all over the carpet of the plane. The witness to the incident claims it was obvious “he’d been drinking,” according to the New York Post.

As a result of Depardieu using the carpet of the plane as his personal restroom, the flight had to return to the gate to be cleaned up. CityJet has confirmed the incident occurred but has not said what action was or would be taken against the actor.

“I will only confirm that he, in effect, urinated in the plane,” a spokeswoman for the Air France-KLM subsidiary said in a press statement.

The airline was a bit less formal in a statement on Twitter posted after the incident. “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…”
