CNN host Anderson Cooper broke into an uncontrollable fit of giggles while reporting on the story of French actor GÃ©rard Depardieu pissing in the aisle of a plane on Tuesday. Anderson Cooper featured GÃ©rard Depardieu and his rogue bladder
on his “Ridiculist” segment on Wednesday.
Anderson Cooper couldn’t resist pulling out the bad puns while talking about GÃ©rard 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, GÃ©rard 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 GÃ©rard, no one is that crazy,” Baer said.
