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.
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 rightÂ 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…”
