When You Gotta Go: Gerard Depardieu Urinates at His Seat on Airline

By , Editor
France's best loved actor Gerard Depardieu -- and by the way, WTF about that -- was taking off from Paris to Dublin on a CityJet plane today when he heard the call of nature. Since the seatbelt light was on, the attendant asked him to wait the 15 minutes until the plane was in the air; but Depardieu, clearly inebriated, shouted "I want to piss. I want to piss," and did his business right there on the spot.

Well, who wouldn't be?

"The passenger refused to remain in his seat. It was the captain’s decision it was best to return the plane to the stand," a CityJet spokeswoman said. The flight was delayed for one hour and 15 minutes.

Perhaps the 62 year-old is having prostate issues.
