Gerard Depardieu was kicked off a flight to Dublin, after the French actor responded to the call of nature by peeing into a bottle and reportedly overspilling an unsteady flow of piss into the aisle.
The star of Green Card asked to use the CityJet's loo prior to take-off from Charles de Gaulle Airport, but he had been told to stay in his seat, according to the BBC.
Depardieu – who was supposed to be flying to Ireland to film Asterix and Obelix: God Save Britannia – ignored staff, stood up in the aisle and urinated into a bottle.
One passenger on the flight told a French radio station yesterday that moments before take-off the actor loudly thundered: "Je veux pisser. Je veux pisser."
The thesp promised to wipe up any wee puddle left on the aisle, following his willy-waving performance. But his offer was roundly dismissed, the plane taxied back to the terminal and Depardieu was promptly ejected from the aircraft.
Depardieu later insisted that his overwhelming need to take a slash on the flight was unrelated to any boozy sesh. He said he had downed a litre bottle of water before boarding the flight to Dublin. ®
It's not been revealed what vessel the movie star peed into. But we at Vulture Central would like to recommend the use of a Lucozade bottle, rather than, say, a beer bottle as brilliantly demonstrated in Dumb and Dumber.
