Yesterday evening, the venerable French actor boarded an Air France CityJet flight in Paris bound for Dublin. The plane was delayed on the tarmac, and Depardieu asked the flight attendant if he could get up and use the facilities.
He was told he would have to wait until after takeoff, and a miffed Depardieu responded by unzipping his pants and urinating in the aisle.
A spokeswoman for the airline was asked to make a statement and responded: “I will only confirm that he, in effect, urinated in the plane.”
The plane was then further delayed for two more hours while the crew cleaned up the mess.
