French film star Gérard Depardieu just couldn’t wait any longer, or didn’t want to.
While waiting for takeoff aboard a delayed flight from Paris to Dublin last night, the 62-year-old actor apparently needed to use the bathroom, but the plane’s crew wouldn’t let him. As a result, Depardieu decided to relieve himself right there in the plane’s cabin, much to the dismay of other passengers.
Fox News reports that one of the passengers who witnessed the incident, Daniele, spoke to a French radio station about Depardieu’s antics.
After Derpardieu supposedly announced “Je veux pisser, je veux pisser,” “the attendant said ‘I’m sorry, you’ll have to wait fifteen minutes, [when] we’ll be in flight. The toilets are locked,’” Daniele said, adding that it appeared as if the actor had been drinking.
Depardieu, however, didn’t wait, and the Air France jet had to return to the gate for an additional 2 hours to clean us his mess.
It is not yet known whether the airlines will take legal action against the actor, who is was on his way to work on the film Asterix and Obelix: God Save Britannia.
