Gerard Depardieu created quite a scene on a CityJet flight from Paris to Dublin on Tuesday, reports AOL Travel.
A flight attendant told the French actor that he would have to wait to use the bathroom until after takeoff. So he just relieved himself on the plane's carpet. No biggie!
Another passenger went to French radio station Europe 1 with her eyewitness account of the urination, saying a visibly drunk Depardieu repeatedly asked to use the bathroom, but was told to wait 15 minutes.
"And then he did it on the floor..." the witness said. "No one said anything. It all happened with courtesy."
After the actor peed on the floor, the plane had to turn right back around and return to the gate, where a crew reportedly spent two hours cleaning up the peed-on plane.
A CityJet spokesman confirmed the incident to Agence France, but did not say whether Depardieu was kicked off the flight.
