Gerard Depardieu publicly pees on a plane

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.

Depardieu, 62, has a history of drunken antics. In 2009, the actor beat up a car, smashing in the windshield with his bare fist. In 1990 he was convicted of drunk driving.

    Well that's embarrassing. Anyhow, whether its a urine problem, or any kind of water disaster. The restoration pros of New Orleans will get the job done.

    This is why I ride Southwest. They prefer for your and everyone else's safety that you stay in your seat when the seatbelt sign is on. But if you need to go, they won't insist you stay, they'll let you go if you really need to. If they had let him go, and maybe helped him reach the bathroom, much could have been avoided. He wasn't thinking clearly (he was drunk, after all) and had to go. You can get nasty infections from 'holding in' urine. I think the staff could've handled the situation better.

    So once again, a non-event allows a thousand of empty commentaries. As we all know All Frenchmen drink, all american guys are just a bunch of crazy killers wanna rule the world etc. etc. Just a collection of old racist clichés. Man, some of You should step in the XXIst century ! Depardieu is known for his pranks, but also to be a good actor. You have the right to like him or not,and anyway what you think does not matter to him I guess. Or maybe you should all just go burn a candle to your next door church because THIS is a sign of God, that soon will be the end of the World ! Depardieu translates literally in english to "From & By God" .
    Seriously guys, Gérard has no excuses. And so have some of you! Especially coming from people who once elected a former (non)anonymous alcoholic for president !Everybody knows the rest of the story!
    This item is just good enough to be mentioned on next Jay (fait pipi) Leno or Conan (the instructor) O'brien.
    I like you so much, Americanos (yeah I guess that is the way we should call you since there are less and less english speakers in this ruined country), you are sometimes so naives!

    Sometimes you just have to go. Glad the crew had to scrub the plane. Maybe they will think twice denying passengers the use of the bathroom when they evidently have to go. Given the time it takes to board the plane, taxi, and wait for take-off, having to wait 15 more minutes after take-off can just be too long when you really have to go. Fortunately, most crews are more understanding of basic human needs.

    ROTFLOL...., though seriously peeing on the rug is something even my dog has learned not to do. Maybe he shouldn't get so drunk, and then he'd be okay. Or perhaps, this is just what is proper in Paris today: whip it out and accost some maid in a hotel room; whip it out and pee on a plane. I guess it just comes with always listening to the "little head" instead of the big one....

    He probably could have taken the magazines out of the little seat-pouch on the seat in front of him and peed in there. That would have been more stealthy. Or he should have gotten up and gone to the flight attendant's area where they have the vcr for those crappy movies they always play and he should have peed in the vcr. Then not only would he be stealthy, he'd also save everyone from having to watch Inspector Gadget 2, or the Smurfs movie or whatever garbage they play nowadays.

    I see a lot of really stupid remarks and poor jokes here, as usual. But seriously, these days, when charged $3 for a tiny bottle of water, I drink before I get on a plane because it is important to be well hydrated. If not, I cough. But if a flight is unduly held up for take-off, sometimes the need occurs. The attendants are walking around, and I have almost fought with some of them for the right to go to the bathroom when I am supposed to be sitting. 15 minutes can be eternity. As a woman, I do not really have the male luxury of 'whipping it out', nor do I wish to do so. But as disgusting as this story is, it really does have a serious side.

    It's not mind over matter – or in this case mind over bladder. Even though he was alledgedly "drunk", he still had the presence of mind to ask more than once to go pee. It would have made more sense to delay the flight for 5 minutes while he whizzed!

A few of these are still extant, but alas, my great 10-year-old masterpiece a lengthy sequel to the first Star Wars movie in 1977 is not. I dreamt it, I wrote it out, and I spent a couple of weeks typing it up during recess on the classroom typewriter. Then I mailed it off to George Lucas. (It did not become one of the sequels (or prequels).)I sure would love to read it again, but unless Mr. Lucas saved a copy, it's gone.

    The airline if the doors were locked should have provided him with a bucket and privacy in the back of the plane. Some people for various reasons need to go now. I know when my father got chemo he was that way. He couldn't wait to get to the next freeway exit. He had to go now and he did right in the middle of the freeway.

    If you're a guy with a weak bladder, bring a pee bottle such as an empty wide-mouth Gatorade bottle. You can do your business discreetly. Use a large one because you can't stop mid-flow.

    Either he is getting too old to hold his bladder for 15 minutes or because of his dementia he forgot to pee before getting on the flight – or maybe perhaps he is just a swine. I am sure all the other people on the flight enjoyed this little stunt and the lovely odour and having to go back to the airport and wait hours to get on another flight because Gerard couldn't wait 15 minutes to go. He and Dominique Strauss- Kahn are true ambassadors for the culture and refined manners of the French. Or would that be arrogance, not manners?

    Since they were recognized in 1997, :"chemtrails", the name for the program to pervert the planet's atmosphere by doping it with chemicals, to make weather manipulation for military purposes easier, has presided over innumerably many unprecedented dramatic changes in the world's weather. Tornadoes forming where they weren't known before, such as Brooklyn; the largest year-to-year drop in Arctic sea ice cover; wind chill having to be recalculated to reflect earth's air having the ability to hold more heat than it used to; bees disappearing; glaciers disappearing; record breaking hundred degree heat waves from London to Siberia; the most active, most violent hurricane season on record; the development of "super derechos", unprecedented hundred mile per hour straight line wind storms; and the development of the first new cloud species to be recognized in fifty years, the undulatus aspiratus.

    Among the most egregious results of chemtrails, though, was the earth's atmosphere apparently losing the ability to support aircraft. It took the form, about five or six years ago, of three week or so spates in which airplane crashes were an everyday or every other day event, separated by spans of a few months. Over time, the periods of crashes got longer and the spans between them shortened. Now, it seems, unnatural air is present everywhere over the planet in patches. To avoid encounters with patches of aberrant air, airlines go to enormous lengths to prevent them. "Accidents", "malfunctions" and "incidents" on the tarmac, delaying flight are occurring in unprecedented numbers. Never before was it reported that planes were delayed in taking off because of lines of turtles crossing the airfield, a pilot refusing to fly because passengers had imam garb on; a pilot refusing to fly because passengers had bagy jeans before their waist on; or a pilot suddenly realizing she didn't want to fly with a part she knew before was damaged and hadn't been repaired. "Delays" and "cancellations" are at unheard of levels. And "malufunctions:", "accidents" and "incidents" in the air, necessaitating "diversions" around unnatural patches of atmosphere are equally unnaturally frequent. Airlines will do anything to avoid encountering this unnatural air, even if they have to have a flight "overshoot its destination" because the pilots were "pre-occupied". The incident with the urinating in the cabin is lijewise unprecedented and "
    convenient" to "justify" delaying take off. Until an area of dangerous atmosphere had passed by.

    If this is allowed to continue, soon, nothing will be able to fly, except for non-aerodynamic triangular and diamond shaped military drones being reported.

      TL:DR Wow. That's the longest reply to an article about a French actor peeing on a plane I have ever read. I'm amazed at how worked up people get about someone they don't know. There are several mitigating factors here. 1. He was drunk. 2. He's French. 3. He seems to have a problem with the sauce. 4. He's French. 5. You try to hold it when you have to go something fierce and are drunk. 6. He's French. Only issue I can see is that they didn't make him clean it up and fine him because he delayed the flight with his actions.

    Grab some paper towels, blot and done. The copious amount of alcohol had probably sterilized everything anyway

      Why did my computer raomndly turned off on me? Click for more details.?It is a computer (not a laptop).This is the second time its happened.It is not even a year old and works fine.When it turned off, it wasn't the power.The screen was still working when it turned off.I turned the computer on a few seconds after it turned off raomndly, and it's working fine again.SYS. Temperature: 27 degrees CelsiusCPU temp.: 107 degrees CelsiusI have the latest Norton Anti-virus installed.I haven't had any other problems like pop-ups or freezes or anything.I do have a lot of games and programs installed, but I still have a lot of memory.The computer is used alot, at least half the day, but afterwards gets turned off for the whole night.Could it be the heat? a hacker? Other suggestions please?PS I was watching Lost both times it turned off. Could this be a Dharma conspiracy?Wait now that I looked it up, max CPU temperatures aren't supposed to run that high, are they?After about 20 minutes of being turned on right after it shut off raomndly, the CPU temp is 54 C, and SYS temp 26.Did I read the temperature wrong before? Is it possible it was 107 degrees C? Could that be the reason it shut off?lol the Dharma conspiracy was more of an inside joke to the people who watch the show Lost. Disregard it if you don't watch the show.hmmm my room does get dusty alot for some reason I'm going to go take a look at the inside and clean the fans out. Thanks for the suggestions.

      Maybe airlines should pack on a portable plastic urinal bottle for Big Stars About to Douse the Aisle and Dismay Their Fellow Passengers. It could have a big star on it, and be covered in glitter. Then they could let him hold the bottle until it's safe to remove his seatbelt...

    Utterly crazy! A drunk man is so ripped he pees on a plane and doesn't realize he's peeing on a little girl and his life is ruined, but a movie star is so drunk he whips it out and pees on a plane - possibly inf ront of children; it's not mentioned - and it's all courteous...and you people think it's funny???? What a friggin double standard!

    This is not such a joke.

    There are times when you HAVE to go and the attendants refuse to allow you.

    And this is not just for a few minutes but for twenty minutes or more.

    People do not have the capacity to hold for that long.

    Many years ago I was on my way across Texas in a small prop plane! Before takeoff I'd consumed quite a bit of tea & half way through the flight my bladder was about to burst! I was so desperate I kept pointing out good Emergency Landing sites to the pilot! I was like: "That looks like a good level field, can we Pleeese set down there!"The pilot ignored my requests!He had no intentions of crashlanding just for my seriously expanded bladder! I finally grabbed the "airsick"bag & was about to use it, when we landed at an airport to refuel! I made it to the bathroom & spent about 15 min. just relieving my bladder! My eyeballs were definitely drowning! I was not drunk,but would have Happily peed publicly on a plane because when you gotta go you gotta go! Lesson: never consume copious amounts of liquids pre-flight, gravity makes the need for relief 100 X worse than on solid ground! I feel Gerards pain, LMAO!! 😀

    That just goes to prove he's as disgusting and inconsiderate as I've always thought he was. "No one said anything. It all happened with courtesy." How is peeing in front of other people, on a public plane owned by someone other than yourself "courtesy"??? Someone has a warped sense of what courtesy is. Courtesy would have been him sitting down when he was asked and waiting just a few moments, instead of doing something that caused the plane to turn around and delay the flight for 2 hours while some poor people had to clean up HIS MESS! JERK!
