French actor Gerard Depardieu has expressed regret for publicly urinating on an airplane earlier this week, reports Access Hollywood.
Actor Edouard Baer, who was traveling with Depardieu during the incident, spoke to the French press on his friend’s behalf. "Gerard was upset at this and offered to clean up the mess," Baer said of the incident in a statement via the BBC.
"He has prostate problems and it was very worrying and humiliating for him," Baer continued. "He was also stone-cold sober at the time. This is not the way he usually behaves."
The actors were en route to Dublin to film “Asterix and Obelix: God Save Britannia” when Depardieu relieved himself on their Cityjet flight after being told he’d have to wait to use the restroom.
