Yet Another Peeing on Plane Story: Gerard Depardieu Edition

Back when I was in high school I took French and I seem to remember that every single French movie we ever watched had Gerard Depardieu in it. I say that to say this: Mr. Depardieu was caught urinating on a CityJet flight from Paris to Dublin on Tuesday.

Unlike me, who urinated on a plane this week, Mr. Depardieu did it in the aisle of the plane, not in the bathroom, which is where I (and every other passenger on a plane this week) decided to do it. The actor was apparently drunk.


  1. You know, I can sympathise here. The guy needed to use the lavatory, he repeatedly asked to, and was told by the crew to wait. So, he obeyed their instructions and stayed in his seat.

    A little more flexibility with regards to human needs would have avoided the whole thing. You can bet that crew member will be more inclined to let passengers use the facilities next time!

    Kudos to Mr. Depardieu, drunk or not.

  2. Anderson Cooper did a pun-filled bit on this and just. lost. it.
