Gerard Depardieu delays flight by urinating in plane




Fat French actor Gerard Depardieu acted like a real jerk Tuesday evening when he stood up in the aisle of an airplane and urinated in front of all the other passengers. You remember that guy; He's the one from those movies from the '90s like Green Card and 1492: Conquest of Paradise.

The 63-year-old allegedly boarded an Air France flight from Paris to Dublin and announced "I need to piss, I need to piss" as the plane taxied to the runway before takeoff. "An air hostess told him he's had to wait 15 minutes until we were in the air and he could leave his seat," a passenger told the U.K.'s Daily Mail. "She told him there was nothing she could do until then and that he would have to hold it in."

But there was something he could do: "He replied that he couldn't wait, then he just stood up and urinated on the floor." The plane had to return to the gate and be cleaned, delaying the flight two hours. And just imagine, he only came in third behind Carla Bruni and Alain Delon as France's most irritating celebrity in a 2010 poll.
