Oh! Gerard Depardieu!

Shame, shame. In today’s embarassing French celebrity news, famous actor, winemaker and convicted drunk driver Gerard Depardieu held up a flight because… well… he just couldn’t hold it.

France 24 reports that the 62-year-old actor just didn’t want to wait for a flight from Paris to Dublin to take off. The man had to pee, and he had to pee NOW.

“When a stewardess asked him to sit and wait 15 minutes until the jet took off and reached cruising altitude, he said he could not wait. ‘And there and then he stood up and did it on the floor,’ she told the French broadcaster.

‘We could see he had been drinking. The stewardess was dumbfounded,’ she added. ‘No-one said anything. It all happened with courtesy. Mr Depardieu sat back down and the plane returned to the parking area to be cleaned.’

No word on whether the actor, who has appeared in over 200 films, will face charges over the embarassing incident. Maybe reading about it in the papers will be enough punishment.

UPDATE: This is CNN’s Anderson Cooper absolutely losing it while reporting on Depardieu’s scandal.
