Gerard Depardieu is an Academy Award-nominated and Golden Globe-winning actor known for his work in Cyrano de Bergerac, Green Card and The Man in the Iron Mask. And when he’s gotta go, he’s gotta go.
Tuesday night, on a flight from Paris to Dublin, Depardieu suffered a bout of impatience and reportedly urinated in the aisle of his plane.
According to witnesses, the actor made it known that he needed to pee, yelling “I need to piss, I need to piss.” Those entreats fell on deaf ears, as the crew asked him to wait 15 minutes for the sealbelt light to turn off.
Depardieu apparently couldn’t wait, so he proceeded to pull out an empty bottle and attempt to pee in it. His aim was off, however, and he ended up making a mess in the aisle of the plane.
As you might expect, alcohol was involved.
That’s where Anderson Cooper comes in. The usually serious CNN anchor discussed the incident on last night’s “Ridiculist” segment on his nightly show. The segment is laced with puns, and Cooper couldn’t handle it. Watch as he tries to hold himself together but is overcome by the end with uncontrollable giggling.
“They saw an actual thespian, actually thesPEEin.” Who can keep their composure with lines like that?
As mentioned in the clip, the airline company involved in the incident, CityJet, tweeted about it last night –
As you may have seen on the news, we are busy mopping the floor of one of our planes this morning…
We’d also like to remind all passengers that our planes are fully equipped with toilet facilities…
It’s always viral gold when News anchors, especially ones like Anderson Cooper, lose it on air. Could you have kept your composure reporting on such a ridiculous incident?
