HE HASN’T BEEN slow to make fun of his ‘urination incident’ on board a plane to Dublin, and now Gerard Depardieu has revealed the reason for his predicament: he pees like an elephant.
The French actor made the statement during an interview with Anderson Cooper on CNN, telling him that he told the stewardess he was not a terrorist – he just had to pee.
Anderson Cooper was the TV host who lost it while making a joke about the incident on live television.
Depardieu was speaking from Ireland, where is on the set of new movie Asterix and Obelix: God Save Britannia.
He explained that he told the air stewardess on the plane that he badly needed to use the toilet, but she wouldn’t let him enter.
“I don’t understand why she blocked the door,” the actor told Anderson, saying he relieved himself in a bottle belonging to a friend.
He did admit the bottle was too small and that some of the urine landed on the floor.
His explanation for this? “I am an elephant!”
He apologised afterwards for his behaviour.
