I am an elephant. I have a lot of pee: Gerard Depardieu after peeing in plane aisle
London: Gerard Depardieu is said to have boasted about his peeing power after urinating in the aisle of a plane.
Depardieu, 62, was thrown off the packed flight last month for his shameless antics, but he insisted he was sober at the time.
“I am an elephant. I have a lot of pee,” the Mirror quoted him as telling a stewardess at the time.
During an interview with CNN chat show host Anderson Cooper, the French actor and filmmaker revealed that he had been ordered to return to his seat when he tried to use the toilet before take-off.
So he used an empty bottle instead to relieve himself, and the bottle overflowed on to the floor of the CityJet flight from Paris to Dublin.
“The bottle was too small. I am an elephant. I said, ‘Don’t worry, I will clean it up’,” he added.
