(Newser) – Just call him Gerard Depard-ewwwww: A fellow passenger on the French actor's Paris-to-Dublin flight says the plane was delayed almost two hours after Depardieu urinated on the floor before takeoff. Depardieu looked drunk and said "I need to piss, I need to piss," the woman told France's Europe-1 radio. When told to remain seated, the woman says "he stood up and did it (urinated) on the ground." An airline spokesperson confirmed the series of events and said the passenger—whom she would not name—was escorted off the plane, the AP reports.
