An Oscar-nominated actor reportedly relieved himself in front of passengers on an airplane Tuesday night after being told he had to wait to use the toilet, USA Today reports.

French actor Gerard Depardieu, 62, was on a CityJet flight from Paris to Dublin that was on the tarmac during a flight delay when the incident occurred. He reportedly urinated in the cabin after being denied permission to use the facilities.

A spokesman for CityJet, a subsidiary of Air France-KLM, said, “I will only confirm that he, in effect, urinated in the plane.”

The airline reportedly follwed the incident with a Twitter post, saying: “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 was unknown whether action was being taken against Depardieu. The actor was nominated for an Oscar for Cyrano de Bergerac in 1991.

  1. Hey, he’s 62. Sometimes you really really do have to go. At that age, it edges closer to a medical condition. We all fly and so have no doubt that he was denied access to the toilet. That said, all need to remember that the airline is only required to tell you to stay in your seat, but you can still get up to go (except when approaching DC).
