We were so grossed out when we heard about Gerard Depardieu peeing in a plane cabin!
Who could have imagined! This definitely goes down in embarrassing celebrity moment history.
Baer took to a radio interview to explain the story:
Gérard Depardieu wanted to go to the lavatory. He was barred access. We were not far off taking off, so he urinated in front of everyone. I passed him a small bottle. He couldn't wait, so I found this solution. I had a little Evian bottle with me, only it was too small so it overflowed He wanted to clear it up, but the hostess wouldn't let him. It was naturally very embarrassing and humiliating for him. He didn't do any grand gestures and shout: 'I'm going to piss'. Whatever the larger-than-life nature of my friend Gérard, no one is that crazy.
Baer continued, citing health problems for the cause:
No one is flattered to have a dodgy prostate and be obliged to urinate. But the [flight attendant] panicked and said the plane must stay on the tarmac. I stopped him because he wanted to go and explain to the crew, he was sorry and he was furious but didn't lose his temper.
Baer wasn't the only one commenting on the incident, though.
City Jet made a couple of funnies about it on Twitter:
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…
Damn, professional airline company! We have to admit, that's pretty funny, but…damn!
