In his widely acclaimed Anderson Cooper 360 show, Cooper almost came to tears last night when he attempted to explain an incident that happened on Tuesday involving famous French actor Gerard Depardieu.
According to reports, Depardieu was aboard an Air France flight to Dublin and could not control himself and urinated on the floor.
Passengers described the Golden Globe-winning actor as drunk and said when the cabin crew asked him to wait until the plane took off to use the restroom the 62-year-old actor responded with, “I need to p*ss, I need to p*ss.”
He proceeded to unzip his pants and urinate on the floor.
Anderson Cooper attempted to describe the situation and the impact that it may have on Depardieu’s career on his Anderson Cooper 360 segment “The RidicuList."
The four-minute segment was chockfull of puns and in Depardieu-like fashion, Cooper couldn’t control his laughter.
He attempted to offer his own explanation as to why the incident went down saying that, “As a celebrity he is not accustomed to being told he can’t do things he wants to do when he wants to do them, things like going to the bathroom. He’s probably used to being pampered. In fact I would go so far as to say he depends on it,” with pictures of "Pampers" diapers and "Depends" adult Incontinence products popping up on the screen.
He continued with, “This incident is likely to go down as his number one role.”
However, Cooper, who was giggling throughout the segment, lost it when it he said, “They should thank their lucky stars it wasn’t Depar-deux.”
Cooper wasn’t the only person to make light of the incident either.
CityJet, the company that was operating the Tuesday evening flight, tweeted yesterday that they had been “busy mopping the floor” all morning and added, “We’d also like to remind all passengers that our planes are fully equipped with toilet facilities.”
