Gerard Depardieu

URINATION EXPLANATION

I Offered to 'Clean Up the Mess'

8/19/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gerard Depardieu is finally explaining why he peed on the floor of an Air France plane this week ... blaming the whole thing on prostate issues ... but insisting he "offered to clean up the mess."

Gerard's traveling companion on the flight, Edouard Baer, has released a statement on Depardieu's behalf, saying, "[Gerard] has prostate problems and it was very worrying and humiliating for him."

Baer claims he gave Gerard a bottle to pee in while the two were on the plane ... but the bottle quickly overflowed ...and when the flight attendant refused to let the actor use the lavatory because the crew was preparing for take-off, Gerard decided to finish on the floor.

The rep insists Gerard is "upset" about the situation -- adding, "He was also stone-cold sober at the time. This is not the way he usually behaves."

Depardieu was removed from the flight -- but was placed on another plane and eventually traveled without pissing off anyone else.

On Air France, anyone can pee in 1st Class and do the other in Coach... and they will still "Let Them Eat Cake."

I thought Gerard pee'd in the airplane b/c he's a drunken lout. Classless piece of trash.

I don't believe this story--if it was true, it would have been explained at the time. He's just trying to recover from an awful experience--all his own fault. He is still a pig.

Is Gerard an alcoholic or a poor, poor victim with a prostrate problem?

Well, he is among legends... Compare his bulbous, swollen nose and red face with the legendary faces of some legendary alcoholics, including:

Babe Ruth
W.C. Fieldsj
Jimmy Hoffa
Leonid Brezhnev

They are all famous alcoholics, just like you, Gerard.

Time to strap on the Depends, sulk at home, and realize you have destroyed you body, Loser!

There are plenty of people with prostate issues that don't pee on the floor. I don't buy it.

I was on a flight recently and it was over an hour before they let people go to the restroom...I'm surprised people weren't pissing all over the plane.

This is the same guy that said he commited his first rape at the age of nine, and then went on to commit other rapes. It was normal he claimed. Wonderful guy we got right here. What a revolting pig.
