Gerard Depardieu

URINATION EXPLANATION

I Offered to 'Clean Up the Mess'

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.

@ Cujeaux...cats have 7 lives, true. But God also gave us 20 stories high balconies...just wish to see if you manage to flip over at the right time. And hope the last one was your number 6.

It's relaxing to take a whiz in a bottle on an airplane. :)

I suspect if he was on any carrier other than Air France, he would have been kicked off and jailed. I don't care if he offer to clean it up he is disgusting. Pity the poor fellow travelers on his flight.

My father in law had trouble holding his bladder after his prostate was removed. In situations where you know you may be away from a potty you wear a depends or a thing that fits over your penis to catch the urine. AND you don't drink too much. What goes in must come out!

What do all of you great Americans who got their "no surprise, he's French" lines in have to say about your fine fellow countryman Robert "Sandy" Vietze, the pride of Vermont, who was arrested for urinating on a 12-year-old girl? Aboard an airplane? Any comments on that?
