Gerard Depardieu - Gerard Depardieu's Evian Bottle Was 'Too Small'

Gerard Depardieu 's travelling companion has claimed the actor's in-flight urination was down to prostrate problems and the fact that his empty bottle of water was "too small". The French actor reportedly urinated down the aisle of a plane bound for Dublin on Wednesday (16th August 2011), reports the UK's Daily Telegraph.
Early indications suggested Depardieu was drunk and became rude to airline staff, although his travelling companion has claimed otherwise. French actor Edouard Baer said his friend had no choice but to urinate on-board, saying, "(He) 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". The acting duo play Asterix and Obelix in the forthcoming movie 'Asterix: God Save Britannia', currently being shot in Ireland. Edouard continued, "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". According to the actor, Depardieu was "stone cold sober" at the time of the incident and was also feeling the effects of his "dodgy prostate".
Gerard Depardieu is best known for his Academy Award nominated performance in the 1990 movie 'Cyrano de Bergerac'.
