Gerard – Part Dieu.
In response to the press surrounding Gerard
Depardieu’s ‘accident’ on a plane flight to Dublin out of Paris this week, Edouard Baer, the formerly unnamed traveling companion and actor, made a statement to BBC.
Baer claimed that Depardieu, “wanted to go to the lavatory… He was barred access…So he urinated in front of everyone. I passed him a small bottle…Only it was too small so it overflowed. He wanted to clear it up, but the hostess wouldn’t let him.”
A longtime friend of the actor, Baer further defended Depardieu blaming the incident on “a dodgy prostate” and asserting that the famous actor was “stone cold sober” at the time.
The story has received national coverage with the likes of Anderson Cooper, CNN newscaster, joking yesterday that “they should thank their lucky stars it wasn’t Depar-two.”
