French actor Gerard Depardieu has apologized for urinating on the floor of an airplane on the ground in Paris after a flight attendant instructed him to take his seat.
In a statement issued on Depardieu's behalf to French media, actor Edouard Baer -- who was traveling with him on the flight -- said he had passed the Green Card star a bottle in which to urinate, but it had overflowed.
"He has prostate problems and it was very worrying and humiliating for him.
"He was also stone-cold sober at the time. This is not the way he usually behaves."
The Golden Globe winning Depardieu, 62, was removed from the plane and caught a later flight to Dublin, where he, and Baer, are shooting a movie, Asterix and Obelix: God Save Britannia.
