French acting legend Gérard Depardieu shocked fellow passengers by urinating in the aisle as his Dublin-bound plane sat on the tarmac in Paris.

The 62-year-old "Green Card" star's Tuesday CityJet flight was delayed when he asked to use the restroom. Told he had to wait, the furious Frenchman relieved himself on the spot, reported People magazine.

"I will only confirm that he, in effect, urinated in the plane," a spokeswoman for the Air France-KLM subsidiary told AFP.

CityJet tweeted a quip about the incident Wednesday morning.

"As you may have seen on the news, we are busy mopping the floor of one of our planes this morning," the airline wrote. "We'd also like to remind all passengers that our planes are fully equipped with toilet facilities."

Depardieu's pissy fit only brought more delays: The plane had to return to the gate and was delayed for two more hours for cleaning.

The incident brought to mind a similar one earlier this month, in which 18-year-old Olympic ski hopeful Robert "Sandy" Vietze urinated in the cabin of a JetBlue flight to New York
