Anderson Cooper giggles on air for a minute over Depardieu pun: Watch!

We feel even closer to Anderson Cooper now that we know he enjoys potty humor, too. Naturally, Gerard Depardieu made Cooper’s RidicuList last night after news broke that the French actor had urinated in the cabin of a plane that had been delayed on the tarmac. Anderson held it together through a stream of potty puns, but absolutely lost his s— when he got to this line: “After Gerard took his little solo fight to uriNation, the plane had to turn around and go back to the gate, and some unlucky cleaning crew had to deal with the Golden Globe-winning tinkle. Now all I can say is they should thank their lucky stars it wasn’t DepardTwo.” Then, he giggled over “DepardTwo” for a solid minute, stopping only to apologize (“Sorry, that made me giggle every time I read it”) and foresee his future (“Sorry, this has actually never happened to me. You always see this sort of thing on YouTube, and you don’t think it’d actually happen to you”). Watch the YouTube clip below. The giggles hit at 2:27.

The good news, Anderson, is that it’s not like we remember these kind of moments and will take any opportunity to embed them again…Read more:

      • jen

        would you like peeing or non-peeing in the aisle on your flight? Thanks for flying Bonjour airlines

      • Yummy Anderson

      • Liz

        Nice puns!! I’m surprised that he even got through the beginning with all the other ridiculous puns in there.

  • jrs

  • jrs

    • jen

      cougar alert cougar alert

  • julia

    wow he has the weirdest laugh ever

  • Megan

    I love Cooper, but I couldn’t make it past the halfway point. I mean, who the hell wrote this? The writers of Sex and the City? THose puns were not only unfunny but childish.

    • Rob

      I love how your upset over Anderson Coopers puns and who wrote them….I guess the reason they exist is because a well-known award-given actor urinated down an aisle of his plane…THAT doesn’t merit a critique from you??? Just bad puns? How you survive on the internet is a mystery.

      • Sharman

        i think Depardieu is still in character from the movie where he played the French writer Balzac. Ha! This is just funny on so many levels. Crackin’ up here!

      • m

        I agree with Megan – the puns were pretty awful. But, the gigglefit made it worth it.

      • Tharn

        Puns are supposed to be awful. : )

        I <3 Anderson Cooper and his crazy giggle …

      • @ROB

        Rob, you need to go take remedial English classes, buddy.

    • Sharman

      The DOW is down, the price of gold is up, the price of a golden shower remains unchanged. Vive le france!

      • Sharman

        Vive la France! Just a correction. Hate it when I do that.

    • Sharman

      Lighten up, Megan! Don’t be a potty pooper! Come up with some better puns yourself!

  • crispy

    Next time someone complains that Anderson Cooper is still in the closet, I will kindly point them to this video of him giggling like a little girl.

    • anon

      he’s not in the closet- at all. his book, written several years ago, addressed that very topic.

      that said, this was the highlight of my day seeing the video of him cracking up!! not to mention very punny!

    • kathy

      Unfortunately, I think Anderson Cooper just solved the mystery … you would never have seen John Wayne giggle like this!!

      • Mellissa

        Or Rock Hudson…oh wait…shoot.

  • Michelle

    He is completely adorable.

    • JayK*

      I loved him before, but yeah, no other word but ADORABLE. I want to squish him.

  • Wolf Blitzer

    I think he just had a mental image of Gepardieu taking a dump and ordaining it a Gepar-two.

  • 4815162342

    tee hee!


    now I like him…very gay, but very real!

  • Jason

    I LOVED this. I saw it happen in real time and thought it was the cutest thing ever.

  • Jaded

    That was really pretty hilarious!

  • Lindsay

    This gave me a good chuckle at work. Loved how he pulled himself together at the end.

    • Squishmar

      I know… it got me wondering what he was thinking to himself to make himself serious again. It was very funny.

  • Kristin

    Love him!


    That was too funny. He has the cutest laugh. I enjoyed it and love Cooper.

    • Ellen

      Oh my! I hadn’t seen the whole four minute clip until now. Thanks, EW! That was even funnier than the shortened version they first showed.
