French actor Gerard Depardieu owns his own winery, so it’s natural for him to indulge in some vino — often.
But often is an understatement for the “My Father the Hero” actor, who told French magazine So Film that he can drink about 14 bottles of wine. A day.
“I can’t drink like a normal person,” Depardieu told the magazine. “I can absorb 12, 13, 14 bottles ... per day. But I’m never totally drunk, just a little pissed. All you need is a 10 minute nap and voilà, a slurp of rosé wine and I feel as fresh as a daisy!”
Depardieu‘s drinking habits are no secret — he made headlines in 2011 when he drunkenly peed on the floor of an airplane.
Never miss a local story.
And despite undergoing bypass surgery, the actor doesn’t seem worried about his health.
“I have to be careful, [but] I’m not going to die,” he said. “Not now. I still have energy.”
A word to Depardieu: You may have energy now, but not so fast. Fourteen bottles of wine a day does not keep the doctor away.
And don’t forget that alcohol poisoning can quickly turn those intoxicating bottles into grapes of wrath.
