You might want to avoid ever getting into a drinking contest with Gerard Depardieu.
The French-born actor said in a recent interview that he drinks at least 14 bottles of wine every day without feeling drunk.
Depardieu, who has crashed his scooter while over the limit and been accused of being drunk and disruptive aboard a flight, said he remains “fresh as a daisy” after drinking.
The star of Green Card and Cyrano de Bergerac told French magazine So Film he binges on wine, champagne, beer and aniseed liqueur pastis.
“I can’t drink like a normal person,” he said. “I can absorb 12, 13, 14 bottles per day.
“In the morning, it starts at home with champagne or red wine before 10am, then again champagne.
“Then food, accompanied by two bottles of wine.
“In the afternoon, champagne, beer and more pastis at around 5pm, to finish off the bottle.”
Depardieu, who has also had a quintuple heart bypass operation and runs his own highly-rated vineyard, added: “Later on, vodka and/or whisky.
“But I’m never totally drunk, just a little p*****d. All you need is a 10-minute nap and voila, a slurp of rose wine and I feel as fresh as a daisy.”
