Depardieu drinks 14 bottles of wine a day

gerard_depardieuFrench wine consumption has been declining for the past fifty years. But one man seems to be taking it upon himself to single-handedly reverse this trend: Gerard Depardieu.

The Frenchman-turned-ruski told the British site So Film, “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!” He added.

He’s not likely to run out of wine since Depardieu owns Chateau de Tigne in Anjou. He once joked that his mother’s amniotic fluid was wine.

  1. “I can absorb 12, 13, 14 bottles…per day” I guess that’s a fancy way to say I’m an alcoholic 😉


  2. Judging by his jacket size and number of chins I think “absorbed” is indeed the correct verb to use there.


  3. Yeah, sounds like he was pulling the journalist’s chain. Even 14 *glasses* a day would be a lot.
