Gerard Depardieu Says He Drinks 14 Bottles Of Wine A Day

It’s a shame Gerard Depardieu has renounced his French citizenship, because in so many ways, he’s the perfect symbol for France, a mascot, like a French Uncle Sam.

Last June he got drunk and fell off his scooter (probably cracking his baguette and smushing his satchel full of frogs in the process), and according to a recent interview, the 65-year-old says he drinks up to 14 bottles of wine a day. That kind of tolerance puts him up there with other titans of drinking like André the Giant, who was also from France. You guys? Maybe we should move to France.
