Hugh Jackman knows how Gerard Depardieu feels -- well, sort of.

Depardieu peed on the carpet of an Air France plane in front of passengers after the cabin crew asked him to wait 15 minutes to use the restrooms. Jackman told Rachael Ray in an interview airing on her show today that he also urinated in front of a crowd -- only he was onstage playing Gaston in a 1996 Australian production of "Beauty and the Beast."

Jackman, 42, said after having headaches for two months, he followed the advice of a psychic and drank more water. On the day of his performance, he drank so much that by the time he was to perform his first number he needed to use the bathroom.

"Literally, I'm picking up Belle and as I pick her up, I stopped singing, and right in that moment I realized the muscles you need to release in order to sing are the ones you do not want to release if you need to go," the actor told Ray.

After wetting his pants in front of the audience, Jackman had to forgo the number.

"I'm carrying her [over one shoulder] not singing, and she's going 'What's going on? What's going on?' So finally, it's embarrassing at this point," he tells Ray. "I've not sung an entire verse."

Ted Danson

Ted Danson, the newest member of "CSI," admitted to Conan O'Brien in 2001 that he's got a gas problem.

Danson blamed it on his vegan diet. Meanwhile, he outed his "Cheers" co-star Woody Harrelson as a fellow flatulence sufferer.

Jennifer Garner

"Alias" star Jennifer Garner revealed to Parade magazine last year how her husband, Ben Affleck, wooed her by email, saying he was a "very persuasive" writer.

She added that the actor-director is "sexy and kind, but he's also a riot. We can be very goofy together." With two kids and their first boy on the way, Garner also explained how the couple steal away together: "You steal a date, you steal a kiss, you steal a whisper."

Turns out her pillowtalk confessions were a little embarrassing for Affleck, who was repeatedly asked about them while promoting his last film, "The Company Men."

John Stamos

When actor John Stamos outed his unusually large belly button on Conan O'Brien in 2007, he quickly earned the online title of "weirdest belly button" and a Facebook following under "John Stamos' belly button."

On Comedy Central's "Free Radio" two years later he set the record straight while showing a sense of humor about the whole thing. Stamos explained that his overly large "outie" was a result of a hernia operation when he was a kid. "It looks like a small ... nose," he said. "It's horrible."

"Free Radio" host Lance replied, "It looks like a mutated milk dud."

Kate Beckinsale

During a 2006 appearance on the "Tonight Show," actress Kate Beckinsale confessed that she was a breastfeeding champ.

"I do sort of miss breastfeeding. I was very good at it. I've got, like, many useless talents. ... I think I got more [bigger breasts] than my share," she told Jay Leno. "Breastfeeding is like [when] you call up a pizza and, if you call it up a lot, 27 pizzas arrive. That's what I was like. I could hit the wall from quite a distance."

Seth Rogen

In another late-night confession, funny man Seth Rogen told Conan O'Brien the embarrassing way he popped the question to his girlfriend Lauren Miller -- while she was topless.

"She was in our closet, changing, and she was literally only in her underpants. I had already kind of started [to propose]. ... I didn't picture it like this, and I know she didn't picture it like this," Rogen revealed.

Angelina Jolie

The queen of confessors of embarrassing moments has to be Angelina Jolie -- at least before she hooked up with Brad Pitt.

While she was with ex Billy Bob Thornton, she admitted they wore vials of each other's blood around their necks. He told "ET" they wore each other's underwear when they were apart.

Jolie has also revealed an early fascination with death and funeral preparation, knives and cutting herself for sexual lure.
