Oct. 14, 2011— -- intro: 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."

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."
