Gerard Depardieu has claimed he shot two lions in self-defence and then ate them whilst in Africa, according to reports.
The French actor said the incident took place in 2011 when the car he was travelling in broke down in Burkina Faso.
He made the initial extraordinary boast in September to a French film magazine and claimed he can drink 14 bottles of wine a day, but now appears to have confirmed them to the Independent Magazine in the UK.
Asked if he ate the creatures after they were killed, he said "Yes."
He said: "The two lions waited in front of us and wouldn't move. Hours passed, we couldn't get out of the car, the African driver was very afraid. "We had no choice, we had to shoot them."
