The Day The Pope Said "S**t"!

The Day The Pope Said "S**t"!

At last night's very special screening of Nanni Moretti's We Have a Pope -- with Michel Piccoli as a cardinal who's voted pope and isn't sure he wants the job -- Moretti told us about the taxing shooting hours that put the cast and crew through both the agony and the ecstasy.

He said they'd shoot from 7 p.m. till 6 in the morning, and then he'd want to keep going, to get some close-ups of Piccoli.

Well, after this strenuous routine was carried out a few times, the famed French actor exploded like a pope at the end of his rope.

"This is enough!" he shouted, letting loose.

"I want to leave this place because cinema is a shit job and I want to return to reality!"

Onlookers must have been startled to see a man in holy garb yelling "shit"!

But the true verdict on his behavior came the next day, when Moretti called his 14-year-old son to tell him about Piccoli's fit of pique.

Replied the kid:

"Wonderful Piccoli!"

The whole thing redefines "holy shit."
