Actor Gérard Depardieu accused of rape

Gerard Depardieu the famous french actor known for his roles such as Cyrano de Bergerac has been accused of rape by an un-named actress French investigation opens after Gérard Depardieu accused of rape
Rosie Leonard | 31 August, 2018, 16:39

The Paris public prosecutor's office has reportedly opened an inquiry after a complaint was lodged on Monday in Aix-en-Provence, located in Southern France.

Depardieu denied the allegations on several occasions, professing his love for Russian culture and people.

The actor, he said, was "shaken" by the allegations, which went against "everything he is and respects".

The young woman was studying at a school where Depardieu is teaching, according to BFM.

The French actor's romantic history has also been turbulent with him divorcing his first wife actress Elisabeth Guignot in 1996.

Before he crossed the Atlantic to play a bon vivant Frenchman to MacDowell's prissy horticulturist, Depardieu played roles from Jean Valjean, the thief-turned-saint in "Les Miserables", to Christopher Columbus.

The French film star denies the allegations. Meanwhile, the same year as his success in 1990's Cyrano de Bergerac, he also won fame in English-language comedy Green Card. "I regret the public nature of this process, which poses a major prejudice to Gerard Depardieu".

Depardieu's most recent credits include several French films and an animated movie co-starring Logan Lerman and Helena Bonham Carter called "Sgt". He rose to global fame when he bagged a Golden Globe for his 1990 role as Georges in the romantic comedy Green Card.

Depardieu has appeared in 200 films over six decades and holds a rare position as a French actor who is known in Hollywood.
