What kind of beast is Gérard Depardieu? -
Bonne année à tou.te.s,
To start this new year with a hot debate right off the news: his life is as hectic as his films are eclectic, his persona as colorful as some of his characters, we’re talking about Gérard Depardieu. The French actor is adored by the public, attracting the most audience of any living French actor. But the man behind the mask seems to have quite a few demons he’s struggling with. Should that make him less likable?
