BIOGRAPHY OF GÉRARD DEPARDIEU

Actor. He comes from a proletarian family. He spent a turbulent adolescence between hangovers, thefts and fights. At 17 he ran away from home to go to Paris to do theater, he attended the school of Jean Laurent Cochet and with Miou Miou and Patrick Dewaere he set up the small traveling theater “Cafè de la Gare”. After small parts in the cinema and on television, in 1973 he was entrusted with the role of the cynical and exuberant young man in “I santissimi” (Les valseuses) by Bertrand Blier. The film is a success and for Depardieu comes popularity. He gained international fame in 1976 with “Novecento Atto I” and “Atto II” by Bernardo Bertolucci. Much in demand also by international directors, he is a versatile and very prepared actor who knows how to immerse himself in any type of role. The only drawback in his career is the lack of popular consecration in the United States due, perhaps, to an interview given by the French actor to Time magazine in which it was said that during his adolescence he had participated in a rape. According to the journalist and historian Paul Chukrow who reconstructed the truth following the recording of the interview, it was a translation error from French to English. In reality the actor was only a “witness” to the rape and this is one of the reasons why he left Châteauroux. Winner of a Golden Globe for best actor for the comedy “Green Card – marriage of convenience” (1990) by Peter Wire he was also nominated for an Oscar for his performance in Jean Paul Rappenau’s “Cyrano de Bergerac” (1990) (which went to Jeremy Irons). However, for the interpretation of Cyrano he won the Palme d’Or at Cannes and the César prize for best actor – he had already won one ten years earlier for “L’ultimo metró” (Le dernier métro) by François Truffaut. In Italy he received two awards: a Coppa Volpi at the Venice Film Festival in 1985 for Maurice Pialat’s “Police” and a Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement in 1995. In 1984 he tried his hand at directing the film version of “Tartufo” by Molière and in 1999 he directed “Un pont entre deux rives”. He was married to Elizabeth Guignot from 1970 to 1996, with her he had two children, Guillaume (also an actor) and Julie. He has a third daughter, Roxanne, born, it is said, of a relationship with actress and model Karine Sallas. He is currently linked to actress Carole Bouquet. In 1996 he received the Legion of Honor.
