Depardieu's proposed retirement rattles French

1 November 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

PARIS -- French actor Gerard Depardieu's declaration to a French newspaper that he is preparing to end his career after he has finished shooting Michou d'Auber, about the Algerian war of independence, has created a stir in the French film industry. "I have nothing to lose. I've made 170 films. I have nothing left to prove," the 56-year-old star of such films as Green Card, Cyrano de Bergerac and Under Satan's Sun told French newspaper Le Parisien in an interview published Sunday. Depardieu added that he didn't want "to hang on like an idiot," but to "retire with a flourish" instead. But Depardieu's agent, Claude Davy, clarified that he has heard the actor make "declarations of this kind for the last 10 years," and that "he didn't believe them at all." »

When Monestier challenged Depardieu to call him something else, the actor swiftly labeled him "un tête de lard" - "a d**khead". Depardieu then ignored host Michel Field's attempts to restore order and said, "I don't like critics. I like critics when they are right. When they are positive... Or even negative." The 56-year-old then pretended to notice another guest, Mazarine Pingeot, the daughter of former French president Francois Mitterand, and exclaimed, "Hello beautiful. I didn't see you there," before kissing her on the cheek. Depardieu recently claimed to have cut back on his excessive drinking after undergoing an emergency quintuple bypass operation. Last month, he said, "I have learnt a lot about my body since my heart attack. I don't drink as much now as before. I do sometimes drink more than I should..." »
