• Gérard Depardieu's latest scandal unfolds
  • Police have detained him personally again
  • THIS is the latest accusation

In a stunning turn of events, Gérard Depardieu, the French acting legend known for his larger-than-life persona both on and off the screen, has been taken into police custody in Paris. The 75-year-old actor, celebrated for his Oscar-nominated performance in 'Cyrano de Bergerac,' is facing questioning over serious accusations that have sent ripples through the entertainment world.

A Dark Cloud Over a Stellar Career

Iconic French actor Gérard Depardieu is under the spotlight as he voluntarily appears at a Paris police station for questioning related to accusations of sexual assault by two women. The allegations stem from incidents reportedly occurring on film sets, marking another chapter in the actor's controversial saga.

Known for his roles in 'Green Card' and 'The Man in the Iron Mask,' Depardieu's illustrious career is now shadowed by these grave claims, despite his vehement denials. Depardieu's storied career, boasting roles in international hits like 'Life of Pi,' is now tarnished by allegations of sexual assault.

Two women have come forward, claiming the assaults occurred in the very heart of movie magic - on film sets. This isn't the first time Depardieu has found himself in hot water; the actor has previously been under formal investigation for similar accusations, all of which he has staunchly denied.

French broadcaster BFMTV was the first to report on Depardieu’s detention by police. He was summoned to a Paris police station on Monday morning to answer questions related to a sexual assault investigation, the broadcaster learned from a law enforcement source. 'Agence France-Presse' later reported the same, also citing a police source.

Investigators are reportedly looking into allegations that Depardieu groped a set decorator while filming 'Les Volets Verts' in 2021 and groped and made obscene remarks toward a production assistant in 2014 on the set of 'The Magician and the Siamese.' 

The news of Depardieu presenting himself at a Paris police station broke early Monday, leaving fans and critics alike in shock. His lawyer, Christian Saint-Palais, confirmed the actor's compliance with the investigation, highlighting the gravity of the situation. As the world watches, the question remains: How will these allegations affect the legacy of one of France's most celebrated actors?

Depardieu's life off-screen has been as dramatic as his film roles. In 2013, the actor made headlines worldwide for accepting Russian citizenship from Vladimir Putin, in a bold protest against French tax hikes on the wealthy. This move, among others, has painted Depardieu as a figure who constantly challenges the status quo, for better or worse.
