Early life[edit] Gérard Depardieu
Gérard Depardieu
was born in Châteauroux, Indre, France. He is one of the five children of Anne Jeanne Josèphe (née Marillier) and René Maxime Lionel Depardieu, a metal worker and volunteer fireman.[1][2] Leaving school at the young age of thirteen he got a job at a printworks, but also became involved in petty crime, resulting in him being put on probation at one point.[3] Acting career[edit]

At the age of sixteen, Depardieu left Châteauroux
Châteauroux
for Paris. There, he began acting in the new comedy theatre Café de la Gare, along with Patrick Dewaere, Romain Bouteille, Sotha, Coluche, and Miou-Miou.[4] He studied dancing under Jean-Laurent Cochet. His breakout film role came in 1974 playing Jean-Claude in Bertrand Blier's comedy Les Valseuses (Going Places).[5] Other prominent early roles include a starring role with Robert De Niro
Robert De Niro
in Bernardo Bertolucci's historical epic 1900 (1976) and a role in François Truffaut's The Last Metro
The Last Metro
(1980), for which he won his first César Award for Best Actor. His international profile rose as a result of his performance as a doomed, hunchbacked farmer in the film Jean de Florette
Jean de Florette
(1986) and received critical acclaim for his starring role in Cyrano de Bergerac (1990), for which he won his second César Award
César Award
for Best Actor, the Cannes Film Festival
Cannes Film Festival
for Best Actor, and received a nomination for an Academy Award. Depardieu co-starred in Peter Weir's English language romantic comedy Green Card (1990), for which he won a Golden Globe Award. He has since had other roles in other English language films, including Ridley Scott's 1492: Conquest of Paradise (1992), Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet (1996), and Ang Lee's Life of Pi (2012). More recently, he has played Obélix in the four live-action Astérix films in which he is said to have discovered Mélanie Laurent

when she was fourteen.[6] In 2009, he took part in a rare performance of Sardou's La Haine at the Festival de Radio France et Montpellier Languedoc Roussillon, with Fanny Ardant; subsequently broadcast on France Musique.[7] In 2013, he starred in an independent film entitled A Farewell to Fools.[8] Depardieu featured as a main character in Antwerp

at the 2001 Cannes Film Festival

In 1970, Depardieu married Élisabeth Guignot, with whom he had two children, actor Guillaume (1971–2008) and actress Julie (born 1973). On 28 January 1992, while separated from Élisabeth, he had a daughter, Roxanne, with the model Karine Silla (sister of producer Virginie Besson-Silla). In 1996 he divorced Élisabeth and began a relationship with actress Carole Bouquet, who was his partner from 1997 to 2005.[9]

Depardieu at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival

On 14 July 2006, he had a son, Jean, with French-Cambodian Hélène Bizot (daughter of François Bizot
François Bizot
and not to be confused with actress Hélène Bizot).[10][11] Since 2005, Depardieu has lived with Clémentine Igou. He underwent heart surgery in July 2000.[12] On 13 October 2008, Depardieu's son Guillaume died from pneumonia at the age of 37. The infection arose as a complication following surgery to amputate his leg. Guillaume's health had been adversely affected by drug use. A motorcycle crash resulted in a number of post-accident operations performed in an attempt to save the leg. These were complicated by the development of post operative wound infections, eventually necessitating the amputation of the leg.[13] In recent years, Depardieu has attracted attention from the media and legal authorities for his behavior. On August 16 2011, he urinated in a bottle while on board a CityJet
CityJet
flight bound for Dublin
Dublin
as it taxied in Paris. The incident was attributed to urinary incontinence caused by a prostate problem with the flight attendant not allowing him to get up from his seat to go to the toilet because the aircraft was already moving.[14] In August 2012, he was accused of assault and battery for punching a motorist in Paris.[15] In November 2012, he was arrested for driving while intoxicated after he fell from his scooter, and was found to have a blood alcohol level of 1.8 grams per litre, well above the French limit for driving of 0.5.[16] He has been an official resident of Néchin, Belgium
Belgium
since 7 December 2012.[17] French prime minister Jean-Marc Ayrault
Jean-Marc Ayrault
criticised his move.[18] On 15 December 2012, Depardieu publicly stated he was handing back his French passport.[19][20] On 3 January 2013, Russian President Vladimir Putin
Vladimir Putin
signed an Executive Order granting Russian citizenship to Depardieu.[21] In his first interview thereafter, Depardieu attacked Putin's critics.[22] In his autobiography Depardieu said Putin 'immediately liked my hooligan side.'[23] In February 2013 he registered as a resident of Saransk. Also in January 2013 he was appointed a cultural ambassador for Montenegro.[24] During the summer of 2015, due to Russian-Ukrainian political issues, Depardieu was banned from television and movie theaters in Ukraine.[25] Awards[edit] Depardieu has been nominated for the Best Actor in a Leading Role César 17 times during his career and won it twice, in 1981 and 1991. He was also nominated for an Oscar in 1990 for his role in Cyrano de Bergerac.
