In Other News...Gerard Depardieu Retires

by | November 1, 2005 | Comments

According to French newspaper Le Parisian, actor Gerard Depardieu has announced his retirement from movies. The 55 year-old native Frenchman, most famous in the states for his Oscar-nominated role in "Cyrano de Bergerac" and his less-successful English-language films of the 1990s, reportedly made his retirement speech at the close of filming on his latest French comedy, "Michou d’Auber." The news comes despite the actor’s name being attached to at least two upcoming projects (one French production, one American production), and may relieve American audiences who remember watching the attempted crossovers "Green Card," "My Father the Hero," or the Whoopi Goldberg co-starrer, "Bogus." Depardieu fans can nevertheless hold the tears – the man Leonard Maltin called ‘filmdom’s most ungainly sex symbol’ will appear once more in the states this January in the Queen Latifah vehicle, "Last Holiday."
