It doesn’t stop! While he was this year on the movie poster Retirement home, Maigret and even in Irreducible the time of a cameo, the legendary actor Gérard Depardieu is already making his return to the big screen in Green Shuttersin theaters August 24, 2022. It delivered on promo in Madame Figaro.
In this joint interview with his film partner, actress Fanny Ardant, the now 73-year-old actor discussed a slew of topics. While the magazine asked the two accomplices if they were rebellious, Gérard Depardieu confided to being like his partner, namely not to accept being told what to do or how to behave. But the actor also sent an unexpected cleat, in connection with the death of his son Guillaume Depardieu. “And I would add that I refute justice. Until it’s fair, I don’t want it. She’s political, I never believed her, and she caused my son’s death“, he declared. As a reminder, Guillaume had been sentenced to three years in prison in 1988 for use, importation and trafficking of heroin. He was then imprisoned in the Bois-d’prison Arcy but eventually released on parole after eighteen months.
Gérard Depardieu, himself in trouble with the law for a few years because of a rape case, therefore found a culprit in the tragic death of his son Guillaume, who died at only 37 years old in 2008. In fact, Guillaume Depardieu (seen in the cinema in the movies All the mornings of the world, love your father, Don’t touch the ax or Blindfolded) died after contracting pneumonia which resulted in a new infection with Staphylococcus aureus. He had been admitted to Garches hospital and unfortunately died three days after contracting the disease. His funeral was held at the church in Bougival on October 17, 2008.
The confidences of Gérard Depardieu are to be found in the magazine Madame Figaroedition of Friday, August 19, 2022.
