Gérard Xavier Marcel Depardieu grew up in poor circumstances and had a difficult childhood. His father left the family at an early age and his mother struggled to raise him and his six siblings on her own. He showed an early interest in acting and appeared in various plays during his school years. After leaving school, he moved to Paris to train as an actor. It was there that he began his career as a theater actor.
In addition to his acting career, Depardieu is also active as an entrepreneur. He owns several restaurants and wineries in France and is a great lover of good food and wine.
In 2013, Depardieu made headlines when he renounced his French citizenship and became a Russian citizen. This was in protest against the high taxation of the rich in France. Since then, he has lived mostly in Russia, but still retains his ties to France.
His breakthrough in the film business came in 1974 with his role in "Going Places". The film was a huge success and made Depardieu a star overnight. In the years that followed, he appeared in a large number of films and established himself as one of France's best-known actors.
Another milestone in Depardieu's career was his role in "Cyrano de Bergerac" (1990), a film adaptation of the play of the same name. For his portrayal of Cyrano de Bergerac, he received an Oscar nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role and won the César Award for Best Actor.
In the 1990s, Gérard Depardieu also began to enjoy international success. He appeared in Hollywood productions such as "Green Card" (1990) alongside Andie MacDowell and "Cyrano de Bergerac" (1990), for which he received an Oscar nomination.
27 awards & 37 nominations
Depardieu has worked with renowned directors such as François Truffaut, Claude Chabrol and Jean-Luc Godard and has received numerous awards for his performances. He has won a total of ten César Awards, including Best Actor for films such as "The Last Metro" (1981), "Jean de Florette" (1986) and "Cyrano de Bergerac" (1990). This makes him the actor with the most César awards in the history of French cinema. He has also been honored with a Golden Globe and a BAFTA Award.
