Women Gerard Depardieu

The most charming hero of French cinema, a charming lover of wine, gastronomy and just a good life, Gerard Depardieu celebrates his birthday tomorrow. No one will call his beauty classical, but it is simply impossible to refuse his charm. Somewhere in jest, and somewhere seriously, Depardieu said in an interview that he has 20 children from 10 different women.

Maybe it’s true, or maybe he was pushing his own price – although he doesn’t need to do this. He tries to live his life to the fullest and not miss a second, not a single moment.

Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Adjani, Andy MacDowell, Sophie Marceau, Ornela Muti, Sandrine Bonner, Jeanne Moreau and writer Marguerite Duras – the women with whom he appeared on the TV screen and who, by his own admission, taught him a lot. “A woman was born to be a mother.

“Cumpleanos feliz!” from all sides she will hear tomorrow “Happy Birthday!”

He fell in love with her at first sight, but could only admit his feelings after many years.

They became best friends, but shooting a Woody Allen movie changed the lives of both actors in just one day …


In her native Spain, her name is simply simply “Pe”, and in Hollywood – “Spanish Charm” or “Madrid Madonna”.

The mother of the future star dreamed that her daughter would become a ballerina, but already at the age of 15 Penelope signed a contract and left for the TV. It is noteworthy that she gave her first fee to the last cent to the charity fund of Mother Teresa. Continue reading
