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.

And since then, she tirelessly fights for the rights of animals in different countries of the world – she condemns the hunt for seals in Canada, accuses China of exterminating tigers, donates money for stray dogs in Romania, etc. In 2008, Brigitte even managed to get a lawsuit for “inciting racial and religious hostility” and a fine of 15,000 euros.
