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.

Celebrities try new professions

Having become popular on the screen, stars often do not stop there, but try themselves in a new quality: they move to the director’s chair, create production companies, and work on scripts. But some are fond of something completely different from the movie. For example, today’s birthday girl Brigitte Bardot.

Let’s remember which of the famous actors turned his hobby almost into a profession.

Brigitte Bardot – actress and animal protector
In 1986, one of the most famous French actresses opened her foundation for the well-being and protection of animals, auctioning her own jewelry. 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. She wrote a letter to Nicolas Sarkozy (when he was still the Minister of the Interior), in which she vehemently resented the fact that on Muslim holidays it was customary to cut the throat of sheep without stunning, that is, while they are conscious. At the same time, she objected to the fact that the Muslim community in France is growing too fast and spreading its values ​​and lifestyle. Continue reading
