Gérard Depardieu: the Minister of Culture denounces an attitude which “shames France”


A “disrespectful and undignified” attitude. The Minister of Culture, Rima Abdul Malak, denounced on Friday December 15 the comments and attitude of Gérard Depardieu during a trip by the actor to North Korea in 2018, recently made public by the program “Complément d ‘investigation ” .

Traveling to Moissac (Tarn-et-Garonne) with the government spokesperson, Olivier Véran, Ms. Abdul Malak denounced “the absolutely shocking comments that we saw in this report, an attitude that is intended on the tone of joke and provocation, but which is in fact quite disrespectful and undignified, and which shames France .

The previously unseen images of the actor’s trip, revealed in the show, show Gérard Depardieu making inappropriate comments, and making gestures and throat noises mimicking the sexual act during exchanges with women. In a stud farm, he states that “women love to ride [because] their clits rub against the saddle (…) they enjoy a lot” . And to continue: “They’re big sluts. »

“It disgusted me,” added the minister on Friday, who nevertheless recalled that “it is not up to the Ministry of Culture to give instructions, since there is total freedom of creation in France.” “There are directors who can decide to play him in future films or not. I don’t have the impression that there are many proposals, at the moment, arriving on his desk,” she further noted.

Already indicted for rape, the French actor, with more than two hundred films to his credit, has been the target since mid-September of another complaint from an actress who accuses him of having sexually assaulted her during a shooting in 2007, according to the Paris prosecutor’s office. Gérard Depardieu denies these accusations.
