    Default Gerard Depardieu to retire

    PARIS - Famed French actor Gerard Depardieu says in a newspaper interview that he's ending his film career and swears he wasn't drunk when he said it.

    "I'm in the process of stopping filming," the portly, Oscar-nominated actor was quoted as saying in weekly Le Parisien Dimanche. "I'm a guy who's leaving! A guy who's not drunk. For once."

    Depardieu, one of France's most prolific actors, was speaking on the set of an upcoming French film and is scheduled to appear in a new installment of the "Asterix" series next year, the newspaper said.

    But he insisted his career will soon be over.

    "I have nothing to lose," the 56-year-old star said. "I have done 170 films. I have nothing left to prove. I am not going to hang on like a jerk."

    Depardieu was a leading French actor of the 1980s and 1990s with such hits as "Green Card," "Jean de Florette" and "Cyrano de Bergerac," for which he was nominated for an Academy Award.

    he's had some unfortunate roles. and some great ones. i like him though. he's quite the decadent bon vivant. he probably wants to retire to his vineyard with carole bouquet and tend to his grapes and eat and drink for the rest of his days.

    Jean de Florette was a good movie. I still have to try and find Manon des Sources to watch though! It was on CBC a while ago, but I couldn't watch it for some reason which I don't remember.
