And the douchebag of the week award goes to: Gerard Depardieu
Much like Kim Kardashian is famous for her sizeable arse, Gerard Depardieu's notoriety (at least these days anyway) is born of his unrelenting douchebag-ness. Made up word, yes. First he takes a whizz on a plane, now the 63 year old actor has allegedly punched a motorist square in the face after a brief altercation following a minor road collision. Reuters report that Depardieu was riding through Paris on his scooter when he collided with the aforementioned motorist. Whilst arguing with the unidentified driver, Depardieu thought 'feck it, violence sorts EVERYTHING' (or whatever the French equivalent of that is), gave him a taste of his right hook and has now been charged with assault and battery. A legal complaint was filed by the motorist claiming that he was left injured by the Life of Pi (coming this December) actor. And to think that all those years ago, after his enjoyable turn in My Father The Hero, that I'd have liked him as a dad for myself. Pffft.
Life of Pi premieres at the New York Film Festival this September. We wait with baited breath for another obnoxious (yet entertaining) public performance. No more bodily fluids though, thanks.
