Depar­dieu’s driv­ing dish

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

What would we do with­out Gérard Depar­dieu? If he’s not wee­ing in planes, he’s boast­ing about youth­ful in­dis­cre­tions or say­ing rude things about Juli­ette Binoche. Now the French ac­tor has been ac­cused of punch­ing a mo­torist in a road-rage in­ci­dent. It ap­pears the dis­pute started when his scooter col­lided with a mo­tor­car in Paris. The ar­gu­ment es­ca­lated and reached news­wor­thy sta­tus when Gérard al­legedly clob­bered the driver in his un­for­tu­nate face. The mo­torist lodged a com­plaint with the pros­e­cu­tor. Gérard re­sponded by sub­mit­ting a counter-com­plaint for dan­ger­ous driv­ing. “My re­ac­tion was per­haps a lit­tle over the top be­cause I was very scared,” the great man said. “Some peo­ple just see me and file a com­plaint.”
