Gerard Depardieu did you see him on Jonathon Ross last week

He was soooooo arogent he started to smoke during the interview and when he was told he shouldn't put it on the carpet and stubbed it out

The Fisher King, turquoise. I also love J Bridges in the Big Lebovski!

Depardieu definitely suffers from over-exposure. He has been in some good films, and a hell of a lot of dodgy ones.

hahahahahah @ gerard D

that reminds me of the fabulous Robin Williams doing stand-up; "We are French, we do not care! Ha! See, we make a baby smoke"

you gotta see it to get the full effect

suzywong - that sums up depardieu to a tee. He's sooo up his own arse.

I think I've gone off Kevin Spacey - used to really rate him after american beauty

Rowlers · 25/09/2005 13:28

Just wanted to add James Dean.
Only ever in 3 films I think but crikey you could feel the heat coming off him. And beautiful too.

dinny · 25/09/2005 13:31

oh, yes, Rowlers. and I forgot Marlon Brando in A Streetcar Named Desire. And Gregory Peck in To Kill A Mockingbird.
