Police summon actor Gérard Depardieu for questioning about sexual assault allegations

PARIS (AP) — French media report that police have summoned actor Gérard Depardieu for questioning over two women’s allegations that he sexually assaulted them on film sets.

The BFMTV channel and the daily Le Parisien both reported that the 75-year-old actor was summoned for police questioning in Paris on Monday.

Paris police, the Paris prosecutor’s office, Depardieu’s lawyers and a lawyer for one of the alleged victims did not immediately respond to emails from The Associated Press seeking comment.

BFMTV and Le Parisien report that the police summons relate to accusations of sexual assault filed by two women who accuse him of groping during filming, one in 2014, the other in 2021.

Depardieu was also accused by more than a dozen other women of harassing, groping or sexually assaulting them. He faced preliminary charges of rape and sexual assault in 2020 following allegations from actor Charlotte Arnould.

Depardieu denies any wrongdoing. In an open letter last October, he declared: “I have never, ever abused a woman. »

Depardieu has long been considered a national icon in France. He was a global ambassador for French cinema and achieved international fame with several roles in Hollywood.
