Gerard Depardieu Rejects French Passport

He's making a statement

French actor Gerard Depardieu is no stranger to controvery - and he's been exchanging insults with the French PM after moving out of the country to live in Belgium.

Prime Minister Jean Marc Aryault called the actor "pathetic" and "unpatriotic" last week after his move. Now he lives in Belgium he pays less in taxes.

The actor published an open letter to the PM in Le Journal De Dimanche, writing "I leave after paying 85% of my revenue in 2012. I turn into you my passport and social security card, which I have never used."

The last time the actor hit the headlines was in the summer of 2011, when he was thrown off a CityJet flight for urinating in the aisles due to a prostate problem.

He has made over 100 films including 'Life Of Pi', and worked as a producer on a 2001 version of 'Les Miserables'. He was Oscar nominated for his role in 'Cyrano de Bergerac'.

He also got into trouble at the end of November when he engaged in some drink driving on his scooter, having a minor accent when he fell and slightly injured his elbow.
