Gerard is the son of Anne Jeanne Josephe and her husband Rene Maxime Lionel Depardieu, and along with four other children he grew up in his hometown. He left school when he was 13 years old, and soon ran into problems with the law, which resulted in probation. Three years after he left school, Gerard moved to Paris, where he joined the comedy theatre Cage de la Gare. He also studied dancing and was taught by Jean Lauren Cochet. His career on the screen began in the 1960s, but before 1974 he didn`t have any major role, until portraying Jean-Claude in “Les Valseuses”, a comedy directed by Bertrand Blier. In the 1970s, Gerard also made successful appearances in “La Femme du Gange” (1974), “The Wonderful Crook” (1975), “The Last Woman” (1976), “1900” (1976) alongside Robert De Niro, “Get Out Your Handkerchiefs” (1978), and “The Dogs” (1979), all of which increased his net worth by a large margin. Since then, his career has only gone upwards, and he has appeared in both English language and French language films, and so far has made over 200 appearances, which have added a substantial amount to his net worth.
