Gerard Depardieu is being investigated by the Paris prosecutor over accusations of rape and sexual assault, a judicial source has said, though the prominent French actor's lawyer said he denies any wrongdoing.

The actress filed a formal complaint with French police on Monday, alleging she was sexually assaulted by Depardieu, a 69-year-old icon in the French film industry, according to French radio.

Gerard Depardieu, the famous french actor known for his roles such as Cyrano de Bergerac, has been accused of rape by an un-named actress.

Depardieu "absolutely" denies the allegations. "The case was passed on to the Paris prosecutor", the source said.

Depardieu's lawyer, Herve Temime, has shot down her claims, stating he is convinced his client will be exonerated of any crime upon the completion of an investigation.




Depardieu, 69, is France's biggest worldwide star and has made more than 180 films.

French superstar Gerard Depardieu faces allegations of rape and harassment in France. Another woman, a 49-year-old casting director, said he assaulted her whenever they were in an elevator together.

Depardieu was "shaken" by the "groundless" accusations, Temime said.

In France, the Me Too movement has not moved as quickly as it did through Hollywood and has been met with some resistance. The actress had also reportedly been receiving professional advice from Depardieu. His other films include The Man in the Iron Mask (1998), 1900 (1976), The Last Metro (1980), Danton (1983) and 1492: Conquest of Paradise (1992).
