Gerard Depardieu, free agent


Russian President Vladimir Putin has granted citizenship to French actor Gérard Depardieu, who has been embroiled in a bitter fight over taxes with France’s government, the Kremlin said Thursday.

A statement posted on the government website said that Mr. Putin had signed a decree in response to “an application for citizenship of the Russian Federation” on behalf of “Depardieu Gérard Xavier, who was born in France in 1948.”

  1. This is the solution: Depardieu should just adopt all the Russian children who are being screwed by the Putin gov’t out of adoption by Americans. Then he’ll get kickbacks from the Russian gov’t so he can pay his back taxes to the French. Win-win!
