Depardieu in Love!

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, look at these pictures of the Depardieu at the Cannes, with the Belgian actress the Cecile de France, the costar of the new movie.

Clearly, the Depardieu he is in the love!

As for the Cecile?

Meh..not so much.

    Oh god! I almost feel sorry for the old goat.

  2. Manolo the Shoeblogger Says:

    “Old goat”! Ah, the exact phrase for which the Manolo was searching!

    Many thanks to the desertwind for supplying it so that the Manolo may use it in the rollover.

  3. aliki Says:

    I think this old goat is an entire has been. Cecile de France deserves better.

  4. aliki Says:

    I wanted to add: Cecile de France deserves better “chaussure à son pied”. I am sure the Manolo understands.

  5. blackbird Says:

    I think perhaps she is concerned that he is ‘too much man’ for her.

  6. Zarba Says:

    the lady appears to be “taking one for the team” to advance her career, no?

  7. Cat Says:

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! “I am not wearing the underpants.” Thank you, Manolo; I needed the good laugh this morning!

  8. Kourtney Says:

    Ah, but like that other old goat, Pan, does not the Depardieu still posess some… some… je ne sais quoi, but it’s something, all right. Not something I would want, but something.

  9. Bibliovixen Says:

    Oh, how you malign the Depardieu!

    It is not only the painfully thin (and to some that is considered “beautiful”) and youthful that possess sensuality and charm. In fact, most of those “beautiful” persons must have an extra slice of melba toast to work up the energy to appear animated, but the Depardieu! A randy old goat he may be, but he shows verve!

  10. pbird Says:

    I was tempted to say Wow Think About all that….then it occured to me that he knows he is on camera and perhaps he is just a way better actor than her.

  11. knoxgirl Says:

    Gag-inducing photos! “Lech” comes immediately to mind. Immediately after “old goat,” that is.

  12. gidget bananas Says:

    The Cecile, she is most pretty in those top pictures. The pastel casual outfit becomes her. As for the Depardieu, he should pick on the womens of his own age, like the Gidget, for example.

  13. Mimi Says:

    Once again the Manolo’s razor-sharp wit and dead-on characterization have made the Mimi laugh and laugh and laugh.

  14. LotionBarBunny Says:

    The last time I saw him he was not so fat or old!

    Also—your blog lives up to the expectations I had when reading my fellow beauty bloggers take on your fantastic blog! I’ll be adding you to my blog links!


  15. shiloh Says:

    i’m with you on this one, gidget. being the depardieu he remains in character as the pbird has observed. old, fat and sometimes unkempt he still has it.

  16. willowgerl Says:

    shilow, the willow, she agrees that the Depardieu certainly has it, yet the willow she is at a loss as to exactly what it is…

  17. willowgerl Says:

    sorry, “shiloh”. The willow she does not pay attention to the spelling of the names sometimes. :)

  18. Fausta Says:

    Ah, the Depardieu of The Woman Next Door, The Return of Martin Guerre and The Last Stop* was so sexy.
    Now he looks like Obélix, which he’s playing again on screen.
    Age does a job, doesn’t it!

    *(I also highly recommend the heartbreakingly beautiful film Vatel, with GDP in the title role)

  19. Verity Kindle Says:

    He does have a certain charisma. Yes, his nose is onion-like, but perfect noses are overrated. (cough G. Clooney cough) His nose has character and he is not afraid of aging naturally- no pansy plastic surgery for The Depardieu!!!!!!

  20. Fausta Says:

    Correction, make that The Last Metro

  21. la petite chou chou Says:

    Poor Old Goat!! Does she hate him??

  22. Camera Obscura Says:

    Methinks this is the situation from which the term “funny uncle” was created.

    And after staring at the photos for a little bit, I agree that Le Depardieu is “in character” and the skinny miss is either clueless to this, or not so good an actor as he is.

  23. Beanie Says:

    The Depardieu-what at cad-I hear he has the big slong…hum…

  24. jenny Says:

    These remind me of some of my high school date-dance pictures. That would be the pictures from the dates that couldn’t end soon enough. The kind where you can barely scrape a smile out of the depths of your bowels, and are repeating over and over again in your mind, “There’s no place like home…”

  25. Orientalist Says:

    I think the correct term is “ancien goat”

    Also, he should pick on someone his own *size*.

  26. La Petite Acadienne Says:

    Well, perhaps she saw some of the Depardieu’s old movies, where his “petit ami” was on constant display, and was intrigued…
