We chose Gérard Xavier Marcel Depardieu to be the douchebag of the year, because he does such a credible job. The great actor he was – remember his role as the French revolutionary, Danton? – is currently joining the likes of the rich assholes who prefer their money to their decency.
What TPV considers worth sharing is that in addition to Belgium, Russia and its on-and-off prime minister, the venerable Mr. Putin, also invited the aging French actor to establish his residence there. Russia may offer less boredom, especially if Depardieu’s neighbor happens to be Syria’s Bashar-al Assad.
Happy New Year, Great Douche!
