Gérard Depardieu has been charged with raping a young actress three years ago, according to a report Tuesday.
The 72-year-old actor was charged in December in the alleged assault, which occurred at his Paris apartment in 2018 when the victim was 22, a judicial source told Agence France-Presse.
The case was initially dropped for lack of evidence but reopened late last year when the unidentified French actress refiled her complaint.
Depardieu, who earned an Oscar nomination in 1991 for his role in “Cyrano de Bergerac,” has denied the allegations.
