A 22-year-old female actor made a complaint to police on Monday in Bouches-du-Rhone, southern France, over an assault that would have occurred in Paris on 7 and 13 August in one of the homes of the French actor.
Depardieu's lawyer Hervé Témime confirmed that a complaint against his client had been filed, but said the actor "absolutely denies having committed the slightest offense" against anyone.
Aside from French films and TV-shows, Depardieu has starred in a number of Hollywood films including Kenneth Branagh's "Hamlet" and alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Jeremy Irons in "The Man in the Iron Mask". The case was assigned to Paris prosecutors Wednesday. "He will cooperate in the investigation and will answer questions", Herve Temime said.
