Depardieu: France land of 'imbeciles and stinky cheese'.

ROME: Larger-than-life actor Gerard Depardieu said his homeland France is becoming a playground for foreigners "populated by imbeciles making ... stinky cheese," according to an interview published Thursday. The maverick performer, 67, has taken aim at France before. He was granted Russian citizenship in 2013 after befriending strongman President Vladimir Putin and lambasting tax rates on top earners in his native land. When asked during the interview if he considers himself French, Depardieu told Corriere della Sera: "No, I'm a citizen of the world. France is likely to become a Disneyland for foreigners, populated by imbeciles making wine and stinky cheese for tourists." "There is no more freedom, people are being manipulated," he added.
