FRANCE’S best-known actor Gerard Depardieu was in Yangon from November 7-9.

Depardieu, who announced two weeks ago he was quitting acting, came to Myanmar on a business trip.

The 56-year-old Oscar nominated actor was accompanied by Roger, Zannier, CEO of one of the biggest textile companies in France, and the two stayed at Traders Hotel in downtown Yangon.

Depardieu owns vineyards in France, Spain, Morocco and Argentina, as well as two Paris restaurants. Could it be that he is thinking of opening a restaurant in Myanmar?

The French actor has starred in 170 films, including Hollywood blockbuster Green Card.

The highest paid film star in France, Depardieu was nominated for an Academy Award in 1990 for best actor.
