Gerard Depardieu

"Gerard Depardieu is shaken by this complaint ... and is absolutely contesting any assault, rape, or any criminal act", Témime said.

A source said the Paris public prosecutor's office had opened a preliminary inquiry.

One of France's most prolific actors, Depardieu, 69, has been in about 170 movies through his career and gained global recognition in 1990 with his starring role in English-language comedy Green Card.

According to "Le Parisien", the plaintiff, an "actress and dancer" in her 20s, filed the complaint at a gendarmerie in Lambesc near Aix-en-Provence, southern France, saying she had been sexually assaulted twice by the 69-year-old actor.

The alleged crimes occurred this month in one of Mr Depardieu's Paris residences, French media report.

Mr Depardieu is one of France's most recognisable actors, and has starred in films such as Cyrano de Bergerac and Jean de Florette. He added: "I regret the public nature of this procedure which is causing serious damage to Gérard Depardieu".

Depardieu is the second major French film industry figure to be accused of sexual assault, following prominent French director Luc Besson.

In recent years, Depardieu had drawn Western criticism for his close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. He has had scrapes with the law in the past over drink driving.

Depardieu has appeared in films like "Green Card", "The Man in the Iron Mask" and "Life of Pi". The young woman is understood to be a protégé of Depardieu's and also the daughter of the famous actor's friend.
