A legendary French actor has been accused of raping and sexually assaulting a 22-year-old actress in Paris.
The claims were made about the seasoned film star Gerard Depardieu to the French authorities on Monday, according to radio reports.
The events are alleged to have taken place at Depardieu's Parisian home, a sprawling mansion in the 6th arrondissement of the city earlier this month.
The 69-year-old star denies the allegations 'absolutely', his lawyer told AFP news agency.
