Guillaume Depardieu (7 April 1971 – 13 October 2008) was a French actor, winner of a César Award, and the oldest child of Gérard Depardieu.
Depardieu married actress Elise Ventre on 30 December 1999. They had a daughter, and separated in 2001. Guillaume was known to have had a strained relationship with his famous father, which he detailed in his 2004 autobiography Tout Donner (Giving Everything). The two were said to have reconciled shortly before his death.
Guillaume was often called an enfant terrible by the French magazine Paris Match and was called eccentric and bohemian by others. By 1993, he had already served two jail sentences for drug offences which included dealing heroin and theft. In 2003, he was fined and given a nine-month suspended prison sentence for threatening a man with a gun. In 2008, he was arrested for driving his scooter while intoxicated.
In 1995, Depardieu suffered a motorcycle accident due to a suitcase that fell off a vehicle in front of him which required him to have surgery on his knee. In the hospital he contracted a Staphylococcus aureus infection in the knee, which led to 17 operations and the eventual amputation of the leg in June 2003.
