There's an old interview by Blender magazine featuring Vincent discussing his "Crow" role that's now available at this YouTube link. It's in English!

Both Vincent's daughter and stepdaughter have made the news recently. Roxane, the 29-year-old daughter of Gerard Depardieu and Vincent's Senegalese wife Karine, graduated from the California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles and since then has been creating works of art in sculpture, drawings, paintings and serigraphs. She has a particular passion for horses and nature. Her latest exhibition is at the  Château de La Sarraz in Lausanne, Switzerland, which obviously came about through the help of her stepfather. With those braids, Roxane certainly looks more Mexican than French.

Twenty-two-year-old daughter Iman was featured this month in both a Vogue video and article. You might want to check out the video, filmed in the Perez family's Parisian apartment, which I might add is very tastefully furnished though adapting the "less is more" concept would be an improvement. After pursuing a career in modeling, Iman will now focus on an acting career at the Lee Strasberg Institute in New York City.

There are three other YouTube French videos available featuring Vincent last month at his Lausanne festival and at Geneva's Scabal boutique.

 There's a short video interview with Vincent at this link where he discusses his Rencontres 7e Art Lausanne. Note his clean-shaven look! He looks ten years younger!

You can check out another Swiss media interview at this link.


And a Taxiphone interview at this youtube link.

Daughter Iman can be seen this month in Sofia Coppola's exclusive campaign film, "The Chanel Iconic", shot in celebration of Chanel's 11.12 handbag. This short ad also features Carole Bouquet, Anna Mouglalis,  Louisede Chevigny and Zoé Adjani (niece of Isabelle Adjani), seen below with Iman. Personally, I wouldn't use this unattractive bag if you paid me! As far as the ad, the fast-editing technique doesn't work well.

Speaking of campaigns, here's a photo of Vincent with Sarah Poniatowski in her sunglasses ad, described in my December 2020 update.

Turn the clock back to 1994 and here's a photo of a young Vincent that he posted himself online. Is he not oozing with sex appeal?

With the reopening of cinemas in Switzerland, the 4th edition of the Rencontres 7e Art Lausanne will take place from April 26 to May 2, in a hybrid form, in digital but also in theaters. On the menu for these festivities will be film screenings but also master classes with guests such as Jean Dujardin. Some events will be broadcast on the festival's Youtube channel, on Facebook and on the dedicated website. One of the Youtube events is a conversation between Vincent and actress Marthe Keller on April 29 at 7 pm.

I suspect most American fans will have little knowledge of Marthe Keller. I only recognize her name from the 1977 Al Pacino film, "Bobby Deerfield". Vincent will host a master class on April 27 and will participate in "The Think Cinema Round Table" event on May 1.

This year's poster for Les Rencontres 7e Art Lausanne - a scene from "La Dolce Vita".

"What other film than Federico Fellini's working master, Palme d'Or in 1960, could better represent the quintessence of cinema? A photo, to stop the time, a magical, iconic moment, with Marcello Mastroianni and Anita Ekberg, a moment that works well. A way for us to recall what cinema generates as pleasure and pleasure." ...Vincent Perez, President of Rencontres 7e Art Lausanne
