French Exodus to Russia
French actor Gerard Depardieu is weighing an invitation to become a Russian citizen and accept a passport from Vladimir Putin. But he’s not the only movie star from France considering a move to Russia. Now, Brigitte Bardot says she might go there as well. Depardieu’s motivation: The outrageously high taxes being imposed by France’s new Socialist government. Bardot’s beef is different: She’s upset over an animal rights incident.
