Gerard Depardieu, 69, one of France's most iconic movie stars, has been accused of allegedly raping and sexually assaulting a 22-year-old actress in Paris earlier in the month of August, according to the Daily Mail.

The complaint was filed on August 27 and went to the Paris prosecutor on August 29.

French media reported that the alleged assault and rape took place at Depardieu's home on Paris's left bank.

Depardieu's lawyer Herve Temime has since shared his support of the actor, and revealed he believes he will be fully exonerated by the end of the investigation.

One of France's most prolific actors, Depardieu has taken part in about 170 movies in his career and gained global recognition in 1990 after starring in English language comedy "Green Card".

Metro.co.uk has reached out to Gerard Depardieu's reps for comment. The case was assigned to Paris prosecutors Wednesday.

In the meantime, Depardieu and his legal team have released a statement denying the accusations against him.

In recent years, the outspoken actor has drawn Western criticism for his close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In the French judicial system, Depardieu would be placed under formal investigation if officials find grounds for pursuing the matter further.

Gérard Depardieu is the latest famous star facing sexual assault allegations.

Depardieu has also never been afraid of taking a swipe at the film industry, slamming the Oscars in 2016, claiming the industry was being "terrorised by the Americans".
