Gallery Update: Monsieur de Chanel

Gaspard has been interviewed for the Russian paper Kommersant in February. The scan that I added to the gallery doesn’t show the complete interview, but you can read the rest of it here.

The Russian version of L’Officiel Hommes has also featured Gaspard as the face of Chanel’s new watch in their March issue.

On top of that, I was able to feed the gallery with more photos from Gaspard’s Monsieur de Chanel shooting. You should take another look at the pictures that you might already know as well because I replaced a couple of them with HQs!

How do you like the photos? Feel free to leave a comment!

Introducing “Les confins du monde”

Introducing “Les confins du monde”

Gaspard and Gérard Depardieu are going to star in “Les confins du monde” (To The Ends Of The Earth), directed by Guillaume Nicloux.

The plot focuses on the First Indochina War. Gaspard plays Robert, a French soldier whose beliefs take a sharp turn when he falls in love with Maï, a Vietnamese woman (Lang Khê Tran).

The film will be released in France by Ad Vitam, but there’s hope for a bigger distribution! Today, Screendaily reported that the drama is going to be presented in Vietnam by Blue Lantern Entertainment and has been sold to China’s DMG Entertainment as well.

I added a teaser poster and a film still to the gallery:


  • Film, TV, and Stage Productions → Film Productions → Les confins du monde (2017) → Posters
  • Film, TV, and Stage Productions → Film Productions → Les confins du monde (2017) → Stills

If you are interested in the project, you can find photos from behind the scenes on the Instagram accounts of some cast members like Lang Khê TranGuillaume Gouix, and Clément Guény.

“Gaspard Ulliel Takes His Own Time”

“Gaspard Ulliel Takes His Own Time”

Earlier this month, Debonair Magazine released an interview with Gaspard to introduce him as the ambassador for the “Monsieur de Chanel” watch.

DEBONAIR – Gaspard Ulliel just won the award of his life — onscreen, he’s just added the César to his mantle piece; off-screen, he’s the face of the first Monsieur de Chanel watch

He’s a casting director’s dream. Tall, muscular, handsome, boasting boyishly good looks, Gaspard Ulliel had his pick of roles as lead protagonist in romantic comedies. Luckily his highly expressive, intelligent and curious nature saw him turn down many of them, throwing things wide open for the Frenchman.

He had a modest start, aged 12, in made-for-TV movies in France and two decades later, Ulliel has built the sort of CV not even the most intuitive critic could have predicted, least of all the actor himself. Now, 32, he has already worked with Gus Van Sant (Paris, Je t’aime), taken on Anthony Hopkins’ career-defining role as Hannibal Lecter (Hannibal Rising), and brought fashion icon Yves Saint Laurent to life in Bertrand Bonello’s biopic Saint Laurent.

Maybe it’s his strong physique, which, when complimented, reveals a dimple that dents his left cheek, or maybe it’s the Monsieur de Chanel watch on his thick wrist, the maison’s first watch for men, but hearts race when Ulliel enters a room.

He undoes the watch to show off the underside and it’s clear — brand ambassador or not, Ulliel has a passion for much more than acting. It’s transparent and we can see the mechanism. “It’s like a beating heart, don’t you think?” he asks.

Gaspard was chosen to grace the April 2017 cover of L’Optimum Thailand. Unfortunately, I could not find any more scans of the magazine so far, but maybe I will be able to add them later this month. You can check out the cover and the banner from the L’Optimum homepage in the gallery:
