FRENCH actor and new Russian national Gerard Depardieu says he is applying for an Algerian passport and possibly others, describing himself a "world citizen".
The 64-year-old star, one of the world's most prolific actors, acquired Russian nationality in January after getting into a fight with the French authorities over a new 75-per cent tax on the super-rich.
"I would like to have seven" passports, he told France's Journal du Dimanche on Sunday. "I'm going to ask for an Algerian one and others as well," he said. "This will help me avoid visas."
