Depardieu to seek more passports

French actor and new Russian national Gerard Depardieu said Sunday he was applying for an Algerian passport and possibly others, describing himself a “world citizen.”

The 64-year-old star acquired Russian nationality in January after getting into a fight with the French authorities over a new 75 percent tax on the superrich.

“I would like to have seven” passports, he told France’s Journal du Dimanche. “I’m going to ask for an Algerian one and others as well. This will help me avoid visas.”
