Jean Dujardin to announce shock retirement from comedy?

Dujardin created a stir on Saturday when rumors have surfaced that his career was over.

Sad news for Dujardin fans. Speculation had been rife that the French comedian best known for his roles in The Artist, OSS 117 or The Brice Man, will announce his retirement from comedy, at age 48, with immediate effect.

UPDATE 05/07/2020 : This story seems to be false. (read more)

Being a comedian isn't fun anymore

“As we get older, there are phases of life that we enter into, and being a comedian-actor-screenwriter just isn't fun anymore,” he might have said, says a source who remained anonymous. Other reports hinted that he may branch out into other creative fields he is better at (and more interested in), though they didn't provide any details.


For a little while on Saturday evening, #ThankYouJean was a trending hashtag on Twitter. As many fans reminisce and look back on all the unforgettable memories, some may wonder what about now made him make the decision.

“You’ve accomplished everything I ever dreamed of #ThankYouJean.”
