Vincent Cassel is with Andrew Tate, “He wants to defend Masculinity.” Vincent Cassel, the acclaimed French actor, has always been known for his clear and precise ideas, sometimes leading to mixed reactions from fans.
Recently, Cassel spoke with The Guardian about his views on life and the world and his defense of Andrew Tate, the former kickboxer who was recently arrested in Romania on charges related to r*pe and pr*stitution.
Before his arrest, Tate had engaged in an online dispute with climate activist Greta Thunberg on Twitter. Tate posted pictures of his expensive car collection, which drew a heated response from Thunberg. This exchange ultimately led to the Romanian police discovering his whereabouts and arresting him.
As of today, Andrew Tate, famously known as the Top G on the Internet, is still in Romanian Jail with his younger brother, Tristan Tate, after being denied bail for the third time. The Tate brothers were arrested in December and have denied any wrongdoing. Read More
Vincent Cassel is with Andrew Tate, “He wants to defend Masculinity”
Cassel has been following the story of the controversial social media influencer and self-proclaimed misogynist. He believes that Tate’s actions may have been misunderstood and has come to his defense. Cassel’s outspoken views have sometimes put him at odds with fans, but he remains unapologetic in his beliefs.
“I mean, look at what’s happening. Instagram and TikTok is full of people giving a fake idea. Men should be like this. Women should be like this, you know? I mean, it’s a total fantasy of what sexuality should be. And we tend to forget what it’s really about. It’s about being yourself.”
“There’s so many things he says, especially when you see his [Andrew Tate] background that come across as really wrong. But in the middle of that, I think, he’s saying stuff that is actually interesting because he wants to defend masculinity. It’s almost shameful to be masculine these days. You have to be more feminine, more vulnerable. But listen, if men become too vulnerable and feminine, I think there’s going to be a problem.”
When asked about the potential danger of these attitudes worsening into misogyny, Cassel said, “I mean, I hope I’m not misogynistic. I’m surrounded by women. From morning to night, because I’ve got three daughters [Deva Cassel], a wife [ Tina Kunakey], an ex-wife [Monica Belluci], a mother.”
Vincent Cassel’s Upcoming Film
Cassel is scheduled to travel to Toronto soon to commence work on David Cronenberg’s latest project, The Shrouds. This marks the third collaboration between Cronenberg and Cassel, the first two being Eastern Promises and A Dangerous Method.
“It’s the story of a man who loses his wife. It’s about the incapacity to cope with the loss of a loved one. I never thought he had such confidence in me and I’m really flattered. I told him: ‘David, honestly, I have no idea how I’m going to play this.’ And he said that’s exactly why he chose me.”
