jean-dujardin-GQ.jpgActor Jean Dujardin has been the toast of Hollywood for his Oscar-nominated performance in “The Artist.” He appears in the latest GQ to talk about his inspiration and do a photoshoot in some stylin’ plaid suits.

On dancing: “I learned to tap-dance for ‘The Artist.’ I love dancing in general, and making girls dance. My generation doesn’t do it enough.”

On his inspiration: “I adore [Paul] Newman. His elegance was so relaxed – chewing gum, opening his jacket, the tie hanging.”

On moving across the pond: “I am too Parisian. And I think the French would be angry if I left. I hope they would be angry.”
“The Artist” leads the Oscar nominations in major categories with five, and is second overall with 10 total. You can read Dujardin’s full interview here.
