Jean Dujardin - Jean Dujardin Mobbed At Paris Airport After Oscars Win

Jean Dujardin was mobbed upon his return to France today (29.02.12).

The star was greeted by wellwishers at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport in the capital as he arrived back in his native country following the Academy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (26.02.12) where his movie 'The Artist' swept the boards including a Best Actor win for his own performance.

Jean, 39, was flanked by French police and bodyguards to help him get through the crowd, as he clutched his statuette.

The actor revealed after his win that he would happily make another silent movie if it helped his chances of mainstream success in Hollywood.

He said: ''I'm not an American actor, I'm French and I continue in France.

''If I could make another silent movie in America, I would. But I'll always be a French actor in America. Nonetheless, there are a few ideas I would like to develop.''

Jean had a lot of ''fun'' working on 'The Artist' and researched the role by watching old movies, which he insists meant his preparation wasn't difficult.

He said: ''It was not really intellectual, and I'm not an intellectual. No, I watched a lot of movies. Douglas Fairbanks movies, Gene Kelly movies. I had fun pretending to be a movie star in 1920s.''
