No one can escape time. Not even Gad Elmaleh who cannot prevent the fact that he is aging like all the inhabitants of this planet. But as he gets older, he realizes that fewer and fewer people know him. Or more precisely, the youngest. Indeed, the “five year olds” do not know the one who made a strange coming out as he revealed on the set of Daily this Thursday, June 23. On the other hand, these same children do indeed know the actor, but under another trait of his personality.
For several years, he has been the one who lends his voice to Gru, the villain of the franchise Me, ugly and mean. And his voice, everyone knows it, including children. This therefore gave the famous humorist the opportunity to tell a hilarious anecdote to Yann Barthès. “So I’m going to do to you what I do with the kids on the street because today I’m 50 and 5-year-olds don’t know me”he noticed at first.
Too old for the kids?
Gad Elmaleh continues and reveals the funny situation that occurs when he meets parents with their offspring: “so in general the parents say ‘look it’s Gad Elmaleh’, they answer ‘I don’t know’. And they answer ‘but if you know it’s the one who makes the voice of Gru’. I tell them then ‘yes I do the voice of Gru'”.
However, even assuring that it is indeed he who is hiding behind the character much appreciated by children, Gad Elmaleh ensures that “the kids don’t believe it”. Fact, “Parents tell me ‘please make him Gru’. And that happens all the time on vacation”. If this situation makes the comedian laugh a lot, he does not hide the fact that it can sometimes be disabling for a specific reason: “So I do to them, the little one is hallucinating except that I am on vacation in the same hotel all the week… and so I have to do the voice for them all week”.
