    Before Pretty Woman, Gere’s career had stagnated and had almost taken a nose dive. But he not only relaunched it with PW , but at same time he did Internal Affairs which was an excellent contrasting film about a bent copper. He played the nasty Dennis Peck, “ trust me I am a cop” brilliantly and he was back. many of of his films were not that good. He has got better with age. An underrated movie called Intersection is one that he himself feels was never given a chance as it was hacked to pieces in the cutting room, allegedly.

    I wish Richard Gere says “yes” to our script “ Taste Of Freedom” . A Buddhist based script which is down his alley for more than “in a suit “ 😊🙏

    pretty woman is a massive film in eastern europe, its been the cause of many a poverty stricken girl/ woman to turn to prostitution. These ladies think a better life like the film ( shows/ lies about ) will come their way, instead its one tragic story after another, working girls get the worst lives.

    He says office but they actually met in his apartment well....... that's what Julia said. Damn I love this movie so much.
    Without Richard Gere Pretty Woman would not have been the amazing movie it is. Also Julia Roberts is the best.🖤

    I appreciate the host wanting to speed Richard Gere up but you also have to let an actor come into the story and percolate a bit! Otherwise, you're just going to feel pressured to get the story done and want to abandon it!! lol

      Rampage Clover That's probably shyness or insecurity. He's pretty mild for a Brit though lol. But Graham Norton is a better interviewer.
