Career

Gere first worked professionally at the Provincetown Playhouse on Cape Cod in 1971 where he starred in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. Gere's first major acting role was in the original London stage version of Grease in 1973.[2] He began appearing in Hollywood films in the mid 1970s, co-starring in the thriller Looking for Mr. Goodbar (1977) and playing the leading role in director Terrence Malick's well-reviewed 1978 film, Days of Heaven.[2] In 1980, Gere appeared in the Broadway production of Bent. His acting career took off that year with the successful film American Gigolo, followed by the popular romantic drama An Officer and a Gentleman, which had grossed over $100 million in 1982.[2] Subsequently, he was the first man ever to appear on the cover of Vogue magazine.

Gere's career in the 1980s alternated between box office successes and failures. After the release of both Internal Affairs and the box office hit Pretty Woman in 1990, Gere's status as a leading man was again solidified, and he continued starring in solidly performing films throughout the 1990s, including Sommersby (1993), Primal Fear (1996), and Runaway Bride (1999), which paired Gere with his Pretty Woman co-star, Julia Roberts.[2] In Mr. Jones, Gere accurately portrayed a high-functioning, creative, and intellectual man with bipolar disorder. The movie was not a commercial success, but was well-received by the mental health community. It is frequently utilized as a training tool to acquaint students and families with the disorder.

On April 15, 2007, during an AIDS awareness event, Gere kissed Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty several times on the cheek and neck. The pair had appeared at a press conference in New Delhi as part of a campaign to preach safe sex to truck drivers in India and promotion of AIDS awareness. The kiss prompted protesters, allegedly members of the right-wing Hindu nationalist group Shiv Sena, to beat burning effigies of Gere with sticks, others set fire to glamor shots of Shetty.[citation needed] Bollywood (Hindi: , Urdu: ) is the informal term popularly used for Mumbai-based Hindi-language film industry in India. ...

I understand people's sentiments, but I do not want a foreigner to take bad memories from here."[citation needed]


On April 26, 2007 an Indian court in Rajasthan issued a warrant for Shetty and Gere's arrest. The legal action against both Shetty and Gere has been suspended by the Indian Supreme Court until the court decides on the case's proper jurisdiction. Gere has since expressed regret for causing any offense and Shetty has stated, "So much has been blown out of proportion."[citation needed] , Rājasthān (DevanāgarÄ«: राजस्थान, IPA: )   is the largest state of the Republic of India in terms of area. ...


A two-judge bench headed by the Chief Justice of India, KG Balakrishnan described the case as "frivolous" and believed that such complaints (against celebrities) were filed for "cheap publicity" and have brought a bad name to the country.

Richard Gere is the most common subject of a popular urban myth which involves the forcing of a gerbil into the anus for pleasure and its later embarrassing removal at hospital. This myth, and its association with Gere, is referred to onstage by the comedian Ricky Gervais in his Fame stage show. A reference to the rumours is also made in British sitcom The Vicar of Dibly, with a hamster substituted for the more common gerbil and on the British comedy show This Morning With Richard Not Judy. The gerbil 'myth' with regards to Gere is also referenced in Family Guy, season 5, episode 3. However, as verified by snopes.com these rumours have no basis in fact.[10]

Richard Gere Biography (4403 words)
The rumour spread that Gere, apparently a closet homosexual and a decadent pervert, had wrapped a gerbil up in masking-tape and slipped it into his anus, in the hope that its struggles to escape (I gotta get OUT of this shit-hole!) would be uniquely pleasurable.
Richard had never been allowed to escape the rumours that sprang up after American Gigolo and, as Crawford had suffered similar accusations, as a couple they were constantly under fire.
Here Gere was well cast as a Dallas gynaecologist who knows everything about women's bodies but nothing about their minds, thus he can't cope with his wife, Farrah Fawcett's breakdown or the problems of his daughters, played by Kate Hudson and Tara Reid.
