Due to his performances in legendary movies in the 1990s, Richard Gere was a real sex symbol. His most well-known film is perhaps Julia Roberts’ “Pretty Woman.” It should be emphasized that Richard Gere has never been linked to any negative things like drunkenness, drug abuse, or other problems.
Richard Gere was and continues to be a highly gorgeous and handsome man. He was born in 1949 and has experimented in painting since he was a young boy, but he said that after finishing high school, he was really lost and had no idea what he should do with the rest of his life.
He attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst where he majored in philosophy and cinema but dropped out after just two years to focus on acting.
Richard then appeared in a number of films in Seattle and New York theaters, but his breakthrough part was in “American Gigolo.” Due to the film’s nude scenes, there were a lot of doors that opened for Richard after it.
The 1982 movie “An Officer and a Gentleman” was the next one, and it was a huge success, notably financially. Despite having a 6 million dollar budget, the movie raised 130 million dollars, according to some reviewers, making it the greatest of 1982. The renowned movie “Pretty Woman,” which was released in 1990 and is still widely seen today, came next.
Richard portrayed Edward Lewis, a wealthy businessman who falls in love with Julia Roberts who played a prostitute on Sunset Boulevard.
Richard claimed that everything was fantastic on set and that it was quite simple to film since the cast was perfect.
Only $ 300,000 was paid to Julia Roberts for her part in “Pretty Woman” when she was just starting out in her career. Given his popularity and notoriety at the time, Richard was presumably paid several million dollars for his part.
But although though Julia didn’t get paid well, her job gave her plenty of professional options.
Richard first declined the job in this movie and did so a number of times, but after dining with Julia Roberts and the director Gary Marshall, he decided to change his mind and take the role.
Richard Gere went on to play several roles and win numerous accolades. In 2002, he received a Golden Globe for his performance in “Chicago.”
Richard, who said that he was very picky about his jobs, claimed that it wasn’t the money that motivated him to pursue his profession further. Only movies that Richard enjoyed and felt good about him were of appeal to him as an actor. Even though he made a lot of money, he recently retired and stopped acting in as many shows.
The actor is thought to be worth 120 million dollars, and he is the owner of 3.2 million-dollar luxury vehicles.
In 2005, he also purchased a $6.9 million home in Sag Harbor, New York, and spent additional money renovating it.
Richard decided to sell the property in 2013, and Matt Lauer paid $36.5 million to purchase it. Richard still has a variety of residences.
Nobody should be surprised that Richard had connections with attractive ladies, in my opinion. Richard first met Cindy Crawford in 1988, and the two started dating soon after. Despite the fact that Richard was 17 years older than Cindy, they became the most well-known couple in Hollywood. They got married in Las Vegas in 1991, but they chose to get divorced in 1995.
Richard married again in 2002 to actress Carey Lowell.
Unfortunately, their marriage also ended in divorce in 2013, even though the two had a kid together. After 4 years, the divorce was finally completed in 2016, and it is reported that Richard had to pay a hefty sum of money.
Richard and Alejandra Silva started dating in 2014, and they were married in 2018. She claimed to be really happy and to feel as though she is living in a fairy tale.
The two of them are happily married with two kids of their own. They make an effort to offer their kids the best. Alejandra said that her spouse constantly makes her laugh and is extremely kind with her. She is really happy with Richard.
