Richard Gere slams ‘Pretty Woman’ saying, “I’ve forgotten it. That was a silly romantic comedy.”

I really hate when celebrities get all full of themselves, and trash the movies that made them famous. I know Richard Gere was famous before ‘Pretty Woman’, but that was one of those classic movies that sort of shot him into stratosphere – so to speak. So to hear him trash the movie – makes me think he’s an idiot, in all honesty.

In an astonishing new interview, Richard Gere has blasted the movie, arguably the most famous of his career, labelling it a ‘silly romcom’.

The 62-year-old actor added to Australian magazine Woman’s Day magazine that he believes his character in the film even helped trigger the worldwide economic meltdown.

Speaking to Woman’s Day magazine, he said: ‘People ask me about that movie but I’ve forgotten it.

‘That was a silly romantic comedy.’

He also says the character he played in the movie, Edward Lewis, glorified brash Wall St financiers.

Gere added: ‘It made those guys seem dashing, which was wrong. Thankfully, today, we are all more sceptical of those guys.’

In the outspoken interview, Gere also appears to dismiss the relationships he had with the likes of Kim Basinger, Uma Thurman and Priscilla Presley more than 20 years ago.

He said: ‘In the 1980s, relationships were all about status.’

It reminds me of Katherine Heigl trashing ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and ‘Knocked Up’. Like just shut your mouth and be thankful. Who cares what you really think.

Josh Brolin loved kissing Megan Fox

91021X1_BROLIN_B-GR_01

Josh Brolin made the most of his love scenes with sexy Megan Fox during filming for Jonah Hex, because he wanted to take “revenge” on his actress wife Diane Lane for all of her steamy onscreen clinches.

The Milk actor plays disfigured bounty hunter Hex in the Western, a big screen adaptation of the popular comic books, with Fox – who is regularly named as one of the sexiest women in the world – as his love interest.

And he admits he reveled in the opportunity to make Lane envious because she has enjoyed romancing leading men like Richard Gere, Viggo Mortensen and French actor Olivier Martinez over the years.

He says, “I made out with Megan Fox, which was nice. Everybody says it’s very uncomfortable doing love scenes. My wife has done a few movies with a couple of love scenes, maybe this was maybe a revenge of mine, of some sort. If you look at it from that perspective, it’s kind of like the ultimate revenge. Megan Fox is the ultimate revenge, you hear what I’m saying?”

Brolin struggled to overcome the obstacle of heavy make-up to kiss Fox, but eventually managed to master his technique.

He adds, “The thing is for me, I had a prosthetic on my face because as Jonah Hex, the character, half of my face is burned, so it’s kind of difficult to figure out to get your tongue around (the mouthpiece). I’d love to say it was really, really tough but it went really smoothly.”
