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.
