Richard Gere, Homeless?
You heard it here.
Actor, Richard Gere went into New York City as a homeless man, in form of a new character for his new movie, “Time Out Of Mind”.
According to the New York Post, a man who sells newspapers on Park Avenue near East 42nd Street told them, “I saw him. He looked like a natural homeless guy. He didn’t seem like he was acting. He was an excellent homeless man,” said Mizan Rahman “He was putting his hand in the trash. He looked like a real homeless guy finding something . . . like the homeless men I see in many different places.”
Here is the real life plot twist- I guess he was so convincing that a kindhearted woman gave him a bag full of food, not realizing that this man was a million dollar, award winning actor.
Who knew that Richard Gere would sit around New York, Midtown chugging a beer on a bench, sitting on a sidewalk, and would go through trashcans while filming the movie?
