Richard Gere was born on August 31, 1949, in Philadelphia, United States. As a student, he abandoned his studies in philosophy and dramatic art at the University of Massachusetts to devote himself entirely to his acting projects.

At the same time, he tries to start a career as a trumpeter. He is particularly talented but gives up, disappointed by the world of music. Richard Gere then decides to return to the stage and manages to find his place in Broadway shows.

The cinema ends up reaching out to him and the films American Gigolo and Officer and Gentleman make him an essential actor. After a few more disappointing roles, the success of Pretty Woman puts Richard Gere back in the spotlight.

The 1990s are good for the career of the actor who turns in Primal Fear, The Jackal, and Just married (or almost). The 2000s are less so, with however some successes such as Doctor T and Women, Chicago, and Hatchi.

Richard Gere Life & Career

Son of a farmer, graduate in philosophy, Richard Gere began his career as an actor playing plays at Princetown University and at the Repertory Theater in Seattle. He then appeared on Broadway in Grease, A Midsummer Night's Dream, or The Tame Shrew.

In 1975, Richard Gere shot his first feature film entitled Report to the commissioner. But it is with In Search of Mr. Goodbar (1977) by Richard Brooks, Les Moissons du Ciel (1978) by Terrence Malick, and Yanks (1979) by John Schlesinger that the new Hollywood playboy confirms his acting skills.

Richard Gere truly rose to star rank thanks to his performances as a professional gigolo in American gigolo (1980) by Paul Schrader, a naval officer in Officer and Gentleman (1982) by Taylor Hackford, and a young outsider in A bout de breath made in USA (1983) by Jim McBride.

Glory only lasts a short time and his subsequent films, Cotton club (1984) by Francis Ford Coppola, Behind the scenes of power (1986) by Sidney Lumet, Sans pitié ByRichard Pearce, and Private Affairs (1990) by Mike Figgis, are business failures.

In 1990, the enormous success that is Pretty Woman by Garry Marshall relaunched his career. Richard Gere continues with two American remakes of French films: Sommersby (1993) by Jon Amiel and Intersection (1994) by Mark Rydell. From then on, he specialized in the thriller (Hot Blood for Cold Blood Murder (1992) by Phil Joanou, Fear Primal (1996) by Gregory Hoblit) and romance ( Just married (or almost) (1999) by Garry Marshall).

2001 was a pivotal year for Richard Gere. In Unfaithful, the latter plays a cheated husband and leaves the role of the fiery lover to Olivier Martinez. He also dabbled in two cinematic genres they had never experienced before the supernatural thriller with Shadow Prophecy and the musical with Chicago by Rob Marshall.

In this adaptation of the famous show played on Broadway, the actor pushes the song alongside Catherine Zeta-Jones and Renée Zellweger. He continues his momentum, with Shall we dance? Monsieur Clark's New Life, where this time he's dance partner Jennifer Lopez and love partner Susan Sarandon.

In 2006, he gave the reply to Juliette Binoche in The Words Found and then played in 2007 in I'm Not There by Todd Haynes, a film in which the singer Bob Dylan is played by six different actors (among them, we count also Christian Bale and Heath Ledger ).

The following year, the actor again collaborated with Diane Lane (afterUnfaithful in 2002 and Cotton Club in 1984) for Nights in Rodanthe, a romantic drama adapted from Nicholas Sparks' bestseller. Along with his acting career, Richard Gere is also involved in various political causes, such as human rights or the cultural recognition of Tibet (converted to Buddhism, he is the friend and disciple of the Dalai Lama ).

After the failure, both commercially and critically, of the biopic Amelia, in which he meets Hilary Swank, the actor continues in 2010 with two expected films: The Brooklyn Elite, a crime drama centered on four. crossed destinies directed by Antoine Fuqua( Training Day ), and Hatchi, a "canine" drama, in which the actor meets the director Lasse Hallström, with whom he had already worked on Forger in 2007.
