Morning Man Encore: Richard Gere!
Editor’s Note: Richard Gere is currently getting Oscar buzz for his acclaimed performance in the film Arbitrage. He was featured as a Morning Man back on Jul 31, 2009
It’s hard to believe that Richard Gere has been a movie star for more than 30 years now and remains one of the sexiest men on screen. When I watched him opposite Diane Lane in last year’s Nights in Rodanthe, I could not keep my eyes off of him.
What makes this all the more amazing is that on Aug. 31, he will turn 60 years old. Quite the silver fox!
His film resume spans the 70s (Days of Heaven, Looking for Mr. Goodbar) the 80s (American Gigolo, An Officer and a Gentlemen) the 90s (Pretty Woman, Internal Affairs, Somersby, Runaway Bride) to the current decade (Chicago, Shall We Dance, Unfaithful).
Through it all, my pal Lorna Harris has adored him! We went to the Huey Lewis and the News concert last night and on the way home, she suggested Gere for today’s Morning Man. If you have any suggestions for future Morning Men, put their name in a comment on this post. If you tell me why they appeal to you, I’ll give you credit in the blog!
