"I do think that good actors can do any part. It doesn't mean that they are the best ones to do it."

Richard Tiffany Gere (born August 31, 1949 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is an American actor.

He began acting in The '70s, most notably playing a supporting role in Looking for Mr. Goodbar and a starring role in Days of Heaven. He came to prominence in The '80s for his role in the film American Gigolo, which established him as a leading man and a sex symbol. He went on to star in several hit films, including An Officer and a Gentleman, Pretty Woman, Primal Fear, Arbitrage, and Chicago, for which he won a Golden Globe Award as Best Actor, as well as a Screen Actors Guild Award as part of the Best Cast.

He's also known for his four-year marriage to Cindy Crawford in The '90s. And for something about a gerbil.
