Richard Gere (born Richard Tiffany Gere in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on August 31, 1949) is an award-winning actor. He began his acting career in the 70s, starring in Looking for Mr. Goodbar, and Days of Heaven. However, in 1980 his role in American Gigolo created the image of a sex symbol — one that he held ever since. He later starred in hit films such as Arbitrage, Pretty Woman and An Office and a Gentleman. We saw a different side of him when he starred in the movie-musical, Chicago, which he won a Screen Actors Guild Award and a Golden Globe Award for.
