Book Description

29 Nov 1996
This is a biography of the actor, Richard Gere, who found Hollywood stardom in the 1980s with films such as "American Gigolo", "Yanks", "An Officer and a Gentleman" and "Breathless". The book traces Gere's life and career from his staunchly Methodist middle-class upbringing to his present role as a Buddhist and a champion of good causes. It examines how he has been determined to remain an individual, almost dismissive of his career, and living down his celebrity image. The book looks at his college success, his musical talents and failings, his West end hits in "Grease", his more recent films, including "Pretty Woman", "Sommersby" and "First Knight", and his marriage to supermodel, Cindy Crawford.

This is the only biography of Richard Gere I have seen so naturally I was eager to read it. The book is a collection of facts/information that any true RG follower would already know so I didn't feel as if I was discovering anything new. However, the best part for me was the beginning of the book because it went into Richard's early life which filled in the gaps in my knowledge. I have been a fan for 20 years so the biography was extremely welcome and I'd say worth it for RG fans.
