Richard Gere Net Worth: Richard Gere is an American actor who has a net worth of $100 million dollars. Richard Gere began his career in the 70s and is probably most widely recognized for his work in such films as "Pretty Woman", "An Officer and a Gentleman", and "Chicago". He has been nominated for multiple Golden Globe and SAG Awards, among other acting honors, and he also campaigns for human rights in Tibet.

Born Richard Tiffany Gere on August 31, 1949, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he is a versatile actor that has been long regarded as one of the most bankable leading men in Hollywood. Gere made also the headlines away from the cameras like his high profile yet brief marriage to supermodel Cindy Crawford, as well as his spiritual convictions to Buddhism and political support of the region of Tibet. In his early days, he emerged as an up-and-coming talent both on and off-Broadway, and he soon garnered attention from roles in films like the drama Looking for Mr. Goodbar (1977) and Terence Malick's Days of Heaven (1978). However, Gere really entered the limelight in 1980 for his role in the film American Gigolo, which established him as a leading man and a sex symbol. He further solidified his status as a top leading man starring in several hit films, including An Officer and a Gentleman (1982), Pretty Woman (1990), Primal Fear (1996), Arbitrage (2012) and Chicago (2002), which fetched him a Golden Globe Award as Best Actor, as well as a Screen Actors Guild Award as part of the Best Cast. Over a four decade long career, Richard Gere maintained a consistent film presence, frequently surprising audiences with new surges of craft and charm.
