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. Having started his career in the 1970s, 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 for roles in films like the drama Looking for Mr. Goodbar (1977) and Terence Malick's Days of Heaven (1978). However, Gere 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 that experienced its fair share of highs and lows, Richard Gere maintained a consistent film presence, frequently surprising audiences with new surges of craft and charm.
