Early life and education[edit] Gere was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His mother, Doris Ann (née Tiffany, 1924–2016),[1] was a housewife. His father, Homer George Gere (born 1922),[1] was an insurance agent for the Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company, and had originally intended to become a minister.[2] Gere is their eldest son and second child.[1] His paternal great-grandfather had changed the spelling of the surname from "Geer".[1] Both of his parents were Mayflower
Mayflower
descendants; Gere's ancestors include Pilgrims Francis Eaton, John Billington, George Soule, Richard Warren, Degory Priest, Francis Cooke, and William Brewster.[1] In 1967, Gere graduated from North Syracuse Central High School, where he excelled at gymnastics and music, playing the trumpet.[2] He attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst
University of Massachusetts Amherst
on a gymnastics scholarship, majoring in philosophy, but did not graduate, leaving after two years.[2][3] Career[edit] Stage[edit] Gere first worked professionally at the Seattle Repertory Theatre
Seattle Repertory Theatre
and Provincetown Playhouse
Provincetown Playhouse
on Cape Cod in 1969, where he starred in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. His first major acting role was in the original London stage version of Grease in 1973.[2] Gere was one of the first notable Hollywood
Hollywood
actors to play a homosexual character, starring as a gay Holocaust
Holocaust
victim in the 1979 Broadway production of Bent; Gere's performance earned him a Theatre World Award. Film[edit] He began appearing in Hollywood
Hollywood
films in the mid-1970s. Originally cast in a starring role in The Lords of Flatbush
The Lords of Flatbush
(1974), he was replaced after fighting with another star of the film, Sylvester Stallone. He played a small but memorable part in Looking for Mr. Goodbar (1977) and starred in director Terrence Malick's well-reviewed drama Days of Heaven
Days of Heaven
(1978).[2] The crime drama American Gigolo
American Gigolo
(1980) significantly boosted his profile and the romantic drama An Officer and a Gentleman (1982) (co-starring Debra Winger) cemented Gere's ascent to stardom, grossing almost $130 million[4] and winning two Academy Awards
Academy Awards
out of six nominations;[5] Gere himself received his first Golden Globe Award
Golden Globe Award
nomination.[6] For the remainder of the 1980s, Gere appeared in films of varying critical and commercial reception.[7][8] His career rebounded with the releases of Internal Affairs (1990) and Pretty Woman
Pretty Woman
(1990), the latter of which earned him his second Golden Globe Award nomination.[9] The 1990s saw Gere star in successful films including Sommersby
Sommersby
(1993), Primal Fear (1996) and Runaway Bride (1999) (which reunited him with his Pretty Woman
Pretty Woman
co-star Julia Roberts).[7] He also took a leading role in the action thriller The Jackal (1997), playing former IRA militant Declan Mulqueen; Gere affected an Irish accent for the role.[10] Gere was named People magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" in 1999. Not long thereafter, all in the same year, he appeared in the hit films The Mothman Prophecies (2002), Unfaithful (2002) and the Academy Award-winning musical film adaptation Chicago (2002),[2] for which he won his first Golden Globe Award. Gere's ballroom dancing drama Shall We Dance? (2004) was also a solid performer that grossed $170 million worldwide.[11] His next film, the book-to-screen adaptation Bee Season (2005), was a commercial failure.[12] Gere went on to co-star with Jesse Eisenberg
Jesse Eisenberg
and Terrence Howard
Terrence Howard
in The Hunting Party (2007), a thriller in which he played a journalist in Bosnia. He next appeared with Christian Bale, Heath Ledger
Heath Ledger
and Cate Blanchett
Cate Blanchett
in Todd Haynes' semi-biographical film about Bob Dylan, I'm Not There
I'm Not There
(2007); Gere was one of six actors to portray a variation of Dylan. Gere co-starred with Diane Lane
Diane Lane
in the romantic drama Nights in Rodanthe (2008). The film was widely panned by critics[13] (making #74 on The Times Worst Films of 2008 list),[14] but grossed over $84 million worldwide.[15] The film is Gere's most recent to have been produced entirely by a major film studio. Gere has expressed belief that his politics regarding Tibet and China, the latter an important financial resource for major studios, have made him persona non grata within Hollywood.[16] Gere embraced his apparent exile from Hollywood, appearing in independent features that garnered some of the best reviews of his career.[8] He was notably singled out for portraying businessman Robert Miller in Arbitrage (2012), earning his fourth Golden Globe Award nomination. Among many positive reviews,[17] Peter Travers
Peter Travers
of Rolling Stone
Rolling Stone
cited Gere's performance as "too good to ignore" and "an implosive tour de force".[18] Lou Lumenick of the New York Post further wrote " Richard Gere
Richard Gere
gives the best performance of his career".[19][20] Also in 2012, Gere received the Golden Starfish Award for Lifetime Achievement from the Hamptons International Film Festival and the Career Achievement Award from the Hollywood
Hollywood
Film Awards.[21][22] He had earlier received an award from the 34th Cairo International Film Festival in December 2010.[23] Gere made a notable departure from his traditional screen persona with Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer (2016). The political drama (written and directed by Academy Award-nominee Joseph Cedar) saw him portray Norman
Norman
Oppenheimer, a "small time Jewish 'fixer'". Gere himself described the character as an embodiment of the "sides of us we know are annoying and needy".[24] His portrayal of Oppenheimer was called "consistently, completely fascinating" by RogerEbert.com[25] and was singled out as a worthy Academy Award contender by Variety.[26] Personal life and activism[edit]

Gere presented with a Khata
Khata
by the 14th Dalai Lama, October 17, 2007

Gere had a relationship with actress Penelope Milford from 1971 to 1978.[27] He had affairs with Priscilla Presley
Priscilla Presley
in 1983[28] and Kim Basinger in 1986.[29] Gere was married to supermodel Cindy Crawford
Cindy Crawford
from 1991 to 1995. In November 2002, he married model and actress Carey Lowell.[30] They have a son, Homer James Jigme Gere, who was born in February 2000 and is named after Gere's and Lowell's fathers, as well as the Tibetan name Jigme.[2][31] In September 2013, the two separated after 11 years of marriage. The couple spent three years in highly contested divorce proceedings in Manhattan Supreme Court.[32][33] The case was settled in October 2016.[34] Gere was raised attending a Methodist
Methodist
church.[35][36] His interest in Buddhism
Buddhism
began when he was in his twenties.[37] He first studied Zen Buddhism[37] under Kyozan Joshu Sasaki.[37] After having studied Zen for five or six years,[37] in 1978 he traveled with the Brazilian painter Sylvia Martins[38] to Nepal, where he met many Tibetan monks and lamas.[38] He then met the 14th Dalai Lama
14th Dalai Lama
in India[37] and became a practicing Tibetan Buddhist of the Gelugpa
Gelugpa
school of Tibetan Buddhism[37] and an active supporter of the Dalai Lama.[2] Gere regularly visits Dharamshala, the headquarters of the Tibetan government-in-exile.[39] Gere is also an advocate for human rights in Tibet. He is a co-founder of the Tibet House, creator of The Gere Foundation and Chairman of the Board of Directors for the International Campaign for Tibet. Because he supports the Tibetan Independence Movement, he is permanently banned from entering the People's Republic of China.[40][41] In 1993, Gere was banned as an Academy Award
Academy Award
presenter after he denounced the Chinese government
Chinese government
in his capacity as presenter.[42][43] In September 2007, Gere called for the boycott of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games
2008 Beijing Olympic Games
to put pressure on China to make Tibet independent. He starred in a Free Tibet-themed Lancia

commercial featuring the Lancia

Delta.[44] On June 27, 2011, Gere meditated in Borobudur
Borobudur
Temple,[45] in Indonesia.

Gere visits USAID HIV/ AIDS
AIDS
"Operation Lighthouse" Project in Mumbai.

Gere actively supports Survival International, an organization dedicated to protecting the rights and lands of tribal peoples throughout the world.[38] He contributed some of his writing for the book, We Are One: A Celebration of Tribal Peoples, released in October 2009.[46] Gere discussed the persecution and loss of land of the Jummas as an example of a tragic story that repeats itself in different continents of the world, calling attention to the crime against their peaceful culture and how it reflects on humankind's own relationship with nature and capacity to survive.[47] The royalties from the sale of the book go to the indigenous rights organization, Survival International. Gere campaigns for ecological causes and AIDS
AIDS
awareness. He currently serves on the board of directors for Healing the Divide, an organization that supports global initiatives to promote peace, justice and understanding.[48] He helped to establish the AIDS
AIDS
Care Home, a residential facility in India for women and children with AIDS, and also supports campaigns for AIDS
AIDS
awareness and education in that country. In 1999, he created the Gere Foundation India Trust to support a variety of humanitarian programs in India.[49] On April 15, 2007, Gere appeared at an AIDS
AIDS
awareness rally in Jaipur, India. During a live news conference to promote condom use among truck drivers, he embraced Bollywood
Bollywood
superstar Shilpa Shetty, dipped her, and kissed her several times on the cheek. As a result of that gesture, a local court ordered the arrest of Gere and Shetty, finding them in violation of public obscenity laws. Gere has said the controversy was "manufactured by a small hard-line political party." About a month later, a two-judge bench headed by the Chief Justice of India, K. G. Balakrishnan, described the case as "frivolous" and believed that such complaints (against celebrities) were filed for "cheap publicity" and have brought a bad name to the country. They ruled that Gere would remain free to enter the country.[50] In June 2008, Gere appeared in a Fiat
Fiat
commercial for the European market, driving a new Lancia
Lancia
Delta from Hollywood
Hollywood
to Tibet. The commercial concluded with a tagline of "the power to be different". The commercial was reported in Chinese newspapers, and Fiat
Fiat
apologized to China.[citation needed] Gere's name is on some lists of famous vegetarians.[51][52] However, he is not a vegetarian.[53] In 2016, he endorsed Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton
for president and donated $2,700 to her campaign.[54] Gere is an accomplished musician, composing and performing the “Pretty Woman” piano theme and a guitar solo in “Runaway Bride”. He also learned tap dance for “Chicago” and karate for “An Officer and a Gentleman”. [55] Honors and awards[edit] In 1995, he was the President of the Jury at the 19th Moscow International Film Festival.[56] On May 17, 2012, Albanian President, Bamir Topi
Bamir Topi

George Eastman Museum
honored Gere with the George Eastman Award for distinguished contribution to the art of film.[58] Political views[edit] In 2010, Gere stated that the war in Iraq wasn't supported by the American people and that the George W. Bush administration
George W. Bush administration
"bullied" Americans into the decision. He called George W. Bush
George W. Bush
a very "poor president".[59] "I'm very sorry about what the U.S. has done in Iraq. This war has been a tragedy for everyone. I hope that the people of Iraq can rebuild their country," Gere said in a press conference held on the sidelines of the 34th Cairo International Film Festival.[60] Filmography[edit]
