Richard Gere Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Richard Tiffany Gere was born on 31 August 1949, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA, into a family descended from ‘Mayflower’ passengers who arrived in America 400 years previously. Richard is a popular and sought-after actor, who is perhaps best know for his starring roles in ‘An Officer and a Gentlemean’ and ‘Pretty Woman’.

So just how rich is Richard Gere? Sources estimate that Richard has an estimated net worth of $100 million, which wealth he has earned mainly through his career as a film actor. He is the nominee and the winner of various famous awards including a Golden Globe Award, Screen Actors Guild Award and others.

Richard Gere Net Worth $100 Million

Richard Gere’s family were relatively normal, with no connections to the entertainment industry; is father, Homer was an insurance agent and his mother, Doris a housekeeper. Richard was educated at North Syracuse Central High School, and then at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, but didn’t graduate, leaving to begin his career as an actor, actually on the stage. His first starring role was in ‘Grease’ on the London stage in 1973, but he then moved to California to break into film acting, but live performances had seen the start of growth to his net worth.

In 1975 Gere appeared on the big screen with his first role of Billy in Milton Katselas directed film ‘Report to the Commissioner’.Later, Richard took part in films ‘Baby Blue Marine’ directed by John D. Hancock, ‘Looking for Mr. Goodbar’ written and directed by Richard Brooks and ‘Bloodbrothers’ directed by Robert Mulligan.

In 1978 Richard increased his net worth considerably starring in the drama film written and directed by Terrence Malick ‘Days of Heaven’, which brought him a David di Donatello Award for the Best Foreign Actor. In 1980 his sudden prominence as a sex symbol brought him the role of Julian in ‘American Gigolo’ written and directed by Paul Schrader. Moreover, Gere continued his successful net worth accumulation with a nomination for a Golden Globe Award for the Best Actor in a drama film directed by Taylor Hackford ‘An Officer and a Gentleman’ in 1982. Afterwards, he starred in many films, including ‘The Honorary Consul’ directed by John Mackenzie, ‘Breathless’ co-written and directed by Jim McBride, ‘The Cotton Club’ co-written and directed by Francis Ford Coppola, ‘King David’ directed by Bruce Beresford, ‘No Mercy’ directed by Richard Pearce, ‘Power’ directed by Sidney Lumet, ‘Miles From Home’ directed by Gary Sinise and ‘Internal Affairs’ directed by Mike Figgis.

In addition to the above, Richard Gere’s net worth rose significantly after he landed the role of Edward Lewis alongside Julia Roberts who took the role of Vivian Ward in the romantic comedy film ‘Pretty Woman’ directed by Garry Marshall. It is considered to be the most financially successful film in this category as the box office takings were over $463 million. Moreover, the film brought a Golden Globe nomination for the Best Actor. Richard was then nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for an Outstanding Supporting Actor for his role in ‘And the Band Played On’ directed by Roger Spottiswoode.

In 1997, Richard increased his net worth winning a National Board of Review Freedom of Expression Award for a leading role in ‘Red Corner’ directed by Jon Avnet. Gere’s net worth jumped again after Rob Marshall’s directed film ‘Chicago’ was released, in which Gere starred alongside Renee Zellweger and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Richard also won a Broadcast Film Critics Association Award, a Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award for his outstanding acting in the film. The other films that have brought Gere awards or nominations have been ‘The Hoax’ directed by Lasse Hallstrom, ‘I’m Not There’ directed by Todd Haynes and ‘Arbitrage’ directed by Nicholas Jarecki.

Overall during an acting career spanning almost 40 years, Richard Gere has appeared in over 50 films, and been nominated for 15 awards of which he has won six. Of course this recognition did wonders for his net worth too.

In his personal life, Richard Gere has been married twice. His first marriage was to model Cindy Crawford from 1991 to 1995. His second marriage with to actress and model Carey Lowell in 2002 – the couple separated in 2013; they have a son. Gere is known as a strong advocate for Tibetan independence, partly through his long-term interest in Buddhism, and for supporting tribal peoples. He has written a book, ‘We Are One: A Celebration of Tribal Peoples’, released in 2009, some royalties of which he has donated to the aforementioned struggles.

#Quote
1 Here's a guy who's obviously Mussolini. How is it possible that people would be supporting this guy? You can try to find reasons. It's about how disillusioned they are, how afraid, how confused. Trump is a demagogue, a clown - but people like clarity. Here's this guy who says, 'I'm going to fix this problem for you. It doesn't matter how, I'll just take care of it'. He's finding villains everywhere and then telling people he'll get rid of them. We'll get rid of the Jews, the blacks. Anyone that we perceive as a problem, we'll get rid of. This is how it starts. Intelligent people aren't seeing this - don't make the mistake of thinking it's just idiots who are backing Trump - this kind of thinking is a slippery slope.
2 There doesn't appear to be any sort of basis for any of this. I have a feeling something hidden is at work here that will someday see the light of day. I keep asking myself where all this personal enmity between George Bush and Saddam Hussein comes from. It's like the story of Captain Ahab and the great white whale from Moby Dick. We have to say 'stop.' There's no reason for a war. At the moment Hussein is not threatening anybody. It'd be different if he was staring somebody down with a loaded gun in his hand. But there doesn't seem to be any indications whatsoever that this man poses an immediate threat to anybody. America has never paid any attention to other people, so it's absurd for Bush to say that it's all in the best interests of the Iraqi people. If the United States marches into Iraq without the backing of the United Nations, that will be done entirely without the backing of the American people.
3 [In 2012, reflecting on working with Debra Winger in the hit film An Officer and a Gentleman (1982)] I was delighted, she was perfect for the part...She has a really interesting quality. Again, I haven't seen this film in 30 years. But she is, she's really a kind of true heart in the camera. It's very hard to be as kind of open and unguarded and nice. You know, a nice person and kind of a genuine person and true heart on camera. That's not an easy thing to do. She's able to pull that off. I could never be that way. I was too complicated. There were too many things going on. Just the straightforward presence is an extremely difficult thing to do.
4 [1993] My wife doesn't understand why I'm a sex symbol. She says I don't look different from a guy on he street.
5 [1993] I've always maintained that actors are best when they find characters that are congruent with the emotions they're going through at the moment.
6 I love almost everything Ingmar Bergman did. I came out of that era, the '60s and '70s..., so all that and Michelangelo Antonioni and Federico Fellini are just great. Rainer Werner Fassbinder was a friend of mine, and I loved all his films too, and Werner Herzog. That whole time was when I was trying to figure out who I was, and stretching myself, and those are all the films and filmmakers that meant a lot to me.[2015]
7 [on Hachi: A Dog's Tale (2009)] Reading it captivated me immediately. It was very emotional and tense, even though I'd never heard of the story before that. My first thought was, I don't know if I want to act in this, but I certainly want to make it and help it along.
8 [on why he starred in The Mothman Prophecies (2002)] The emotional stuff was rich. In the beginning, my character's in the perfect job, he has a beautiful wife, they're talking about babies, they're buying a house, everything's great and then literally in the middle of laughing, there's a car accident and she's gone. Now if you put that on top of the metaphysical story of "Is there anything out there?", then you have something that has a lot of power.
9 [on his character Jesse Lujack from Breathless (1983)] Basically the root of him is music - music manifested by his moods. He uses the energy and emotions of the things around him to his own purposes. There's not guilt in him. He refuses guilt, he refuses despair. He turns despair around. He's a funny kind of character; he's not the kind of person you'd bring home to your mother and father. He'd be pocketing things; he doesn't see possessions as being personal. He has an outlaw mentality we haven't seen for a while.
10 [on Brooklyn's Finest (2009)] I read the script and I thought, this is really unusual. These three interlinking short stories that don't really interact. But somehow, like music, contrapuntally inform each other, in kind of a mysterious way.
11 I'm still like this guy who, like, washed his dad's car. I don't feel like I'm some sort of rarefied species of creature.
12 Pretty Woman (1990) is something I never would have done. Neither is An Officer and a Gentleman (1982). I had no interest in these scripts whatsoever. It was the same person knocking my door down on both of them, Jeffrey Katzenberg, first at Paramount, then at Disney, who was one of my first friends out here and still is. At the point of Pretty Woman (1990), I had been kind of out of things for a while. I consciously [had] just said, "Going off to do other things" and I fucked up my career to the point where [people weren't saying], "Well, let's get Gere to do that". I had to crawl a little bit to get scripts. Doing Internal Affairs (1990), for instance, was a very difficult decision for me to make because, potentially, that could have been such a piece of shit. It turns out to be one of my favorite movies and best experiences, too.
13 [on agent Ed Limato]: He was the bridge between old-time Hollywood and Hollywood present. Ed was a master at orchestrating all of the feelings correctly. He had a rare ability to read a script and see what could be.
14 [on George W. Bush] We have a President right now who lies constantly and gets away with it, apparently.
15 When I am there [Tibet], I am very happy. The Tibetans radiate. They literally send out light. His Holiness [the The Dalai Lama] generates love and compassion to every human being. He has committed himself to that. I haven't made that leap yet. I haven't given up self-aspiration. I still love making movies.
16 I don't want to be a personality.


Looks like we don't have Richard Tiffany Gere trademarks information. Sorry!

Is Richard Gere's Net Worth Deserved?

    LOL these are very entertaining, but you can only estimate what an actor is “worth”. And that is based on published salaries per film or project.
