Gere Bares His Own Butt
Richard Gere's butt double was left on the sidelines of his new movie, because the 57-year-old actor insisted on revealing his own backside.
In The Hunting Party the actor plays a veteran war correspondent on an assignment in Bosnia with his protege, played by Terrence Howard.
Filmmakers recruited a double to strip off for a scene where Gere's character is forced to strip off on an airport run-way.
Director Richard Shepard tells New York gossip column PageSix, "We had a butt double standing by."
But Gere insisted on playing the full part. Shepard adds, "It didn't take a lot" to convince Gere to undress.
