Richard Gere & Carey Lowell's Divorce Could Cost The Actor $100
Richard Gere split from wife Carey Lowell in December 2013 after nearly 12 years of marriage. The two recently came together at Manhattan Supreme Court to work out the financial details involving the actor's estimated $250 million fortune -- of which Lowell reportedly wants half.

An insider told the Daily Mail, "She wanted to stay married and keep their family together, but when Richard didn't, she decided to take him to the cleaners."

Depending on the source, the former couple split over reports that the actor cheated or because he preferred meditation to her partying ways. Gere is a dev...

pretty woman reunion
The Today show staged an epic reunion of the cast of the beloved 1990's film "Pretty Woman" and the complete cast was brought together for the first time since filming the romantic comedy.

NBC announced the epic sit-down with a tongue-in-cheek press release which stated, "Matt Lauer sits down with actors Julia Roberts, Richard Gere, Hector Elizondo, Laura San Giacomo, and director Garry Marshall for the 25th anniversary of the movie," the network said in a news release. "To miss it would be a big mistake. Big. Huge."

Julia Roberts (Vivian Ward) and Richard Gere (Edward Lewis) met up with ...

Padma Lakshmi
"Top Chef" star Padma Lakshmi and actor Richard Gere have ended their relationship before anyone even really knew they were dating.

The couple flew under the radar for about six months after news that the two began dating back in April surfaced, but Lakshmi appeared to have confirmed the split during a recent TV interview by saying she wasn't dating anyone.

A source tells the New York Post's Page Six column that the couple "decided they would be better as friends," adding that both stars have also been too busy working to focus on a relationship.

Rumor Patrol: Gwyneth Paltrow's Conscious Uncoupling Book, Selen
You can't go one week without hearing a ridiculous story involving some of your favorite celebrities. Thankfully, the Starpulse Rumor Patrol is here to sort out what's real and what's fake.

Gwyneth Paltrow's Conscious Uncoupling Book: Star reports Paltrow is penning a book on her recent divorce from Chris Martin to educate other couples. "In typical Gwyneth fashion, she thinks she will eventually become the expert on divorce and how to do it in a better way," they claim.

Verdict: False. While Paltrow does write books, we don't think she'd try to become an expert on divorce. A source tells...

Richard Gere & Padma Lakshmi Are 'Quietly' Dating
Actor Richard Gere, 64, and "Top Chef" host Padma Lakshmi, 43, are reportedly enjoying a May-December romance.

A source told the New York Post's Page Six: "They have been quietly spending some time together. It is all very new and recent, and happened while he has been filming in New York."

A separate insider told "It started very recently and quietly. It's very new. I wouldn't even go as far as calling them a couple. They are dating. It's the first time Padma has dated anyone since Teddy [Forstmann], and it's something she's been approaching very, very delicately. They're...

20 Extremely Religious Celebrities
Candace Cameron Bure of "Full House" fame and her brother Kirk Cameron ("Growing Pains") are very religious. As Kirk became an outspoken Christian evangelist and actor, Cameron also became more public with her faith in the late 1990s, writing for Christian websites, speaking at churches, and endorsing Christian organizations, businesses and charities.

And the actress says her belief in Christianity helped her battle bulimia.

She told Yahoo! in December 2013, "I turned to food for comfort and had to find a different source, 'cause clearly it wasn't a healthy way to deal with things. So tha...

Richard Gere Signed Up For 'Movie 43' As A Favor For A Friend

2/25/2013 2:06pm EST
Movie 43
Richard Gere has never seen Movie 43 and only signed up for an appearance in the flop all-star film as a favor for his producer friend Charles B. Wessler.

The Pretty Woman star joined Halle Berry, Emma Stone, Hugh Jackman and Naomi Watts on the impressive cast list for Peter Farrelly's recent project, but it bombed with critics and suffered disappointing sales at the box office.

In his oddball skit, Gere plays a company boss behind a new product called iBabe, a life-sized replica of a nude woman that functions as a music player, and now he has revealed his reasons for signing up for the...

Hilarious Looking 'Movie 43' Trailer Features Tons Of Stars, Gerard Butler As A Leprechaun

10/3/2012 6:09pm EDT
Movie 43
If you ask us, if Movie 43 is just half as funny as the trailer, it's destined to be a classic. We have no idea what it's about, other than it's actually 25 short films helmed by several different directors including Peter Farrelly, Elizabeth Banks, Bob Odenkirk, Brett Ratner and Griffin Dunne, and it features a huge, HUGE cast of A-list stars.

The film's greenband trailer (e.g.: approved-for-all-audiences) premiered during Tuesday night's episode of Tosh.0 on Comedy Central; and on Wednesday the very not-safe-for-work (NSFW) red-band trailer debuted on the network's website (according to...

Helen Mirren
Most people in Hollywood don't like to reveal their true age, but there are exceptions. Helen Mirren, who fluxuates between white and white/blonde hair, proudly wears her true color on screen and off.

Last year the actress, 67, was named the best body in show business by members of British gym chain LA Fitness. Apparently, age (and hair color) doesn't matter.

Some younger stars are also embracing the white/grey trend. Singers P!nk, Adam Lambert and Ellie Goulding have all experimented with the pigment-free shade.

George Clooney is often spotted with whisps of grey unless a film role call...

Review: Richard Gere Fully In His Element With Big Business Suspense Outing 'Arbitrage'

9/14/2012 10:51am EDT
There’s nothing better then when a really skilled suspense director uses his wares to amp up the tension. Greats like the late Sidney Lumet, Brian De Palma and even to a degree Danish director Nicholas Winding Refn with the "Pusher" series all know just how to keep the audience in a heightened state of anticipation. With his pressure cooker debut "Arbitrage," newbie director Nicholas Jarecki joins the club, showing not only that he has a firm handle on all things big business, but also real knack for pumping up the pressure and the unusual marriage of the two results in one very unique pi...

'Pretty Woman' Jewelry Box Scene Almost Scrapped

Pretty Woman
Pretty Woman director Garry Marshall wanted to play a trick on his hard partying leading lady Julia Roberts, but the onset prank became one of the film's most famous scenes.

The scene featuring Roberts' character reacting with shock when Richard Gere closes a jewelry box on her hand is much loved by fans of the 1990 romantic comedy.

However, Marshall has revealed it was just meant to be little scene for the cast and crew as revenge for Roberts staying out late the night before the shoot.

He tells Entertainment Tonight, "(She was) a kid, so she goes out and parties, and sometimes she p...

Richard Gere's Wife Carey Lowell Rejected His Bed & Breakfast Plans

Richard Gere and Carey Lowell
Richard Gere's actress wife Carey Lowell initially rejected his plans to turn a farmhouse in upstate New York into a luxury inn as she feared he would leave her to do all the work.

The Pretty Woman actor and his Law & Order star wife restored the building in Westchester County and opened the Bedford Post Inn in 2009, but Lowell wasn't keen on the idea at first as Gere had so many movie projects in the works.

Gere tells CNN, "She said no in the beginning. She said absolutely not."

Lowell adds, "It was crazy. It was a crazy thought. And to take it all on. And as I recall, Richard had to go...

Richard Gere
Richard Gere's publicist has lashed out at "false" reports suggesting the actor dismissed his most famous film Pretty Woman as "a silly romantic comedy."

The 1990 box office smash is one of the most successful rom-coms of all time, pulling in over $460 million at the box office, and Gere left fans stunned recently when he allegedly poured scorn on the movie, in which he played a successful businessman opposite Julia Roberts' hooker character, in a recent Australian interview.

According to Aussie magazine Woman's Day, Gere said of the film, "It's my least favorite thing. People ask me abo...

Richard Gere has paid tribute to the monks who set fire to themselves to demonstrate against China's occupation of Tibet, calling their protests "a pure act."

The star, a longtime Buddhist and outspoken campaigner for Tibetan rights, admits he was moved by the spate of Buddhist monks who have torched themselves to demand freedom in Tibet and the return of the exiled Dalai Lama.

He says, "It all really comes down to motivation. I mean none of these self-immolators have harmed anybody else. It is totally a self-sacrifice for their people, for others. So on that level it's a pure act. But I ...

If Tony Montana was the heavy of his illegal operation, then his right hand man Manny Ribera was most certainly the heart. Brought to life by then newbie actor Steven Bauer, Manny had both a danger and charisma that made him a perfect yin to Tony’s wild and unpredictable yang. So we here at Starpulse thought it only fitting that just in time for the tasty release of the "Scarface" Limited Edition Blu-ray hitting shelves Sept. 6 from Universal Home Video (check out the review below as well!), we wanted to get some movie geek insight about the flick from the bold Bauer himself.

Richard Gere Still Concerned With The Plight Of Tibetan People

6/23/2011 8:35am EDT
Richard Gere
Richard Gere is appalled that oppression is still very much part of Tibetan Buddhists' lives almost two decades after he captured the extent of China's occupation on camera.

The star and fervent Buddhist jetted to Seoul, Korea, on Wednesday to unveil a Tibet-themed photo exhibition entitled Pilgrim, which is compromised of over 60 snaps captured by Gere himself.

The actor took the heart-wrenching photographs during his 1993 trip to the area, and Gere is far from pleased to see the same unnecessary abuse and suffering he witnessed almost two decades ago - in both Tibet and China.

Leonardo DiCaprio And Kate Winslet Named Top Movie Couple

Leonardo DiCaprio
Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet's doomed relationship in 1997 film Titanic has earned them the title of most romantic onscreen couple of all time.

More than 500,000 people were polled for the ABC TV and People magazine movie rundown, and the stars earned almost a quarter of the votes for their turn in James Cameron's epic.

The romance between Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh in 1939 classic Gone with the Wind was rated the second most romantic film pairing, while Richard Gere and Julia Roberts' unlikely coupling in Pretty Woman landed them third in the survey.
