Richard Gere: 'Pretty Woman was graphic'
Published Feb 28 2010, 14:26 GMT | By Marcell Minaya Richard Gere
has claimed that audiences have forgotten how "graphic" Pretty Woman
was, because it was a Walt Disney film.
The Brooklyn's Finest
star, who co-starred with Julia Roberts in the 1990 romantic comedy, has insisted that women of all ages have seen the feature countless times and yet have seemed to have forgotten the "graphic" nature of the film.
Speaking to Global Grind
, Gere said: "What people forget in Pretty Woman
, not a day goes by that I don’t have someone come up to me and say, 'My wife has seen it 85 times, my daughter has seen it'; that there is in fact a b**wjob in the beginning of Pretty Woman
,which is a fairly graphic one, but you don’t remember this because it’s a Disney movie."
When asked about his thoughts about making a film about interracial dating, he added: "I still want to do an interracial thing, a man and a woman interracial story, which doesn’t hit any obvious notes at all, something much more acknowledging of the realities of two people."
Earlier this month, Roberts ruled out
appearing in a sequel to Pretty Woman
also stars Don Cheadle, Ethan Hawke and Wesley Snipes. The Antoine Fuqua-directed crime drama arrives in US cinemas on March 5. As of yet, no UK release date has been announced.
