Richard Gere's quotes

  • I don't want to be a personality.
  • [on George W. Bush] We have a President right now who lies constantly and gets away with it, apparently.
  • [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.
  • 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.
  • [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 [they] somehow, like music, contrapuntally inform each other, in kind of a mysterious way."
  • [in 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.
  • [in 1993] My wife doesn't understand why I'm a sex symbol. She says I don't look different from a guy on the street.
  • [on Susan Sarandon] She's one of the few actresses you can think of who, besides being a terrific technician, is also funny, sexy, and womanly. Susan's a very modern lady, and she never stops taking chances.
