Richard Gere, ‘Arbitrage’ Star, On His Sporty Past

“He was very impressed that his dad had been a gymnast.”. To hear more about Gere’s first job, watch the video above.

We knew Richard Gere had a whole life before his star-making role in “American Gigolo,” but we didn’t know it involved a pommel horse.

His gymnast past impressed more than just us — his 12-year-old son, while watching the Olympics with his dad, was shocked to find out Gere used to pull off the same feats as the guys on TV.

Gere has since followed other pursuits; while he’s better known for acting, Gere and his wife also run a Relais and Chateaux, a boutique hotel and restaurant
