New York, April 25: Richard Gere was offered a bag of food by a woman recently, who took him to be some homeless man roaming on the streets.
According to New York Post, 64-year-old Golden Globe-winning star, who was playing the role of a homeless man for his upcoming film 'Time Out of Mind', was so convincing that women failed to recognize him.
But the 'Pretty Woman' star continued to play the part without disclosing his identity and happily took the bag thanking the woman for her kindness.
The actor, who sported a ski cap and scruffy facial hair, was dressed in tattered clothes while he munched on a burger from a trash can near Grand Central Station and not a single New Yorker recognized the handsome star.
A newspaper vendor said that he saw the star but he looked like a natural homeless chap and didn't seem like he was acting at all. (ANI)
