I hven’t seen Richard Gere in a long time. I totally thought he retired from acting to become a Buddhist monk or something. But either “retiring” from the spotlight wasn’t exactly his choice, or he’s been undercover long enough for everyone’s memories of Pretty Woman and a certain gerbil scandal to degrade.
At any rate, he made a joint appearance with Bono in New York, and chose the event to remind America just how creepy and disjointed his sexual preferences are. Thankfully, he remains under his self-imposed vow of silence. Bono, instead, spoke for him.
Among those applauding House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s commitment to humanitarian issues at a private event in New York on Tuesday: U2 frontman Bono and actor Richard Gere
“No one has fought harder than Nancy Pelosi since the day she came into office 25 years ago,” Bono, who co-founded the anti-poverty campaign ONE, said. “Millions of people all over the world owe their lives to Nancy and the bipartisan coalition that fought to contain the AIDS epidemic, not just here in America, but in the poorest parts of this planet.”
Calling her leadership “indispensable,” Bono said Pelosi has “reached across the aisle in this fight and worked with presidents from left and right.”
The gerbil thing might have been inappropriate, but this is unforgivable.
