Richard Gere: 'Pretty Woman' Suuuuuuuucked

Richard Gere has been a major movie actor for decades now, becoming an A-list superstar thanks to the massive 1990 international blockbuster "Pretty Woman," arguably the most popular and successful romcom of all time.

But how does Gere feel nowadays the meal ticket that's fed him for the rest of his professional life?

He thinks it sucks. On ice.

"It’s my least favorite thing," Gere recently told Woman's Day during an interview about his upcoming financial drama "Arbitrage." "People ask me about that movie, but I've forgotten it. That was a silly romantic comedy. This is a much more serious movie that has some real cause and effect."

Of course, there are lots of people who have issues with "Pretty Woman," mainly because it's one of those cliched "hooker with a heart of gold" stories (not that anybody could resist the adorable Julia Roberts). But it's not the film's glorification of prostitution that has Gere in a bunch, but rather it's glorification of something apparently far more damaging to society: Big business and the folks who practice it.

"It made those guys seem dashing, which was so wrong," Gere said. "Thankfully, today, we are all more skeptical of those guys."

If only all those other businessmen could find just the love of a good hooker, right Richard?
