When actors don’t click at first, chances are high the movie they work together won’t be any good. That’s how Julia Roberts found her Richard Gere.

A relationship between Roberts and Gere

The thing is Julia Roberts had to beg Richard Gere to agree for the role as he felt to be the right person. She didn’t want the movie to go in vain, so Julia together with director Gary Marshall took a trip to NY and pleaded the actor to join the cast. Here’s how Julia described it in one of her interviews:

I just said ‘you have to do this movie, if you don’t do this movie and it falls apart and I lose this job it would just be terrible’. And I kinda pleaded with him in a very real way. And all three of us went out to dinner and um, I had a great time and he changed all our lives forever by agreeing to do this movie.
