We were craving to see the magic of Richard Gere and Julia Roberts back from their classic movie, Pretty Woman. And guess what, we saw how the Pretty Woman stars look like after 25 years at their reunion.
The cast of Pretty Woman were reunited on a TV show show, to celebrate the film's 25th anniversary. Stars Julia Roberts, Richard Gere, Hector Elizondo and Laura San Giacomo joined director Garry Marshall for a chat with Matt Lauer of the "Today" show about how they all came together to make the classic film. This is the first time the cast members and director have reunited since 1990.
During the interview the cast revealed some secrets about the movie, including that initially Gere was not keen on the part of Edward at all. "The joke was you could put a suit on a goat and it would work," Gere said of his character in the initial script. "So I didnt get it."
But all it took for Gere to get onboard was a meeting with Roberts, who had already signed on to play Vivian, as the two realised they had instant chemistry. "We loved each other immediately, it was a really great thing," Gere said.
Director Marshall also recalled that the film was originally titled "3,000" and focused more on drug addiction. It was only when the director came along that the film began to resemble what we now remember as "Pretty Woman".
Big news for Pretty Woman fans. 25 years later, the classic rom-com is heading to the stage as a musical. Director Garry Marshall is working on adapting the movie into a Broadway musical, People reports.
