NEW YORK, NY – Richard Gere found himself in the middle of a hoax that got him a yummy hand out when a woman saw, who she thought was a homeless man and gave him an ‘I love New York’ bag filled with food.

But this $100-million actor doesn’t need any handouts. If anything he should be the one giving the hand outs.

Richard Gere made quite the convincing hobo. You might recognize this steamy celeb in a reversed role.

Looks like he was the pretty woman in this story; except not so pretty or a woman.

But he’s not supposed to be beautiful. He’s “Gere-ing” up for a new movie, ‘Time Out of Mind’, where he plays a homeless man looking for his estranged daughter.

Now he owes this generous lady a “Pretty Woman” experience, time to cough up the green, Mr. Gere.
