Woman who gave homeless man her left-over pizza later finds out he was Hollywood icon

42 year-old French tourist Karine Gombeau, has found her self famous after she stopped by to give her pizza to who she thought was a homeless man. Unknown to her, that homeless man was legendary actor, Richard Gere who was playing the part of a homeless man and was on the set of his new film 'Time Out of Mind'.

The tourist saw Gere, 64, standing outside of Grand Central Station at approximately 5:45pm on Tuesday. According to her, after exiting a pizzeria in Little Italy, she saw him digging through a trash bin and drinking a beer from a brown paper bag. Touched by the sorry sight, she offered him leftovers from an “enormous” pizza that she, her husband and 15-year-old son had ordered .

Gere: What’s in the bag?

Karine : Je suis désolée [I am sorry], but the pizza is cold.

Gere: Thank you so much. God bless you.

She was shocked to see herself in a newspaper two days later that the man she extended her generosity to was 64 year old Gere, reportedly worth $100 million.

It was magical . . . It’s crazy, this story. It’s unimaginable that something like this could happen.I think he’s very handsome, even at his age,” she added. “ ‘Pretty Woman’ was not my favorite movie, but I ­really loved ‘Chicago.
