In 2019, the Globe claimed Julia Roberts and Richard Gere believed they were soulmates. The paper alleged Roberts and Gere were “secretly carrying a torch for each other” for years despite being wed to other people.
An insider added the former costars had “incredibly strong feelings” for each other but won’t act on their feelings due to their respective spouses. While Roberts and Gere have remained on good terms throughout the years, the idea they were in love was completely fabricated.
In the summer of 2019, OK! disclosed Gere and Roberts were teaming up for a Pretty Woman reunion tour. An alleged insider revealed to the outlet that the former cast-mates had other motives for going on this supposed “tour.” The source disclosed the two were looking forward to catching up over “cozy dinners” but once again, didn’t want to jeopardize their marriages.
Gossip Cop had already corrected the narrative that Gere and Roberts had “feelings” for each other and there was no other news of a tour for Pretty Woman happening. Given the popularity of the film, if there was ever going to be a “reunion” of any sort, every news outlet in America would’ve reported on it.
