- fun faith fact! Gere has spoken often publicly of his love of Buddhism
Richard Gere is one of the more outspokenly religious celebrities, and his religion of choice is Buddhism. Gere was raised in a Methodist home and studied Philosophy in his short lived college stint. It seems religion has always interested him, but he became enraptured with Buddhism while on a trip to Napal in the late '70s. Since he has become a practicing Buddhist and a fervent spokesperson for the people of Tibet. Photo courtesy of spaceoddisey.
