Did you hear the one about Richard Gere and a gerbil?
Back in the ’90s, a rumor surface claiming the Pretty Woman star was rushed to a hospital with a gerbil lodged up inside his rectum.
While it was never confirmed, the story gained worldwide notoriety and continues to haunt the actor to this day.
But there’s another theory that suggests the story goes back even farther and was allegedly started by fellow actor Sylvester Stallone.
This theory claims that Stallone started the rumor after not getting along with Gere while working on the 1974 film The Lords of Flatbush.
Gere was fired from the film and allegedly blamed Stallone not only for losing the gig but for starting the rodent rumor.
Stallone denies having anything to do with any of it.
What do you think? Do you believe any of the Richard Gerbil, er, Gere story?
