Richard Gere surprised at Robert Pattinson’s fame

While Robert Pattinson’s mega fame seems indisputable, not everyone is aware of it. Richard Gere, for example, had no idea just how famous the Twilight actor is.

Sure, Robert Pattinson may be a household name to most, but not all.

When Richard Gere met Pattinson on Friday during a luncheon in Los Angeles in honour of the former’s newest film, Arbitrage, he had no idea just how famous Pattinson really is.

“He was a perfectly nice guy, but I had no idea,” the actor told E! News. “But I was getting calls from my wife going, ‘What are you doing with him? He’s so cute, but what are you doing with him?'”

Gere is, of course, married to former model and actress Carey Lowell. Now, we’ve learned that she is an R.Pattz appreciator. Coincidentally so are we — call us, maybe?

“My wife is aware of these things,” the 63-year-old quipped. “I don’t know that she’s a fan.”

We at least know Lowell has excellent taste in men! Richard Gere, Robert Pattinson… Stellar choices, right there.

Now Gere is more aware of one of Hollywood’s fastest rising stars. Opinions?
