Richard Gere Movies

3 Unforgettable Movies of Richard Gere

Richard Gere has enjoyed a long and rewarding career as a movie actor for a span of thirty five years. And when it comes to Hollywood, that’s really saying something. But, what is it about this actor that makes you want to see the next round of Richard Gere movies? I don’t know about anyone else, but for me it’s “the walk.” His walk is sexy, suave, masculine and with a twist of sass and almost a little sweetness. No matter how you describe it, his walk has had me mesmerized for at least the last thirty years.

The American Gigolo (1980) Julian

There were earlier movies, but for me, Richard Gere first walked on the scene during The American Gigolo. As the name suggests, Julian was a gigolo who was very much concerned about his good looks, fashion, exercise and keeping the ladies happy, which included Lauren Hutton. Who could forget the scene where he takes out about 5 or 6 suits, lays them on the bed and coordinates each one with a tie? Back then, this type of attention to fashion was unheard of for men. This is one of the best Richard Gere movies for watching him strut his sexy stuff. This was a major treat, considering the bland and predictable plot of this movie.

An Officer and a Gentleman (1983) Zack Mayo

An Officer and Gentleman is also one of the most memorable of his movies. The movie shows Zack Mayo (Gere) going to a small coastal town trying to go through flight training school to become a Navy aviator. In the end, Zack passes the course, becomes an aviator, marries a local girl, fulfills her dream of marrying an aviator and takes her away from this boring town. Anyone who is a hopeless romantic will love this movie. Who can forget the scene in which Zack walks into the manufacturing plant in his Navy Whites and sweeps Debra Winger off of her feet? Pure Hollywood magic! As expected, the movie reviews were very positive. Once again, that sexy walk into the plant will always get you. This is by far, one of the more memorable Richard Gere movies.

Pretty Woman (1990) Edward Lewis

Richard Gere is wonderful as the very wealthy business executive who rescues a beautiful prostitute from the streets. Boy and girl (Julia Roberts) meet under unusual circumstances and fall in love. It is a twist on a common theme, but the movie works on all levels. Edward Lewis (Richard Gere) struts his stuff in perfectly tailored business suits, although now he has a head full of beautiful salt and pepper hair. The popularity of this movie brought Gere back into the limelight.

In conclusion, these are some of the more unforgettable Richard Gere movies. But did you know that John Travolta was offered the leading roles in both “The American Gigolo” and “An Officer and a Gentleman” but turned both of them down? Gives you food for thought doesn’t it.

Is a Sexy Voice More Attractive Than a Pretty Face?

I read an article in Psychology Today entitled, Is a Sexy Voice More Attractive Than a Pretty Face? My question with the statistics and the studies is not whether a sexy voice is more attractive than one’s face but how they judged their findings.

There is no doubt that women find men with a deep voice both sexy and attractive – the late great Barry White had not only an incredibly rich, warm sensual singing voice but his speaking voice was just as alluring. We swooned over this man.

However, I disagree about part of the information regarding the female voice. The article said that “men prefer women with higher-pitched voices. Women with higher-pitched voices are perceived to be younger-as well as thinner.” In all my years of teaching voice, I have not found that men prefer women with high-pitched voices. Quite the opposite. Of all the great roles in the movies where a sensual voice was warranted, the movie companies did not select Fran Drescher, Wanda Sykes or Anna Kendrick!

There is a great scene in the movie Victor/Victoria in which the lovely and sexy Lesley Ann Warren is trying to seduce James Garner. Garner has recently switched his affections from Warren to Julie Andrews. You can see by his expression that Warren’s high-pitched whiny voice is turning him off.

[Incidentally, for comedy, a high-pitched annoying voice is a bonus. Listen to Jane Curtain’s nasal whine when she is playing a comedic role; then listen to her speak in an interview. Curtain’s ‘real’ speaking voice is wonderfully resonant.]

What makes a voice attractive is its warmth. A voice which is being powered by the chest cavity has warmth. Unfortunately, most people (99%) are not using their cavity in this manner; therefore, their voices lack warmth. Add the chest cavity to the placement of voiced sound, however, and you have voices like that of Scarlett Johansson, Michelle Pfeiffer, Angelina Jolie, Felicia Rashad, and Kathleen Turner.

The question I have for the statistics which were cited in the article from Psychology Today is whether they were questioning the men about their motives: were the men judging the female voice as to whether they just wanted to hook up with her or whether they really wanted to listen to what she was saying? A high-pitched female voice may signify thinner and younger but let’s be honest about the motive. A 50-year-old man looking for a 20-year-old is not looking for intellect! He’s looking for a face without wrinkles, breasts that are firm, and legs without cellulite! If she sounds like a bimbo, oh well.

On the other hand, a deep, rich, resonant female voice sounds not only more sensual but much more confident. Whose voice would you recommend for a company’s board of directors? Kelly Ripa’s or Julia Ormond’s?

Yes, you can sound more confident. Yes, you can sound sexier; however, you must first discover your ‘real’ voice – the one that’s hiding inside your chest just waiting to be found.
