A lot of homeless are in need, but get passed up on the streets every day. They never meant to end up without a place to call home, but they try to make the best of it in any way that they can. There are still some good people out there who care, though. Like one woman who found herself in the papers after trying to do a good deed…
She had been out to lunch and found herself with leftover pizza. It was cold, but it was good and she knew that if she took it home, she would end up throwing it away before it would go bad. Instead of letting it go to waste, she handed it to a homeless man who was digging in the trash for food. She apologized, saying that it had gone cold, but she wanted him to have a good meal that night.
What she didn’t realize is that she had wandered onto a movie set…and handed her cold, half-eaten pizza to Richard Gere! He was dressed for the movie, and as you can see by these pictures, legitimately looks needy. He was so touched by the gesture that he made sure the paparazzi got the real story. He wanted it to be told.
She didn’t find out until a few days later at her hotel. She was on vacation in New York from France, and the woman at her hotel showed her the front-page news! There she was, handing food to a famous actor that she hadn’t recognized. She was happy, embarrassed, and would do it again if she had the chance. Anything to help those less fortunate…in this case, it just happened to be Richard Gere!
