Richard Gere's Sexuality (Again). This just in . . .

Alan Coren (27 June 1938 – 18 October 2007) was an English humourist, writer and satirist who was well known as a regular panellist on the BBC radio quiz The News Quiz and a team captain on BBC television's Call My Bluff. Coren was also a journalist, and for nine years was the editor of Punch magazine. (Source: Wikipedia)

According to popbitch, Radio 4's tribute to Coren included a story about meeting Michael Caine during the time when Richard Gere's sexuality was fodder for the media, and Caine was next-door neighbor to Gere and Cindy Crawford.

The following conversation is alleged to have ensued:
So," Coren asked. "You must know the answer to the big question, Michael. Is Richard Gere gay?"

"I don't know if he is actually gay," came the reply. "But he would probably help out if they were short handed."

Who cares about the truth? The stories about Gere's sexual proclivities are wonderfully entertaining!
