A woman in France, Karine Gombeau, was in New York on vacation when they mixed up with American actor Richard Gere for a homeless person. Without recognizing him, then he offered him a slice of pizza.
As the French tourist later said, she was with her partner and her fifteen year old son, during a walk through the city, when he saw a man grabbing in a garbage can. He looked like he was homeless. From the touched point of view, he approached and offered him a pizza a restaurant where they had been.
“He asked,” What’s in the bag? “I try to answer in English, but I have half the words words French told me.” Sorry, but the pizza is cold, “he replied.” Thank you, God bless you, “he said Gombeau recalls,
Karine did not know that he had taken to the streets of New York, or two days later, as an employee at the hotel, where his family lived, he showed them a photograph in a newspaper, with his position next to him Gere.
It turns out that the French woman accidentally walked on the shoot of the film “Time Out of Mind” in which Gere plays a leading role. But Richard Gere and the other members of the movie team of the moment certainly stay with them as the perfect representation of simple human goodness.
