Julia Roberts and Richard Gere are, reportedly, “secretly carrying a torch for each other” according to one tabloid, but it’s not true.
Julia Robert and Richard Gere have starred in two romantic movies together, Runaway Bride and Pretty Woman. It seemed that many haven’t moved on from the tandem as they are still romantically linked to each other.
Julia Roberts and Richard Gere rumors
Last year, Globe published a report claiming that Julia Roberts and Richard Gere are carrying a torch for each other in the past 30 years.
“They’re both married and would never do anything to jeopardize that,” a questionable insider told the outlet.
“but it doesn’t take away the fact that there’s a connection between them that nobody – not even their spouses – can touch. The tipster added that Robert’s longtime marriage to her husband Danny Moder was ‘rocky and she often leans on Richard for support.’”
Julia and Richard’s romantic rumors debunked
Gossip Cop said the claim was not true. The rumor-debunking site reached out to sources close to the two stars, and they said the reports were false.
Also, the romantic speculations about Julia Roberts and Richard Gere are not new. Another outlet also published a report claiming the same thing.
According to OK! Magazine in 2019, Roberts was “secretly in love” with her leading man. The outlet alleged that the co-stars’ “intense chemistry and bond” and their “powerful connection” have caused problems in their respective marriages.
“Richard’s always been the one that Julia’s turned to in tough times, and she feels like no one knows her as he does. Julia can’t help but wonder if she should’ve been with Richard all along,” a dubious source said.
“Julia knows she’d be risking it all for love, and the word is, she thinks it might be worth it… People have always thought she’s secretly in love with him,” the insider added.
The said report is also not true. Julia Roberts and Richard Gere are both happy with their respective marriage.
Julia Roberts responded to various rumors
Aside from being linked to Richard Gere, some tabloids claimed George Clooney was cheating on his wife with Julia Roberts. Apparently, the report was also not true.
The Notting Hill star has been linked to the different men she has worked with. However, the actress has been straight forward when it comes to her marriage.
Roberts loves her husband and is hurt by the rumors questioning her marital union with Danny Moder.
“He truly, to this day, to this minute, is just my favorite human,” Roberts said, referring to her husband.
“It can still hurt my feelings, because I’m so proud of my marriage,” Roberts said about the rumors.
