When we’re talking romance, nothing beats a good comedy-romantic movie to watch it about. And for the 1990’s movie fans, you’ve most probably heard of “Pretty Woman” starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. Well, get to see them together again in their movie’s 25th anniversary!
On Wednesday, March 18, NBC’s Today show announced of their exclusive interview of the cast of 1990 movie “Pretty Woman” coming up on Tuesday, March 24. This interview also serves as a reunion for the movie’s cast as it celebrates its 25th anniversary since its release onscreen.
In a video clip and photos of the interview shown on Today’s site, we get to see the movie’s stars Julia Roberts and Richard Gere looking back at the movie’s moments with Matt Lauer and their two co-stars Hector Elizondo and Laura San Giacomo. Also with them during the interview was the movie’s director Garry Marshall.
“Pretty Woman” tells the story of Edward Lewis, a wealthy businessman played by Richard Gere, who meets a prostitute named Vivian Ward (Roberts) and hires her to be his escort for some social engagements he’ll be attending in line of his business. With the help and tutoring of initially reluctant hotel manager Barney Thompson, played by Elizondo, and encouragement from her co-worker and friend Kit de Luca (San Giacomo), Ward was able to play the perfect lady beside Lewis. Then slowly but surely, they fall in love with each other.
The movie became a big hit back in 1990 and has held on to its spot as the 4th highest-grossing movie in its genre until now. Roberts was then nominated for an Oscar as a Lead Actress and a Golden Globe as an Actress in a Comedy/Musical Motion Picture. Elizondo was also nominated by the Golden Globes as a Supporting Actor.
The reunion and interview of the cast of “Pretty Woman”, in tribute to its 25th anniversary, will be shown in the Today show next Tuesday, March 24.
