Tourist mistakes Richard Gere (SEE PHOTO) for begger, gives him cold pizza

1

A French tourist listened to her heart when she offered her pizza to a man spotted rummaging through trash in the streets of New York, not realizing it was Richard Gere making a movie.

Karine Valnais Gombeau, a 42-year-old Parisian, spotted the actor, a knit cap pulled down over his ears, sifing through rubbish as she came out of a pizzeria near Grand Central station in Manhattan, with her husband and 15-year-old son, the New York Post reported Sunday.

Without blinking, Gere, 64 asked her what was in the bag Gombeau offered him.

“I tried to tell him in English, but it came out half in French,” she told the Post.

“I said, ‘Je suis desolee [I am sorry], but the pizza is cold.’?”

“He said, ‘Thank you so much. God bless you,’? she said.

She left without knowing it was Gere making his new movie “Time Out of Mind,” until the Post ran a photo of the moment two days later.

Man Wrongfully Convicted in 1989 Brooklyn Murder is Set FREE!

Via: New Your Times

1

A timeworn phone bill from a Quality Inn in Orlando, Fla., turned out to be one of the most valuable pieces of paper Jonathan Fleming owns.

Mr. Fleming, 51, who was serving the 25th year of a sentence of 25 years to life after being found guilty of a 1989 murder in Brooklyn, was released on Tuesday after new evidence was uncovered in his case. The evidence included a receipt that established he was in Florida less than five hours before the killing.

He stood quietly, his hands clasped behind his back, as his lawyers detailed new evidence that they and the Brooklyn district attorney’s office discovered. “Had it been available at the trial, the likely outcome of the trial would have been different,” an assistant district attorney, Mark Hale, told the judge, Matthew J. D’Emic, as he explained that his office supported Mr. Fleming’s release.
