Did Sylvester Stallone Start The Richard Gere Gerbil Rumor? An Investigation.
Several years ago, "they" say, Richard Gere was admitted into the emergency room of a Los Angeles hospital with a foreign object lodged in his rectum. There is an infamous 'Gere stuck a hamster up his bum' urban myth. Oct 14, 4. There isn't a shred of evidence that it ever happened. According to Snopes, this ball of wax got rolling when an anonymous practical jokester faxed a phony press release throughout the Hollywood community from The Association for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, admonishing the "Days of Heaven" star that he'd have hell to pay for "abusing" said gerbil.
