A woman from France, Karine Gombeau, was in New York on holiday when she mistook the American actor Richard Gere for a homeless guy. Without recognising him, she then offered him a slice of pizza.

As reported by The Good Things Guy, it turns out Gombeau had accidentally wandered onto the set of a film that Gere was starring in.

The tourist was out for a walk in the city when she saw a man digging about in a trash can. He looked like he was homeless. Touched by the sight, she went over and offered him some pizza leftover from a restaurant she’d been in.

‘He asked, “what’s in the bag?” I tried to answer him in English, but I ended up saying half the words in French. I said: “Sorry, but the pizza is cold”.’
