Gere says he a 'Bad Buddhist'

Contcat Music, Aug 4, 2007

New York, USA -- Actor RICHARD GERE fears he is a bad Buddhist because he killed hoards of cockroaches when he was living in New York.

Hollywood veteran Gere is a practising Buddhist, a religion that prohibits the killing of any living thing.

But the Pretty Woman star, who is known for his humanitarian work, admits flattening the insects after his flat became infested.

He recalls, "I killed cockroaches when I lived on the Lower East Side. There were thousands of them and I didn't know what else to do about them".
