NEW YORK, NY (April 28, 2014) – Last week a New York tourist saw a homeless man digging through a trash bin and drinking a beer from a brown paper bag, so she gave the man her leftover pizza.

But it turns out the homeless man wasn’t actually homeless. In fact, it was Richard Gere acting in his latest movie as a vagrant!

The tourist later revealed herself to be Karine Gombeau from Paris.

Gere was being filmed by cameras positioned far away so that he could wander through Grand Central Station without people realizing a shoot was in progress.

Gombeau did not find out the “homeless” man was actually Gere until she saw herself in a newspaper two days later.
