Los Angeles: The cast of Pretty Woman were reunited on a TV show show, to celebrate the film's 25th anniversary.
Stars Julia Roberts, Richard Gere, Hector Elizondo and Laura San Giacomo joined director Garry Marshall for a chat with Matt Lauer of the "Today" show about how they all came together to make the classic film.
During the interview the cast revealed some secrets about the movie, including that initially Gere was not keen on the part of Edward at all.
"The joke was you could put a suit on a goat and it would work," Gere said of his character in the initial script. "So I didn't get it."
But all it took for Gere to get onboard was a meeting with Roberts, who had already signed on to play Vivian, as the two realised they had instant chemistry. "We loved each other immediately, it was a really great thing," Gere said.
Director Marshall also recalled that the film was originally titled '3,000' and focused more on drug addiction. It was only when the director came along that the film began to resemble what we now remember as 'Pretty Woman'.
