Happy birthday, Richard Gere! Not only can we not believe the hunky actor is 65 today, it's hard to imagine that it's been nearly 25 years since he made us swoon in "Pretty Woman."

Still dapper and debonaire, the milestone birthday finds the award-winning actor with several upcoming movies lined up. He may be a household name for earlier films like "An Officer and a Gentleman" and "First Knight," (and for being married to supermodel Cindy Crawford in the early '90s) but Gere still very much has a Hollywood presence, with recent hits in films like "Arbitrage" and "Nights in Rodanthe."
