Danny Moder did not tell Richard Gere to stay away from Julia Roberts, despite a wholly made-up report. Gossip Cop can correct this fabrication. We’re told it’s not true.
The manufactured story comes from Star, which blares in a ridiculous headline, “Pretty Woman Love Triangle!” In the accompanying article, a so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “Danny’s a patient man, but the thought of another man sniffing around Julia has really sent him over the edge.” The supposed insider adds, “[Moder] felt he had to say something, so he called up Richard and gave him a piece of his mind. In no uncertain terms, he told him to keep the hell away from Julia.”
The tabloid’s questionable and seemingly fake “source” goes on to purport, “Danny trusts Julia implicitly and doesn’t believe she’d cheat on him with any guy, least of all with a former costar in his 60s.” But, according to the outlet, Moder “has it in his head that Richard’s pursuing her, using their work history to worm his way into spending time together.” What’s more, “Danny’s conversation with Richard was super awkward, but he felt good to get his feelings out in the open,” concludes the magazine’s alleged tipster.
Let Gossip Cop set the record straight: The publication’s premise is not only more dramatic than many of Roberts and Gere’s movies, but it’s also far more fictional than them as well. Gere’s own rep exclusively assures us the report about Moder telling the handsome white-haired star to “stay away” from Roberts is 100 percent not true. The rep adds it’s “all BS.” Despite the magazine’s unsuccessful attempt to create a “love triangle” between the trio, the Pretty Woman co-stars are nothing more than friends, as we’ve noted numerous times.
In fact, Gossip Cop called out the tabloid just last month for wrongly asserting Roberts and Gere were developing a “secret romance” nearly 30 years after co-starring together. Much like that bogus cover story, the latest article is equally unfounded. It appears the magazine is simply trying to perpetuate its phony narrative involving Roberts and Gere.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
