Richard Gere and Julia Roberts
A number of years later, in the romantic comedy Runaway Bride, Julia Roberts and Richard Gere played opposite each other for the second time. Ike Graham, played by Gere, is a reporter who writes about Maggie Carpenter’s chequered past and eventually falls in love with her. Julia Roberts plays the infamous Maggie Carpenter, who is known for walking away from three grooms at the altar.
Richard Gere plays Ike Graham. In 1999, they had an age gap of 18 years, which was significant but perhaps not as striking as it would have been if Julia Roberts had still been in her 20s. Richard Gere was 49 years old at the time, and she was 31.
