You know that weird story about how Richard Gere likes to stuff gerbils up his ass? Well, Sylvester Stallone says that Richard thinks he started that rumor. Seems the two had a bust up on the 1974 set of “Lords of Flatbush” over fried chicken. WTF?
Sly said, “I was eating a hotdog and he climbs in with a half a chicken covered in mustard with grease nearly dripping out of the aluminum wrapper. I said, ‘That thing is going to drip all over the place.’ He said, ‘Don’t worry about it.’ I said, ‘If it gets on my pants you’re gonna know about it.’ He proceeds to bite into the chicken and a small, greasy river of mustard lands on my thigh. I elbowed him in the side of the head and basically pushed him out of the car. The director had to make a choice: one of us had to go, one of us had to stay.”
Sly said Richard was fired and still won’t forgive him and thinks he started that little roden rumor. Sly said, “He even thinks I’m the individual responsible for the gerbil rumor. Not true, but that’s the rumor.”
Please, you know they had a lovers quarrel. Sly is probably the one that lit the lighter under the gerbil’s butt so it would crawl up faster!!!
