- London, Sep 16 (IANS) Actor Richard Gere has revealed that he felt hurt when his "Chicago" co-stars got an Oscar nominations for their roles in the film and he was left behind.
The 63-year-old actor admits he never paid much attention to awards news, but when his friends Catherine Zeta-Jones, Queen Latifah, Renee Zellweger and John C. Reilly, landed nominations in the run-up to the 2003 Oscars, he felt more than a little left out by the snub, reports express.co.uk.
"The only time it really bothered me was in 'Chicago'. Everyone else got nominated. I'm waiting for my name (to be read out in the nominations) and it goes right by me, like, 'Wow, what happened?' I have to admit, that got to me," Gere said on a US talk show.
