Gere Dances With Japanese Leader

Actor RICHARD GERE swept Japanese Prime Minister JUNICHIRO KOIZUMI off his feet after agreeing to dance with the fun-loving leader earlier today (29MAR05).

The hunky star is in Japan promoting his latest movie, a re-make of the Japanese smash hit SHALL WE DANCE? and he jumped at the chance to dance with Koizumi, on the condition that he could lead.

Gere said, "I'll be the man," before the pair strutted their stuff in Koizumi's office in Tokyo.

Koizumi, labelled 'the Japanese Richard Gere' because of his resemblance to the 55-year-old star, says, "He is a great person. Such a great movie star."

Gere was equally impressed, saying, "It's a great honour for me to have the moments I've had with the prime minister. He's very generous."

The Japanese film buff is no stranger to sharing the limelight with Hollywood's finest: he once sang a duet of ELVIS PRESLEY's I WANT YOU, I NEED YOU, I LOVE YOU with TOM CRUISE, while the a-lister was promoting THE LAST SAMURAI two years ago (03).
