Gere Discovers Secret Hair Tonic In Bosnian Moonshine
RICHARD GERE is convinced Sarajevo's potent moonshine has put hair on his chest - literally!
The Pretty Woman star and The Hunting Party director Richard Shepard spent many nights glugging Slivovich hooch in Bosnian bars during the film shoot.
And now Gere is urging balding men to get their hands on a bottle of the plum-flavoured liquor - because it's a secret hair booster.
He says, "It is pretty serious stuff. It grew hair on my chest. I had no hair there before and now I have this fur."
And director Shepard admits he's also keen on getting a regular supply of the moonshine.
He adds, "It's a plum brandy and the town we filmed that bar in, they were making a vat of it, I'm not kidding you. It was just burning in pig dung to heat it up. So the smell was unbelievable.
"There were all these dead flies and it was gurgling. And the locals were like, 'Please have some. Welcome to our town.' I was like, 'Alright, there's only one time I'll be offered homemade Slivovich in the middle of the mountains.'
"They gave it to us and it was actually weirdly quite good."
