Celeb Watch: Richard Gere meets Despicable Me Minions at Universal Studios Florida


If there’s one thing about Orlando, it’s that eventually everyone comes here. Makes for plenty of great family time and that holds true for celebrity families as well. Yesterday Richard Gere met a few mischievous, yellow fans from the popular animated movie “Despicable Me.” Gere came face-to-face with the fun-loving minions after experiencing Universal Studios Florida’s newest ride, Despicable Me Minion Mayhem. Best known for films like “Pretty Woman,” “Chicago” and “Arbitrage,” Gere presented last week at the Academy Awards before heading to Universal Orlando to vacation with family and friends.
