Hollywood actor Richard Gere has admitted that he would love to get an Oscar nomination for his performance in the movie Arbitrage. Richard says that he is very pleased with his performance in the movie but he will not be getting his hopes up too high.
While talking to CNN, Gere explained, “It would feel great, of course. Everyone wants to feel appreciated. I like the movie, and I think Nick Jarecki, who wrote and directed it, did a really great job. I'm happy with my performance in it. I don't think any actor is ever totally delighted with what they do, but you get easier on it later.”
He added, “I've never wanted for something and then was able to make it happen. Life doesn't really work like that. I think the process of getting older is just to let it happen. While you're focused on trying to make something happen, you're missing out on so many other things around you. So I think in my own case the process of maturing is to just be more open - to feel the whole thing.”
As well as Richard Gere, Arbitrage also stars Susan Sarandon, Tim Roth and Brit Marling. Arbitrage has been receiving rave reviews and has even been nominated for a Golden Globe for Richard Gere’s performance.
