Washington, Sept 26 (ANI): American actor Richard Gere says that he can draw parallels from the movie Nights In Rodanthe to his own life.

The movie, which features a story about second chances, reminds him of his own life and career.

People who have the kind of careers we do, certainly have made a choice to do this, CBS News quoted Gere as telling Early Show co-anchor Harry Smith.

And I know that the first ten years of my adult life, I was very focused on becoming an actor. And to the detriment of other things, I”m sure.

At the same time, because I was able to focus on that, I think I made other breakthroughs.

There is a tagline for this movie which is something about second chances, there is always a second act or a second possibility and I think that’’s even reductive about what this movie is because I think there’’s a constant series of re-awakenings and transformations that hopefully don”t change until your very last breath. But that it’’s still possible to make breakthroughs, he added.

For Gere, reuniting with co-star Diane Lane in the new love story, is more than just a walk down memory lane, as the movie’’s message is all about second chances, which he can relate to. (ANI)
