This French lady was out for a walk with her family when she saw a man digging about in a trash can and he looked like a homeless guy. This sight deeply touched her, so she went over and offered the person pizza leftover from a restaurant she has just been.
The homeless guy asked her, “What’s in the bag?“ She tried to answer in English, but ended up speaking in French. She said: ”I am sorry, but the pizza is cold." And he answered, “Thank you very much and God bless you”.
The tourist wasn’t aware who she has met on the streets of New York until two days later. Then, an employee at the hotel where her family was staying showed them a newspaper photo, with her standing next to Gere!
It turned out that the tourist lady had accidentally wandered onto the set of a new movie ’Time out of Mind’, where Richard Gere plays one of the leading roles.
For the actor and the rest of the film crew, this moment will remain as the perfect illustration of human kindness.
