NEW YORK — Popular actor Richard Gere went undercover as a homeless man in New York City, and a post about the experience from one of the actor’s fan pages has gone viral.

The post has more than 1 million likes and a half-million shares in just four days.  It includes a photo of Gere in disguise.

Gere, the 1999 People magazine “Sexiest Man Alive,” has spent a lot of time learning what it’s like to be homeless for his latest film “Time Out Of Mind.”
