Richard Gere Kills Trees, Infuriates Neighbors

Actor Richard Gere has starred in "Chicago," "Runaway Bride," and last October, in "Amelia," alongside Hilary Swank. But his latest roll? 'Tree-killer,' according to angry neighbors in Bedford, N.Y., where Gere and his wife, Carey Lowell, own a 14-acre property.

This morning, The New York Post reported that Gere felled up to 200 trees on his property, without a permit, to make room for a horse paddock (the actor is a passionate equestrian).
