This year, Pretty Woman celebrated its 25th anniversary. The stars and director Garry Marshall reunited on NBC's Today with Matt Lauer to take us down memory lane. Personally, I think Gere is hotter as a silver daddy than he was when he had dark hair.
A 1971 thriller was also a box office hit and also had a prostitute as its lead female character. But this story is grittier and it's a thriller. The prostitute, who has trust issues, must learn to trust a cop. Her life is in danger. What do Julia Roberts and Jane Fonda have in common artistically? Both have several Oscar nominations to their credits, both are Best Actress Oscar winners (Roberts won for the 2000 drama, Erin Brockovich) and both got a nomination for playing a hooker who wore thigh boots. Jane Fonda won a Best Actress Oscar for playing the tough New York City hooker in Klute.
