Usually it’s Richard Gere getting people all hot and bothered, but on Sunday, Oct. 19, the Time Out of Mind actor, 65, was feeling the heat himself. Posing on the red carpet at the 9th Rome Film Festival, the star gave the crowd a wave, showing off his noticeable pit stains. 

Wearing a periwinkle blue button-up shirt and charcoal dress pants, the romcom veteran didn’t appear to notice his steamy accessory while posing with his costars at the official photocall.

Later in the day, he covered up in a dapper black suit on the red carpet at the festival’s Time Out of Mind screening. The film, which hits theaters later this year, centers around a homeless man named George (Gere) trying to reconnect with his daughter Maggie (Jena Malone). 

Apart from his pit stains, the Golden Globe winner also made headlines recently when he split from his Top Chef girlfriend Padma Lakshmi. The pair dated for six months, keeping their entire relationship under the radar, but Us Weekly confirmed their breakup last week.
