Actress Julia Roberts believes her ‘Pretty Woman’ co-star Richard Gere’s character Edward died after the end of the film. Roberts in the 1990 film played a prostitute named Vivienne opposite Gere, who essayed a businessman called Edward. He falls in love with her and helps her get off the street.
“I think he (Edward) passed away peacefully in his sleep from a heart attack, smiling. And now she runs his business,” she said on CBS Mornings. The actors reunited almost a decade later to film 1999`s `Runaway Bride` and Roberts said the couple in that movie get a happier ending, reports aceshowbiz.com. The host asked: “(Your character) Maggie literally rides off into the sunset with Richard Gere after leaving four other men at the altar. What happens to her?” The actress then replied: “They stay together. He doesn`t die in this one. They`re going to stay together.”
Asked about her movie star character from `Notting Hill`,` who fell for a bookstore owner played by Hugh Grant, Roberts said: “She`s retired. She has six children and has maintained her waist size amazingly. Anna has also traded glamorous film sets for quiet days behind a shop counter.”“(William) runs the bookshop still and now there`s a little knitting annex next to the bookshop that (Anna) runs.”
However, `Notting Hill` filmmaker Richard Curtis recently revealed he had a different vision for the characters and wrote a short sequel in which the couple split up.
