StorySource: AOL.ca Posted: 10/09/08 3:00PM Filed Under: Celebrity The legend has clung to Gere's name since at least the mid-80s, when he was still married to Cindy Crawford. Stories claim that the Pretty Woman star was admitted for an emergency "gerbilectomy" at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in California decades ago.
After years of speculation, the man himself finally bluntly denied the story. In a recent interview, Gere said, "I stopped reading the press a long time ago. There is an infamous ‘Gere stuck a hamster [sic] up his bum’ urban myth. I just decided not to pay attention to any of it. It’s a waste of energy."
An anonymous source helped spread the Gere gerbil myth with fake press releases supposedly issued by the Association for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, claiming that the actor had abused a gerbil. Today you can even find a MySpace page dedicated to the animal in question.
No facts surfaced when a reporter from The National Enquirer attempted to legitimise the story.
Contrary to popular belief and according to Snopes.com, "gerbil-stuffing" is not an actual sexual practice. Like legends such as that of the promiscuous rock star, the myth has been applied to a number of public figures thought to be homosexual.
So its not true.................still funny though.
Real men use porcupines! But I have a friend, who's an anesthesiologist at one of the local hospitals, who claimed this is actually true. Apparently he treated someone who did this. Story goes they insert a hollow tube into the darkside, force this poor critter down and in, remove the tube, then get off as it scatches and claws to get out while being asphixiated. Purely sick.
