HOLLYWOOD - After 23 years Julia Roberts has finally agreed to appear in the sequel to the very successful 1990 motion picture Pretty Woman.
In the 1990 film Julia starred as Vivian Ward, a Los Angeles prostitute and Richard Gere starred as Edward Lewis an ex-pet shop owner from Detroit who is now a wheeling dealing businessman.
Gere hires Roberts to accompany him to several Los Angeles Lakers games so that he can try and convince Jack Nicholson to invest in his brand new company Intersolar Nucleotronics.
In the sequel which takes place 23 years later Gere's character is now the owner of the Blue Hair Valley Senior Citizens Home in Calabasas.
Julia's character is the recreation director at the home and she really gets the elderly women stirred up as she hits on some of the husbands who are in the 70 to 90 age range.
Vivian becomes quite the businesswoman as she charges $15 for a kiss (first base), $35 for second base, $75 for third base, and $125 for a home run.
The movie also stars Cloris Leachman, Betty White, Larry King, Don Rickles, and Hugh Hefner as himself.
SIDENOTE: The film's director was going to use doubles for the intimate ménage à trois scene between Roberts, King, and Rickles but both King and Rickles responded with a "No way José!"
