Washington, Sept 26 : American actor Richard Gere says that he can draw parallels from the movie "Nights In Rodanthe" to his own life.
The movie, which features a story about second chances, reminds him of his own life and career.
"People who have the kind of careers we do, certainly have made a choice to do this," CBS News quoted Gere as telling Early Show co-anchor Harry Smith.
"And I know that the first ten years of my adult life, I was very focused on becoming an actor. And to the detriment of other things, I'm sure.
"At the same time, because I was able to focus on that, I think I made other breakthroughs.
"There is a tagline for this movie which is something about second chances, there is always a second act or a second possibility and I think that's even reductive about what this movie is because I think there's a constant series of re-awakenings and transformations that hopefully don't change until your very last breath. But that it's still possible to make breakthroughs," he added.
For Gere, reuniting with co-star Diane Lane in the new love story, is more than just a walk down memory lane, as the movie's message is all about second chances, which he can relate to.
