Richard Gere has been honored by the American Museum of the Moving Image.
Louis Gossett Jr., his co-star in "An Officer and a Gentleman," recalled that his combat with Gere in the 1982 film left him with "a hairline fracture in the ribs."
"But we never had a cross word," Gossett added, the New York Daily News reported in Thursday's editions. "Debra Winger took care of that."
Gere, 54, won a Golden Globe Award for his role as Billy Flynn in the 2002 film "Chicago." His other movies include "Pretty Woman" and the upcoming "Shall We Dance?"
Past "Salute" honorees include Julia Roberts, Goldie Hawn, Dustin Hoffman, Tom Hanks, Mel Gibson and Billy Crystal.
Also attending Tuesday night's event were Winona Ryder, Gere's co-star in "Autumn in New York"; Hector Elizondo; and Sharon Stone.
