Leave it to Richard Gere to not mince words on China and Tibet.
Gere, a longtime outspoken supporter of the Dalai Lama and critic of China's repressive rule of the region, called China "the largest hypocrisy in the world right now," in an interview with Indian television.
The Hollywood Reporter has the choice bits of the actor's takedown of China.
“Are we more interested in money or are we more interested in the truth?", Gere said during an interview with English-language channel NDTV 24x7.
"Eventually you have to bow to the will of the people and especially as their progress as an economy, education also gets higher; their interactions with the world and other people's functioning in the world, and the openness of self-expression. No one wants to live in hypocrisy, and China is the largest hypocrisy in the world right now. ”
