Pretty Woman has become an iconic film from the ’90s. The American romantic comedy was directed by Garry Marshall and acted as the launching pad for Julia Roberts’ career as she starred alongside seasoned actor, Richard Gere. Pretty Woman tells a very Cinderella-esque story of a Los Angeles hooker, Vivian Ward, who is hired by an arrogant, wealthy businessman, Edward Lewis. The couple spend a week together with her as his hired escort and end up falling in love. It’s been over 25 years since the film was released, but it’s still considered one of the most popular films of all time. The film received rave reviews and earned Roberts her second consecutive Golden Globe Award. Here’s a look at 10 things you probably didn’t know about Pretty Woman!
