Marilu Henner's Wild Encounter With A 'Stark Naked' Richard Gere

"This guy's got balls."

Veteran actress Marilu Henner dropped by HuffPost Live on Monday to chat about her unbelievable memory, her Food Network special "Marilu's Simple Good Food," and a wild screen test with Richard Gere that might make you a little jealous.

Henner acted alongside Gere in the 1978 film "Bloodbrothers," and she told host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani that Gere was "so outrageous" in the screen test that she immediately knew he'd get the job.

"We were doing a love scene, and he was stark naked," Henner remembered. "Butt naked in bed for the screen test. I thought, 'This guy's got balls'."

Watch Henner discuss her relationship with Gere above, and catch her full HuffPost Live conversation here.
