Julia Roberts will join Richard Gere and other stars of the 1990 film Pretty Woman to celebrate its 25th anniversary on the Today Show this coming Tuesday, March 24th. Costars Laura San Giacomo and Hector Elizondo, as well as director Garry Marshall will also join in the celebration.
The release of Pretty Woman set Julia Roberts and her acting career soaring straight to bona fide stardom. Roberts earned her second Oscar nomination and her first Oscar for her role as hooker Vivian Ward. Vivian is hired in Pretty Woman to serve as an escort for Edward Lewis, a wealthy businessman played by Richard Gere. Ward and Lewis eventually fall in love, but not until a transformation akin to a modern day version of the one that takes place in My Fair Lady transpires.
The celebration that airs on Today this Tuesday will feature a reunion of sorts. Jason Alexander, who played the rather sleazy Philip Stuckey, and who later became famous for his role on Seinfeld, is noticeably absent, however. When the gang gets together for their interview with Matt Lauer, lots of fun and laughter is in store for everyone–both on the set and for those watching at home, too.

Julia Roberts and the rest of the cast, along with Garry Marshall, will reportedly share their favorite moments from Pretty Woman.
Julia Roberts was just 22 when she starred in Pretty Woman, and the only big credits under her acting belt at that time were Mystic Pizza and Steel Magnolias.
