In August, Richard took food and supplies by boat to 150 people aboard the Open Arms, a rescue ship floating in international waters near the Italian island of Lampedusa after being blocked from entering ports in Italy and Malta.

Those nations wanted fellow European Union countries to take in more of the migrants who come across the sea.

Gere called for Italy to allow the migrants to dock and criticized Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini for "demonizing people".

"We have our problems with refugees coming from Honduras, Salvador, Nicaragua, Mexico… It’s very similar to what you are going through here,"

– Gere told the BBC.
