Richard Gere had lunch with an unlikely guest in Los Angeles on Friday: Robert Pattinson!

The Twilight star stepped out for a luncheon honoring Richard Gere's film Arbitrage at Osteria Mozza. The internet went crazy buzzing about the unlikely paring, something Richard told E! News he was surprised about.

"He was a perfectly nice guy, but I had no idea," Gere said at the Governors Awards. "But I was getting calls from my wife going, 'What are you doing with him? He's so cute, but what are you doing with him?'"

So Gere's wife, model-actress Carey Lowell, is a Twi-hard?!

"My wife is aware of these things," Gere laughed. "I don't know that she's a fan."

After rubbing shoulders with Richard, Rob jetted off to a business lunch at Soho House. Sources told E! it was with an executive from Warner Bros. to discuss a film.

How great would it be if Rob and Richard did a film together?
