Richard Gutierrez was born on January 21, 1984 in Beverly Hills, California, United States with his twin brother, Raymond Gutierrez to actor Eddie Gutierrez and Annabelle Rama. He has five siblings (Ruffa Gutierrez, Rocky Gutierrez, Elvis Gutierrez, Raymond Gutiérrez and Ritchie Paul Gutierrez) and two half-brothers (Tonton Gutierrez and Ramon Christopher Gutierrez).
Gutierrez began acting as a child with his twin brother. He has worked in many movies with his father and his brothers. He appeared on the GMA-7 show Click and primetime series Habang Kapiling Ka with Angelika dela Cruz. He starred in the TV fantasy series Mulawin which aired from August 2, 2004 until March 18, 2005, where he played the lead character Aguiluz. The series led to a feature-length film of the same name (Mulawin: The Movie). Since then he has played lead roles in other GMA-7 shows including Sugo, Kamandag, Codename: Asero, Zorro, Lupin, Full House and Captain Barbell. Gutierrez signed a non-exclusivity contract with Viva Artists Agency in 2008, wherein he worked in a movie Patient X and where his ex-girlfriend Anne Curtis is a talent; in 2015, he, his twin brother Raymond and sister Ruffa signed an exclusivity contract with Viva Artists Agency.
In 2012, Gutiérrez headlined GMA Network's upcoming Heavy Drama & Action Series entitled Makapiling Kang Muli. He is also an environmentalist and hosted documentary and reality series and television specials such as Anatomy of a Disaster, Full Force Nature, Pinoy Adventures, Signos: Banta ng Nagbabagong Klima, Planet Philippines, the third and fourth seasons of Survivor Philippines, Oras Na, Wildlife for Sale, Extra Challenge Extreme and Puso ng Pasko: Artista Challenge.
Gutierrez was a freelance actor following the end of his exclusive contract with GMA Network on June 26, 2013. On August 7, it was reported by the Philippine Entertainment Portal that Guiterrez had fathered a child with Sarah Lahbati. The couple welcomed a boy whom they named Zion back in April 2013. He later confirmed the news on the first episode of It Takes Gutz to Be a Gutierrez, a reality TV program that revolves around his family's life. The show began airing on June 2014.
In 2017, Richard signed a contract with ABS-CBN, and starred in the horror fantasy series La Luna Sangre and he joined the cast of Ang Probinsyano in 2020 and later starred in the upcoming drama Kahit Minsan Lang in 2021.
In 2009, Gutierrez was charged with reckless imprudence, arising from the death of his production assistant, Norman Pardo, who died in a car accident in May 2009. Gutierrez and Pardo were driving to Manila from Silang, Cavite. Gutierrez was injured, and Pardo, seated in the passenger seat, died on the spot.
In August 2012, the Court of Appeals reinstated the charge of reckless imprudence resulting in homicide. The appellate court granted the petition filed by Pardo's widow seeking the nullification of the two resolutions that had been issued by former justice secretaries Agnes Devanadera and Alberto Agra, respectively. The appellate court stated, "To the mind of this court, if indeed private respondent was not driving fast, it would have been easy for him to stop his car and thwart any untoward incident."
