Richard Gere and Carey Lowell Separate: Reports

The Juice
September 26, 2013

Richard Gere is down another pretty woman: the star and Carey Lowell have called it quits.

The Golden Globe winner, 64, and his 52-year-old actress wife have separated, according to People. The couple had been one of Hollywood's longest-lasting romances, tying the knot in 2002 after dating for about seven years.

Gere's rep declined to comment on the matter.

The couple share one son, 13-year-old Homer, and plan to keep things civil for his sake. "They'll do everything possible to keep things amicable and put their child first," a source described as a family friend tells People.

Both Gere and Lowell have been through divorce before. He was famously married to Cindy Crawford from 1991 to 1995, while Lowell's previous spouses include photographer John Stember and actor-director Griffin Dunne (with whom she has an adult daughter).

While there's no official reason for the split, the New York Post reports the Gere-Lowell union ultimately fell apart because he enjoys his solitude, while she's more of a social creature. The newspaper claims that the pair have lived apart for some time — he in Bedford, New York, and she in North Haven, New York.

Just five years ago, the "Pretty Woman" actor was in a much different place, as he gushed about his bride to Parade.

"Our marriage is brilliant because of Carey," he said. "She's a fellow traveler with me on the voyage. We're partners, honest mirrors in which to see ourselves and grow and change. We help each other. It is love without ego."
