Hollywood actor,Richard Gere tied the knot in April with Alejandra Silva which makes it his third marriage. The 65-year-old and 35-year-old had an Indian-inspired ceremony at Gere’s ranch outside of New York.In an interview with Hello! magazine, Gere said: ‘I’m the happiest man in the universe. How could I not be?’I’m married to a beautiful woman who is smart, sensitive, committed to helping people, who’s fun, patient, who knows how to forgive, who’s a great cook – and who makes the best salads in the world!’Alejandra meditates, she’s a vegetarian, a great mother, has the touch of an angel and she’s also Spanish – the land of kings and queens, of Cervantes and Bunuel. You can’t get any better than that.’
Silva said: ‘A friend introduced us, we looked at each other and felt a very strong connection.’We couldn’t stop looking at each other all night, and since then we haven’t been apart.’
The couple met after the Hollywood star stayed at a hotel Silva’s family owns in Positano in Italy in 2014.Silva is an activist who runs a charity that aims to eradicate homelessness in Spain. Her foundation hosted a screening of Gere’s film The Dinner in 2017.
