According to reports, the two first started seeing each other last spring. At that time Gere was going through a divorce from his wife of  11 years, Carey Lowell.

However, neither star ever acknowledged the relationship, nor were they photographed together in public.

Gere, 65, separated from wife Lowell — with whom he has a teenage son, Homer. He was also married to supermodel Cindy Crawford from 1991 to 1995.
