At the beginning of April, in secret and without photographers, Richard Gere’s wedding was celebrated with the Spanish businesswoman Alejandra Silva. Neither the distance, nor the difference of 33 years that exists between them, was an impediment to a relationship for which some media have come to baptize Silva as the Spanish Pretty Woman. The nickname was an easy resource that does not exactly respond to the situation of the spouses, who this weekend are celebrating a family party at their home in New York to celebrate their marriage.
Neither Richard Gere is currently an actor on the crest of the wave to compare him with the all-powerful businessman Richard Lewis, whom he gave life in the film, nor Alejandra Silva has anything to do with Vivian Ward, of whom Lewis becomes in love pygmalion.
The actor has found in Alejandra Silva, according to his own words, a calm and happy life. “The one I always looked for,” he assured the press. The one who is already his wife found calm and love in him at a “moment when she was very lost.” Just after going through a sour divorce from billionaire businessman Govind Friedland, whose fortune is estimated between 670 and 770 million euros, according to sources, and with whom he has a seven-year-old son, Albert.
Now the couple is opening a new stage as a family in New York, the city where Gere usually lives and where Silva has just moved his residence and educated his son, after selling his 341-meter chalet for almost 1.2 million euros squares in Madrid’s Fuente del Berro neighborhood, where the actor settled on his increasingly frequent visits to Spain. Where he enjoyed walking around Madrid, the tranquility of the countryside when they visited the Segovian farm of Alejandra’s father and the many solidarity projects in which the actor and his girlfriend participated.
Richard Gere, who is now 68 years old, stood out in the cinema of the 80s and 90s with films like American Gigolo, Officer and Gentleman, Days of Heaven and above all, Pretty Woman. In fact, the actor has always taken his fame with humor apologizing to his fans for the time they have wasted watching him on screen. He was the highest paid, the sexiest, the heartthrob that audiences of all ages liked and that still today each of his increasingly rare releases comes accompanied by praise for his work. A career, like a life, with which he did not give rise to scandal. To paraphrase his words, a calm and happy journey. Now, his third marriage, he will not change his habits.
“Fame is worth nothing. There is nothing good in it. The good thing is what you can do with it,” he confessed to EL PAÍS a few years ago. It is his vital philosophy, the one that has led him to amass a fortune that was estimated at some 207 million euros, real estate like a house in the Hamptons – that paradise by the sea in the eastern United States where high society and intelligentsia congregate. New Yorker in search of sun when looking for a sun that does not burn – or a boutique hotel, which he preferred to call a green residence and where he embarked with his former wife, model and Bond girl, Carey Lowell. The same one with whom his divorce, which ended in 2016, meant that almost half of the amount in which his assets had been encrypted flew.
But as the interpreter has assured, for Hommer, his only son, he gives everything. “It is a mirror. Like any other parent, in my child I see the good, the bad, the frustrations, the joys, the anger, the blessings. In him I can always see myself. And he can see me. I am never as vulnerable as a his side, “he said about the young man who is now 18 years old.
With this strong paternal feeling, the new couple formed by the actor and Alejandra Silva (35 years old) does not rule out having more offspring in the future; in fact they were seen recently leaving a fertility clinic in New York. Age difference has never been a problem for Gere, who first married top model Cindy Crawford when he was 42 and she was 25; and later he married Carey Lowell, whom he had been 11 years old.
The interpreter has said it many times: he does not see himself as rich. He lived a childhood in which money was not part of the conversation. He never had enough but he didn’t lack either and that’s how he continues to behave. “I never made blockbusters of one hundred million dollars. Only films that I feel are worthwhile. I have not changed in that,” he declared in this new phase of his career. Supportive actor, friend of the Dalai Lama, daily meditation practitioner before it became fashionable, his humanitarian work has progressed over the last few years and has also been the link that united him with his current partner. Beyond defending the freedom of Tibet, a cause that made him persona non grata in China and damaged his professional career, the foundation that bears his name, and in which Alejandra Silva actively collaborates, has expanded its humanitarian work to the struggle Against AIDS. The actor has also become an agent of change in the homeless crisis, advocating for fair housing and a social impulse that serves to support what they have lost the most basic: a place to live. Hence his work with the RAIS Foundation, focused on the homeless, who is also sponsored by his current wife.
Gere, who declares himself a Buddhist, has already said that it was karma that brought him and Alejandra together. “Do you know what shunya is? Empty in Sanskrit. And that’s what I like to be. Someone empty of myself and that I can be anyone,” he said a year ago. This is also the name of the intermediation company that Alejandra Silva created in August 2015, Shunyata SL (what does not exist, what is substantial), a basic Buddhist term that united a businesswoman and an international actor and whose story seems like an argument of one of the many romantic films that Richard Gere has starred in throughout his career.
