|Cindy Crawford & Richard Gere|
She answered: “Life in Upstate New York proved too slow, too boring for Cindy Crawford who grew up in the fast lane of high fashion modeling. Ms. Crawford needed more excitement. Bright Lights and Fast Company was what this young & immature lady required.
“Off-screen, Richard Gere proved to be rather dull. The American Gigolo turned out to be little more than A House Husband.”
Julia Roberts is not pretty, Cindy is. But Julia tried to make Richard see that physical beauty doesn’t matter. Really tried to break them up. I guess Cindy got tired of it and left. Julia’s nose is long and her lips are funny looking. Cindy’s gorgeous. Sorry, Julia, Richard does not like you!
They divorced in 1995 after just four years of marriage. And Cindy Crawford admits that it was the large age gap – she was 25, he was 42 – that led to the demise of her marriage to Richard Gere.
I just think your twenties, for women, is such a time when you’re starting to come into your own and feel your own power and connect to your inner strength. And it’s hard to do that, it’s hard to change in a relationship, because what one person might have signed up for, all of a sudden, you’re not that anymore,’ said the supermodel about her relationship with the Pretty Woman actor during the hour-long.
Well, I guess nothing worthwhile actually came of it. Mind you, Cindy Crawford is 17 years younger than Richard Gere, and the two tied the knot when she was only 21. So obviously something connected between them. But then as she started to come into her own, everything changed and their marriage became unmanageable for her. That’s pretty much what happened with that.
Cindy found out about Gere’s pet gerbil Mayo and said, “No thanks. Three’s a crowd.”
I think their large age gap-17 years- strained their relationship. They were at different points in their lives and wanted different things.
