Richard Gere ‘Quietly’ Dating Padma Lakshmi

Arbitrage - UK Film Premiere - Arrivals

In the midst of Richard Gere‘s divorce from wife of 11 years, Carey Lowell, he may have a new pretty woman to lean on. Page Six broke the news that Gere is reportedly dating Padma Lakshmi, the beautiful cook book author and Top Chef host.

“It started very recently and quietly,” a source told Us Magazine. “It’s very new. I wouldn’t even go as far as calling them a couple. They are dating. It’s the first time Padma has dated anyone since Teddy [Forstmann], and it’s something she’s been approaching very, very delicately. They just getting to know each other. They’re just having fun.”

The 64-year old actor is currently filming Time Out of Mind. In the movie, he portrays a homeless man who is trying to reconnect with his daughter Maggie, played by Catching Fire‘s Jena Malone.

The Indian-born Lakshmi, 43, lives in New York with her daughter Krishna, 3. Krishna’s father is Lakshmi ex Adam Dell, a venture capitalist who’s brother is computer legend Michael Dell. Lakshmi was married to writer Salman Rushdie for three years before divorcing in 2007, and then dated billionaire Teddy Forstmann until he died in 2011 at age 71.

Gere and Lowell, 42, split in September 2013. They share son Homer, 14. Gere was also previously married for four years to supermodel Cindy Crawford before divorcing in 1995.

Good luck to the new couple! They seem like they would be very cute together.
