While we live in an ever-changing world, one fact remains solid and unchanged: men can be old, ugly, and downright disgusting but they can bag a hot young woman if they’ve got enough money. I’m not saying Richard Gere is any of the above – I have no issue with him either way – but I do think it’s fair to say that 65-year-old Gere’s relationship with 32-year-old Spanish socialite Alejandra Silva is likely not based on a deep and abiding true love. We’re all on the same page about that, right?
As long as there are rich dudes who give zero fucks and young, attractive women who love digging for gold, relationships like this will exist. And hey, they’re both consenting adults, so why not? The pair went public this week while on holiday together, and they both look pretty happy with their arrangement.
The actor and Spanish socialite Alejandra Silva, 32, stepped out publicly together for the first time on the red carpet at the 61st Annual Taormina Film Festival in Sicily on Wednesday, PEOPLE confirms.
After Gere, 65, was presented with an award at the festival, he and Silva extended their Italian getaway and were spotted being affectionate with each other on a beach in Taormina.
The pair then got even closer on a yacht off the coast of Acitrezza on Monday, when they were pictured sharing a kiss.
Silva is the daughter of Ignacio Silva, former financial vice president of Real Madrid football club. She’s divorced and has a kid, and Gere split from his wife of 11 years, Cary Lowell, back in 2013, though the divorce isn’t finalized just yet.
