London, Sep 26: Hollywood star Richard Gere and his wife and actress Carey Lowell have separated and are apparently planning to file for divorce.
The reason behind the split is said to be different lifestyles, reports mirror.co.uk. The 64-year-old is said to crave privacy pursuing his work for ecological causes and AIDS awareness, while former Bond Girl Carey, 52, enjoys “socializing”.
A source said: “They have a place in up state New York which Richard loves as it is so quiet and it brings him a lot of solitude.
“Carey likes being elsewhere in the limelight. She is very sociable and although very much respects what Richard likes she loves being around people.”
The couple, who tied the knot in November 2002 after dating for seven years, haven’t been seen together for quite some time.
The most recent time was at the Golden Globe Awards in January.
