Their Connection Was Clear Right Away
In 2014, Gere saw Silva once again. A mutual friend brought the two together, and the connection was clear as day. Silva told Hello! Magazine that they “couldn’t stop looking at each other” the first night they reconnected.
By this time, Silva was the manager of an Italian hotel. She noted in an interview that Gere loves being with someone in another industry. Silva said, “Above all, it helped I wasn’t an actress or a model. I never had any interest in that.”
