The Pretty Woman star wed the supermodel in 1991, but the pair split just three years later and divorced in 1995.
And Gere, who has a nine-year-old son with current wife Carey Lowell, is adamant their marriage failed because he wasn’t ready to have children with the beauty.
He says, “I married her because I didn’t want to lose her. But we didn’t have the perfect marriage – it wasn’t happening as well as either of us wanted.
“Marriage is walking the path in the same direction. I wasn’t sure I’d adjust to looking after my own child.”
