Esteemed actor Richard Gere and Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi are dating in secret says a source who clearly doesn't care that the couple is trying to keep it on the down-low.
"They have been quietly spending time together," says the insider. "It is all very new and recent, and happened while he has been filming in New York."
At 64, Gere still has a reputation as something of a ladies man. The Pretty Woman star was married to Cindy Crawford for four years before Gere's alleged infidelity led to their divorce. Gere and Carey Lowell separated in 2013 and are still working on finalizing their divorce.
Former model Lakshmi married Salman Rushdie in 2004, but the couple went their separate ways just three years later.
