Cindy Crawford shared unknown details about her first marriage in the Apple TV+ series Supermodels. From 1991 to 1995, she was married to actor and Hollywood star Richard Gere. According to the model, the 17-year age difference was ultimately the reason for their divorce.

“I think I was 22 when we met,” Crawford said. – At the beginning of a relationship, when you are a young woman, you behave like this. “Do you like baseball? I like baseball. Are you interested in Buddhism? I can do it too.” You know, you're ready to build your life around the person you're in love with."

Despite some loss of identity in the marriage, Cindy's career was radically transformed at this time, and this largely happened under the influence of Richard. She began to be perceived not just as a famous model, but as a pop culture icon. “Gere was older, I was in a different circle and I wasn’t doing the same fashion things that I used to do,” Crawford explained. “It was a time when I fell out of the fashion elite and, in a sense, took up my career.”
