1. The couple allegedly first met at a barbecue at the photographer Herb Ritts' house in 1987. 

2. Actor Gere married supermodel Crawford in 1991 at the Little Church of the West in Las Vegas.

3. Sadly, the marriage only lasted for four years until 1st December 1995.

4. Crawford later came out and said that it was the age gap (he was 25 and she was 42) that contributed to the dissolution of her marriage; she told Vogue; "I think a lot of what happened with Richard and I was that I was still 22 and at 22 - as a young woman - I was kind of still figuring out who I was and what I wanted to be and he was already 37. So in some ways, he knew that I was still growing and changing. I just didn't want to hear it from him because at 22 you think you know everything. You think you're already formed. And then you realise, 10 years later, that they were totally right.". 

5. In 1993, they were named by People magazine as the sexiest couple of the year.

Where are they now?
