Richard Gere and Cindy Crawford’s Advertisement

PeopleThe actor Richard Gere and his model wife Cindy Crawford spent $30,000 on a full-page advertisement in
The Times of London. It was a most strange and extraordinary proclamation, which culminated in a list of the “difficult causes” they supported: “AIDS research and treatment, Tibetan independence, cultural and tribal survival, international human rights, gay and lesbian rights, ecology, leukemia research and treatment, democracy movements, disarmament and nonviolence.” 

“We got married because we love each other and we decided to make a life together. We are heterosexual and monogamous and take our commitment to each other very seriously. There is not and never has been a prenuptial agreement of any kind. Reports of a divorce are totally false. There are no plans, nor have there ever been any plans for divorce. We remain very married. We both look forward to having a family. Marriage is hard enough without all this negative speculation. Thoughts and words are very powerful, so please be responsible, truthful and kind.”
