THEY may have a 34-year age gap between them, but Richard Gere, 66, and Spanish lover Alejandra Silva, 32, have plenty to help them click.

The daughter of former Real Madrid vice president, Ignacio Silva, has revealed how the pair’s mutual humanitarian work and beliefs as Buddhists brought them close.

In her first interview, confirming their relationship, the Spanish socialite told how they bonded through their ’love of helping those in need’, especially refugees and the homeless.
