Richard Gere is reportedly dating cookbook author and TV presenter Padma Lakshmi.
Sixty-four-year-old Gere split from his wife of 11 years, Carey Lowell, last September.
Commenting on the new relationship, a source told PageSix.com: "They have been quietly spending some time together."
The source continued: "It is all very new and recent, and happened while he has been filming in New York."
Gere is currently filming the movie Time Out of Mind in New York, where the couple are said to have met.
Gere and Lowell have a 14-year-old son together, Homer. Lakshmi has one three-year-old daughter, Krishna, with ex Adam Dell.
The 43-year-old Indian-born cookbook author was previously married to novelist Salman Rushdie for three years before divorcing in 2007, and she also dated billionaire Teddy Forstmann until his death at age 71 in 2011.
