Hollywood star Richard Gere has split from his actress wife Carey Lowell, according to a U.S. report.

The Pretty Woman star has separated from his spouse of 11 years, former Bond girl and Law & Order regular Lowell, and is moving forward with plans for a divorce, reports New York Post gossip column Page Six.

A source tells the publication the stars, who have a 13-year-old son called Homer, have been "spending time apart for quite some time".

Gere, 64, was previously married to supermodel Cindy Crawford, while Lowell, 52, has been wed twice before.

A representative for the couple has yet to comment.
