The actor and former Bond girl Lowell, who split in 2013 after 11 years as husband and wife, are currently battling over their assets in divorce court, but Gere seems to have found a new pretty woman in a Spanish woman named Alejandra, who bears a striking resemblance to actress Brit Marling, who played his daughter in 2012 drama Arbitrage.

The movie veteran was spotted dining with the blonde in Taormina, on Wednesday (17Jun15), shortly after receiving an award at the 61st Taormina Film Festival.

In pictures obtained by WENN, it appears the couple is more than just friends as they openly hugged and kissed over dinner. In one shot, his date tenderly cups Gere's face as she leans in for a smooch.

The 65 year old has yet to comment on his new relationship.

He was previously wed to supermodel Cindy Crawford.
