Richard Gere and Carey Lowell have split, according to People.com.

A friend of the couple confirmed to the website that the couple has separated.

"They'll do everything possible to keep things amicable and put their child first," the source said.

A rep for Gere declined comment, People.com said.

Married for 11 years, the couple has reportedly lived apart for some time. Gere, 64, lives at the couple's property in Bedford, N.Y., while Lowell, 52, lives at their mansion in North Haven, N.Y., according to the New York Post.

Those are some pretty good choices. When I got divorced, I had to choose between living in a tent in the yard or under my desk at work.

Gere, who is a devout Buddhist, reportedly enjoys his solitude, while former model/actress Lowell enjoys being more social, the Post said. They married in 2002 after dating for about seven years. They had a son, Homer, in 2000. The couple was reportedly last seen together in June at a New York fundraiser.

Gere was previously married to Cindy Crawford. Lowell has two previous marriages: to fashion photographer John Stember and to actor-director Griffin Dunne, with whom she has a 23-year-old daughter, Hannah.
