Richard Gere: An actor and a gentleman
Actor Richard Gere - whose latest film "Arbitrage" shows he's still at the top of his game - keeps expanding his range, to a new role: Innkeeper. (CBS News)
In fact, his life is grounded in his Buddhist faith, which he says gives him perspective. "It's a path that I trust totally," he said. "The more energy I put into it, the more results I get, sure."
And there is his family. After a brief marriage to model Cindy Crawford in the '90s, Gere married actress Carey Lowell in 2002. They have one son, Homer.
"You're an involved dad?" Braver asked.
"Oh, yeah. I was 50 when he was born, so I had kind of done myself, at that point."
"You didn't think you were going to have kids?"
"I honestly didn't think about it all that much, you know? Clearly I was waiting for the right woman - and then he just happened, and I was overjoyed."
And he has some new priorities: "I'm not going to make a movie, because I just need to make a movie. There's got to be something that I really care about. And you know, I have a basic rule, that if it's not going to be within an hour of my family, where we're shooting, I probably am not going to do it."
Luckily, there's plenty of work nearby.
