The actor has said of his wife that has been someone who has "taught the true way." For his part, she says that with him he has "found the quiet and happy life that always" he had sought. Moreover, they are both great followers of Buddhism; So much so that the Dalai Lama gave the blessing to Silva's pregnancy. "Very happy to receive blessings for our precious treasure to arrive... I could not mention it without having told His Holiness Dalai Lama," she assured in a message from her Instagram account in September.

In addition to entrepreneurs, both are well-known activists. Gere was quoted in October with the President of the government, Pedro Sanchez, to talk about homeless people, a question that is very aware. In fact, he went to the Moncloa as a representative of Fundación RAIS (support network for socio-Labour insertion), which seeks to help and give visibility to those who are obliged to live in the street, which in Spain affects more than 31,000 people. Sanchez then pledged to push for reform in the Penal code to consider Aporofobia as aggravating, "for those who commit such cruel and inhuman acts to feel the moral reproach of society," he said.
