On Sunday's episode of "Oprah’s Master Class," supermodel Cindy Crawford opened up about her four-year marriage to Richard Gere, and why it ended in divorce in 1995.
Crawford married the then 42-year-old actor in 1991, when she was just 25. In the interview, she says that the couple's age difference took a toll on the marriage.
"I think a lot of what happened with Richard and I was, I was still 22 and at 22 -- as a young woman -- I was kind of still figuring out who I was and what I wanted to be and he was already 37," Crawford says in the clip above.
"I just think your twenties for women is such a time when you're starting to come into your own and feel your own power and connect to your inner strength and it's hard to do that -- it's hard to change -- in a relationship, because what one person might have signed up for, all of a sudden, you're not that anymore," she says. "I think I was more willing at 22 to be, like, 'Okay, I'll follow,' but then you start going, 'Well, I don't want to just follow -- I want to lead sometimes and I want to walk side by side sometimes.'"
