Actor Richard Gere says he's the "happiest man in the universe" after marrying his third wife Alejandra Silva.

The 'Pretty Woman' star (68) tied the knot with the Spanish activist (35) in an Indian-inspired ceremony at Gere's ranch outside of New York in April.

In an interview with 'Hello!' magazine, Gere said: "I'm married to a beautiful woman who is smart, sensitive, committed to helping people, who's fun, patient, who knows how to forgive, who's a great cook - and who makes the best salads in the world.

"Alejandra meditates, she's a vegetarian, a great mother, has the touch of an angel and she's also Spanish - the land of kings and queens, of Cervantes and Bunuel. You can't get any better than that."

The couple met after the Hollywood star stayed at a hotel Ms Silva's family owns in Positano in Italy in 2014.

Ms Silva is an activist who runs a charity that is trying to eradicate homelessness in Spain.
