Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber have been together forever, but back in the early '90s Cindy was dating (and eventually married!) Richard Gere. And she's opening up about their relationship—and how she molded herself to fit his needs—in the new docuseries The Super Models.

Cindy says, via ET, that "In the beginning of a relationship, when you're a young woman, you’re like, 'You like baseball? I like baseball. You’re really into Tibetan Buddhism? I might be into that. I’ll try that. You’re willing to kind of mold yourself around whoever you are in love with."

She also explained that, while with Richard, she spent less time with "the fashion elite" and more time with his peers. "He was older, so I just was like in a different circle and not doing some of those same fashiony things anymore."

Of course, there was no moment more ~fashion~ than Cindy's red dress at the 1991 Oscars, and, as she put it, "If I'm going to go to the Oscars, I better be a freaking supermodel. When I showed up in that red dress, I think it was a little like, 'Wow, fashion is back at the Oscars.'"

Cindy previously told the WTF podcast that when it comes to her and Richard's current relationship, "We’re friendly, but I think it’s almost like he’s gone back to being, like, ‘Richard Gere’ again, like a stranger, because we don’t really see each other that much. I think part of the problem in our relationship was that we were a lot of other things, but I don’t know if we were ever friends—like peers, because I was young, and he was Richard Gere.”
