Talk about a rush to the altar! Cindy and Richard were in such a hurry to wed that they didn't have time to purchase rings for their wedding ceremony. The couple flew to Vegas with a few friends during a break from filming on Richard's "Mr. Jones," which was shooting in Los Angeles, and exchanged wedding bands made out of twisted chewing gum wrappers when they tied the knot at the Little Church of The West Wedding Chapel on Dec. 12, 1991. "It was the best decision I ever made," Gere said. But the couple separated just 11 days before their three-year anniversary in 1994.
