Carey Lowell is popular as a talented actress who has carved a niche for herself through her personal efforts in the show business. Unlike many actresses born to celebrity parents, she started out small as a model in New York City. Her luck turned around for good in the year 1986 when she was awarded her first acting role in the film Dangerously Close. Not long after, she scored another acting gig as a minor character in the movie Club Paradise, wherein she played the role of a fashion model. Her years in front of the camera have seen her play many roles in both TV series and movies such as Leaving Las Vegas (1995), Fierce Creatures (1997), The Cause (2014), C Street (2016), and many others.

It was on the 11th day of February in the year 1961 that Carey was born to a geologist father called James Lowell. Her place of birth is Huntington, which is in New York, in the United States. She is an American who belongs to Native American ancestry.
The former model was raised in many countries by her parents.

Getting married as a celebrity might be easy but staying married is one aspect of marriage many stars find very difficult to maintain. Marriage, for sure, is suppose to last forever but Carey hasn’t been quite so lucky in love, as she has married and divorced three men. The actress had a four-year relationship with her first husband, John Stember. The former model and her then-fashion photographer husband tied the knot in 1984 and divorced in 1988. Their union did not produce any kid.
One year after she finalized her divorce settlement with Stember, Carey Lowell publicly vowed to love and cherish actor Griffin Dunne all the days of her life. However, her marriage to her second husband only survived for six years, as the pair officially divorced in the year 1995. The two had a daughter called Hannah Dunne.

Lowell’s third attempt at marriage was with Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-born ace actor Richard Gere. The couple decided to spend the rest of their lives together as husband and wife after the birth of their son, Homer James Jigme Gere on 6th February 2000. Their wedding, which took place in November 2002, was attended by notable movie stars as well as their families and friends.
Sadly, Lowell and Gere separated in September 2013 after spending eleven years together. Their divorce settlement was eventually finalized in October 2016 after contesting for divorce proceedings for three years in Manhattan Supreme Court.
