Meg Ryan - "InStyle" October 2008

Meg Ryan -

Meg Ryan calls out ex-husband Dennis Quaid as a big cheat in the October 2008 issue of InStyle. Check out what she spilled to the mag:

On Dennis Quaid having affairs behind her back: “Dennis was not faithful to me for a long time, and that was very painful. I found out more about that after I was divorced. [But] I am not a victim. I was there. I was in that marriage for a really long time.”

On her divorce from Dennis: “It was also incredibly liberating. Now I was utterly free. I didn’t have to care about what people thought. I have gotten to do what I guess I secretly wanted to do. Be totally under the radar and live my life.”

On her affair with Russell Crowe in 2000: “Russell didn’t break up the marriage. I was a mess. I hurt him too at the end. I couldn’t be in another long relationship. It wasn’t the time for that. So I got out… My time as a scarlet woman was really interesting. As painful as it was, it was also incredible liberating. Now I was utterly free. I didn’t have to care about what people thought.”

On her daughter Daisy, a baby girl from China, whom she adopted three years ago: “I don’t feel like I adopted a child. I feel like I just got this unbelievable companion. Daisy is brilliant. This kid says things every day that make you just stop and stare at her.”

    I think everyone in the industry knew about Dennis’ cattin around. The sad part is that the tabloids looked the other way in that case but when Meg was having her fling with Russell Crowe it was like POW all over the media. It’s good to see that all have moved on very nicely.

    I appreciate her honesty, and the fact that she adopted as a single parent and gave an orphan the gift of love and commitment…..something other selfish, rich celebrities who ‘claim’ to want children have YET to do….

    She would be the essence of a liberated and empowered woman if she hadn’t had so much plastic surgery that she resembles the JOKER in Batman. It’s a bit pathetic….

    ..but good for her for coming clean about her marriage….they BOTH cheated, and they BOTH moved on.

    i hate it when celebrities air their dirty laundry like that
    she shouldn’t open up about her personal life so freely on a magazine interview

    Exactly #4; I wonder how her son feels about her letting the whole world know that his Dad cheated on her? No class and totally disrespectful. What does she have to gain from this?

    there’s nothing worse than having such personal bits of information known by the public eye : /

    She doesn’t look like Meg Ryan anymore. Her looks have completely changed. She does have the Joker’s mouth.

    She and Dennis have been divorced for a while. Time to let it go and not talk about it but I do agree that her affair with Crowe turned into media frenzy while Dennis was made to look like the innocent one. Hmmm!

    What a douche.
    I mean Dennis, not her

    EXACTLY NUMBERS # 4… # 5…AND # 6……How many times can she say, ” liberating”, and ” not caring what other people think” ?…..Is she still trying to convince herself of all this ?…..Looking back at archived pictures, she really has had some plastic surgery, hasn’t she?……It is hard to tell, if she has had cheek implants ( think so ), but the nose and eyes and lips and even chin is different……….I’m glad that she adopted Daisy, because it seems to have settled her down some……..The little girl is precious, and I read on another site, that she MAY adopt again to give Daisy a little sister!!!…I bet she adopts much faster than us mere mortals……She received Daisy in less than half the time of what my friends had to endure when they adopted from the same place….Money definitely talks I guess!!!!!

    she really made a mess to her face… it´s a shame, she was pretty cute in the past.

    The Joker smile, uh? jajaja a lot of people say that!

    I don’t know if to believe her – she shouldn’t talk about out of respect for her son. Dennis didn’t speak about it and it has been so many years. No one cares about her anymore all they see now is her plastic surgery mistatkes. She must have felt insecure to go get her lips done so badly.

    Kada Says:

    Most likely the pictures were photoshopped and she may or may not had plastic surgery so how come she still looks terrible.

    The aging process has not been kind to Meg.

    Seth Says:

    #4, #5, #6-

    Well, she should have done this at the time when tabloids were bashing her for her fling. Otherwise the son will end up thinking mom is bad and that he was cheated out of a good stable home because mom could not be true to his innocent daddy. I am sure the son already knows about Dennis’s drug problems (past, I think) so why not this. In any case he is going to hear these things one day.

    ouch Says:

    But Seth, it’s hard enough being a teenager without having to read in every major tabloid about how your parents cheated on each other. This should have been left a private family matter. What good did it do to air out her dirty laundry—–more publicity I guess?

  14. 14
    meg Says:

    why is she whoring out her private life now? To promote a film and get back in the spotlight? It’s as if she is trying to say it’s liberating to cheat. I think celebs should shut their mouths about their private lives and just act. This only just opens up criticism and attention on her private life, when she should have always kept attention on her career and acting, not her problems with her husband and her affairs.

    huh Says:

    I don’t understand all the talk of plastic surgery. I seriously don’t see it. I think she still looks incredibly beautiful, just aged a little. You haters are so highly critical, probably just really jealous!

    RIckles Says:

    Meg sure gets a LOT of plastic surgery
    for someone who doesn’t care what
    others think.

    Clearly you DO care what others think,
    either that or you walk around looking into
    a mirror 99% of the time.

    RIckles Says:

    and #16 huh,…… are either incredibly naive or incredibly dumb.

  19. 19
    huh Says:

    naive and dumb just cause i think she is still beautiful; beauty is in the eye of the beholder and you Rickles have a very ugly soul

    alexkziel Says:

    She needs to talk about this now because….
    Iam sick of this passive aggressive behavior on some women in Hollywood, look at her, wearing white and talking about liberation and s h i t only for publicity, give me a break!

    gnmc Says:

    Oh my God. Now she opens her yap about it all. Pathetic. How the hell did she get the cover of InStyle?? Must have some friends in high places….
    She publicly cr***** on Dennis Quaid and nothing she says will ever change that.

    The Mummy Says:

    Celebrities shouldn’t HAVE to adopt not to be thought of as selfish, #3.

    I gotta agree with #4 and #5.

    Linda Says:

    I agree # 5. Looks like she’s trying to shift blame IMO, guess she never heard the expression two wrongs don’t make a right. She has a child by Dennis for crying out loud! Is she so selfish she did’nt consider his feeling. Why rehash this and put it in the public eye now! Oh I know, his career is going better than hers so out of jealousy she’s trying to tear him own. She should marry Alec Baldwin, they’d be a good match.

    Walter Says:

    Dennis Quaid kept a house in New Orleans back in the late 90′s. I worked at blockbuster down the road, it’s a very small town, especailly the white section Uptown.

    I personally saw Dennis hit on many women and pick one up in the store. He was a hound dog. He loved to ask about the female customers.

    The rumour was he had herpes and was suedby a local for not telling one of the girls. I don’t know if that’s true, but I saw him hit on several woman over the years and leave with quite a few. This was during his marriage with Meg and long, long before anyone ever heard of Russel lCrowe.

    marilee Says:

    The writer/reporter shapes the story and Jared’s people choose that particular part to emphasize

    My take is that she was cheated on for years, then she fell in love on the set with Crowe. After years of emotional abuse, she said what the heck. At least Russell didn’t cheat on her.

    It’s horrible to be the wife of a serial cheater and stay quiet while raising the children. It’s never a good thing to discuss private matters in public, but maybe after 20 years, Meg had enough and set the record straight.

    I, for one, also knew Quaid was a major cheater. If you spoke anyone who worked with him, it wasn’t a big secret.

    Don’t forget the new remake of “The Women”, on of the funniest movies ever made back in the day is about marital infidelity. I’d guess that’s how the subject was brought up by the interviewer.

    Also, their son is much older now and probably knows., back then he was a little boy.
