Meg Ryan - "InStyle" October 2008
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.”
