Meg Ryan’s new movie, The Women, is in theaters now, and the 46-year-old mom of two spoke with InStyle magazine about her kids – and also, for the first time, her affair with Russell Crowe and the problems she was having with then-husband Dennis Quaid.
Having not been in the spotlight for a few years, Meg says she’s focusing on her two children, Jack Henry, 16, and Daisy True, 3 1/2, whom she adopted from China in 2006.
On Daisy: “As mysterious and magical as it is to have a baby you gave birth to, I have that exact same thing with Daisy,” Ryan says. “I feel like we made some agreement, long ago and far away, to meet in the way we did.”

About her 10-year marriage to Dennis Quaid: “Dennis was not faithful to me for a long time, and that was very painful,” she says, adding, “I am not a victim. I was there. I was in that marriage for a really long time.”
On being involved with Russell at the end of her marriage: “Russell didn’t break up the marriage,” she says. “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.”
Whatever happened back then, everyone has clearly moved on – Meg has a new daughter and is raising her son; Dennis Quaid is married to Kimberly Buffington and they have 10-month-old twins Thomas and Zoe; and Russell Crowe is now married to Danielle Spencer and they have two sons, Charlie, 4 1/2, and Tennyson, 2.
