Dennis Quaid's ex-wife, Meg, was allegedly romantically involved with actor Russell Crowe around the time they ended their marriage. The actor was born in New Zealand but grew up in Australia. Meg fell for Crowe on the set of their movie, Proof of Life, but he was not the reason her marriage with Quaid failed. She told W Magazine back in 2000:

My marriage dissolved before it became sport for the press.

Meg detailed the experience further in The Guardian in 2003:

This thing happened, and I was all over the tabloids, and I walked through the lobby, and the place stopped. People stopped talking and stared at me. And then I got to the elevator, and instead of falling apart and going, 'Ooh,' I just started laughing. This thing that people are so afraid of all the time—public censure or disapproval—has no power if you know yourself.
