'Proof of Life’ (2000) – Meg Ryan & Russell Crowe After Russell Crowe stuck his angry Australian nose into Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid’s personal life, there really was no proof of life left in it. The pair’s nine-year marriage came to an end officially in July 2001. In an interview around the time, the actress claimed that her husband Dennis had been unfaithful throughout most of their time together. Meg and Russell didn’t last long and the 'Sleepless in Seattle’ actress went on to break up US singer John Mellencamp’s marriage. Oh, Meg!
