The aftermath of adultery isn’t pretty for anyone involved, but when it’s a celebrity who’s supposedly done the dirty deed-ing, things can get especially messy. From Oscar-winners to TV stars, and singers to sports icons, these celebs paid the price for their romantic slip-ups with their Hollywood careers.
Meg Ryan was one of America’s most in-demand sweethearts of the silver screen starring in rom-coms like When Harry Met Sally and You’ve Got Mail. But her girl-next-door image was completely sullied when rumors emerged about a tryst with her Proof of Life co-star Russell Crowe which was publicly perceived as the reason she divorced her husband of nine years, Dennis Quaid. She denied the speculation, telling Harper’s Bazaar,
“My marriage was breaking up long before it became a matter of public discussion.”
Though there may be plenty of blame to go around, it was Ryan’s career that really hit the skids. Proof of Life bombed at the box office, and the Golden Globe-nominated actress has yet to wield the marquee status that made her a household name in the ’90s.
