"It's very difficult to be a career person and have a relationship. I didn't succeed at doing it at all. It's incredibly hard," Ryan said. Playing the lead in romantic movies like "You?ve Got Mail" and "When Harry Met Sally, " Ryan?s love life has not been as picture perfect. Her relationship with Russell Crowe ended when news of the affair surfaced. She empowered herself by leaving the relationship and focusing on herself instead.
"I empowered myself by not staying in the thing with Russell. I felt it was going to be repeating some similar patterns that I'd just gotten out of and it was a drag because I was crazy about him," Ryan said.
Despite the relationship bumps, Ryan is still a firm believe in romance and turning 40 hasn?t changed her perspective. "I just don't feel like it's seminal or major in any way. I like my life right now, I really like it. Whatever it's taken to get here, I appreciate," she said. "We can?t have it all."
Watch Meg in her latest movie, "The Women."
