Jack Quaid, the son of American actor Dennis Quaid and actress Meg Ryan, opens up about his parents, their married life and their divorce. Jack reveals how his life has been growing up with parents in the spotlight.
Actor Dennis Quaid, who has been married three times, had married his longtime girlfriend actress Meg Ryan in 1991. The mother of Jack Quaid, Meg is the second wife of Dennis Quaid.
Jack revealed that his parents fell in love during the shooting of their second movie together, D.O.A. in 1988. Back in 1987, the couple had starred together in their first movie, Innerspace. The couple spent almost three years dating each other.
Talking about their married life, Dennis and Meg got married on the Valentines’ day, 14th February in 1991. They were married for 10 years.
It is a well-known fact that Dennis had already been married earlier with actress P.J. Soles back in 1978. But after 5 years of their marriage, Dennis got divorced from his first wife in 1983.
Likewise, after a decade of marriage, the loved couple, Dennis and Meg split in the late 1990s. Their divorce was officially finalized in July 16, 2001.
In an interview on the Allegedly with Theo Von & Matthew Cole Weiss podcast, the 24 years old ‘Vinyl’ actor, Jack Quaid shared his feelings as a child when his parents separated.
The only child of Dennis and Meg together, Jack was just 9 years old when the couple divorced.
Jack revealed that because of his parent’s celebrity status, their divorce was totally exaggerated in the media. The repeated reminders about his parent’s divorce made it more difficult for Jack as a young boy.
“It’s one of those weird ages for your parents to get divorced. You are old enough to know what’s going on, but young enough to be kind of naïve about it. It’s a whole deal”, Quaid said.
“It’s hard to ignore when you’re at a grocery store and you’re checking out and you look at magazines”, he said, “and there’s a photo of them with a little paper rip graphic between them. It’s a hard deal.”
Moreover, Quaid revealed about his life during his childhood after his parents got divorced.
He described his childhood as normal and he totally acknowledged the way he grew up. Despite his parents were divorced, they were always there for him as his mom and dad. They were true to their responsibilities as parents.
He even added that he is a huge fan of both of his parents work. He really admires their work.
Jack has followed his parent’s footsteps and is an actor now. He has starred in movies as The Hunger Games, Just Before I Go, and Ithaca. He would soon be seen in the movie Aberrant. He has also been portraying the role of Clark Morelle in the HBO’s TV show Vinyl since 2016.
Jack, who is rumored to be gay has a height of 6’ 2” and his net worth has not been estimated yet.
