Meg Ryan does not speak to her parents

Her mother said she doesn't know her grandchildren and That Meg hasn't spoken to her since early 1990, after she was confronted about Dennis Quaid's love for blow. Even after the marriage came to an end Meg still refused any contact.

I suspect her relationship with her parents was already very shitty long before she met Quaid and even before she became an actress, This was just probably the last straw,are any of you in the same situation as her?

No, I've had long periods of no communication with my parents for various reasons, but when the chips are really down I know my parents are the only ones who will always have my back

I don't know anything about Meg Ryan and less about her parents but it's her fucking business if she doesn't want to talk to them. It's not her job to provide grandchildren or to provide a place in her life for her parents.

^ Your right, without knowing both sides it's pretty hard to make a fair judgement. Too bad about her kids not knowing their grandparents, though

Hi Meg R2, tell us what really happened.

It's like her parents hardly know her...

I can;t take sides in situations like these--some people genuinely have toxic parents, and some people have emotional problems and take it out on their parents. Unless you knew the people involved well, you can't know.

I tend to stay away from people who have been alienated from their parents or children for years and want to talk about it all the time, though--to me that's a bad sign.

Yeah, I also hate, hate, hate Meg Ryan's parents.

I remember the world turned against Meg when she started fucking Russell Crowe. Knowing how awful Quaid was, who can blame her. Fun fact: I went on a realtor tour of her San Francisco house when she was selling it. It was spectacular.

Maybe Russell Crowe sat on her face and destroyed it?

A lot of actors have messed up relationships with their parents.

That's why they become actors.

I had a fallout with my father when I was 14 and it never recovered. I started talking to him again in my early 20’s? I get along with him just fine now but maybe I talk to him 2-3 times a year through text. But I consider my relationship with him good.

Didn't Meg's mom abandon the family to pursue her career and that the bad blood? What about her Dad and siblings?

This is OLD news - Meg's mother was an aspiring actress. She abandoned the family to pursue her acting career - but it never got off the ground

So this has been building for awhile, and after the Dennis Quaid situation, Meg decided to just wash her hands of her mother completely. Meg has even gone as far as warn family members, that if they tell her mother anything going on in her life, she will cut off contact with them.

Never heard about Meg cutting off her father, that is news to me.

R6 I agree. I've seen both sides of it. I've witnessed nasty and abusive people who act shocked when their targets simply start ignoring them. On the flip side I know of a couple people who dropped contact with family members for shockingly petty reasons ( spouse does not like persons family, embarrassment over poor or low income parents, etc etc).

Her son is almost 30. If he wanted to meet his grandparents, he doesn't need his mom to do it.

Surprised no one has written an unauthorized biography on Meg Ryan

Nicole Kidman stole Meg Ryan’s career when she adapted her American speaking voice and sent her off to a horrible plastic surgeon. In the Cut is the movie equivalent of a human sacrifice.

She may well be. I can't tell Meg Ryan from Melanie Griffiths, though I have seen Working Girl and I think it's the other one who had to play the love interest of BIlly Crystal (and surely that would make anyone a cunt.) But for all that I don't know about her (or that other one) I know even less about her relationship with her parents. I would never fault someone for having a poor relationship with a parent or parents without knowing the situation first-hand.

I fail to see the problem here.

I didn't really care about my parents much. Both nice enough but not great parents but I don't hold that against them. I didn't see then for years at a time. We can't be good at everything and there's no point in dwelling on the past. Its a part of you whether you like it or not, whether you focus on it or not. Meg you me we all have our past family histories.

by Anonymousreply 34November 24, 2021 4:58 PM

My siblings and I don't speak to my (remaining) parent any more. My mother died when I was 8 and my father became very abusive. Physically violent, manipulative, and he spent all the money she left behind - we were in debt throughout our whole childhood and often had no electricity. He used to threaten that he was going to kill himself and that foster people would split us up and that we'd never see each other again (taking it as far as disappearing a few days at a time to really worry us), which was actually such a shitty thing to do to children who had already lost one parent.

Anyway, I don't mean to vent/dump lol, but the point is that sometimes you don't know what's going on behind the scenes. There are MANY parents out there who really didn't think it through before they had kids and had no idea what they were in for (I think in my father's case, he thought my mother would always be around and that he wouldn't have to deal with us). Sometimes it's not even this extreme, just that they actually turned out to be incapable of being a parent (oddly something not many people even consider before they have kids). So I don't blame Meg at all.

What happened to her face is quite tragic, but I do miss her and that era of movies in her heyday when Hollywood still spent money on films for adults to see. Smart characters having intelligent conversation / banter, sweeping musical scores, nice scenery and decor. I can watch Sleepless in Seattle, French Kiss, When Harry Met Sally etc. over and over again.

Just after I turned 18 I went to my dad's house to find he had moved away. A neighbor told me he'd moved to another state. Our relationship was somewhat strained because his wife was a wretched cunt. But no big fight and yet No phone call or anything. He was just gone. I didn't see him again until 12 years later.

R42 yeah. Purely by coincidence I found out where he lived and dropped in on him one night. Shortly after that my mom died and I reached out to him then he lost his second wife and I spent the last few years caring for him as his Parkinson's progressed among other ailments. Weirdly it was the two sons he abandoned that bothered to be there for him while his stepkids all cut off contact with him after their mom died.
