Meg Ryan has opened up about her affair with Russell Crowe, declaring the Aussie actor is no home wrecker.

As Russell prepares for the birth of his second child with wife Danielle Spencer, Meg Ryan has given new details on her six- month affair with him while she was still married to actor Dennis Quaid.

She claims her 10-year marriage was already over when she had her affair with the Oscar winner.

She went on to say that Russell had a lot of grace about not talking about things that he knew were going on in her marriage and for that she "will be very grateful to him for a long time".

The pair met on the set of their 2000 film 'Proof of Life' and the scandal over their affair has been blamed for the film being a box office flop.

Denis Quaid later thanked the Aussie actor for having the affair with his wife, claiming he did them a big favour by forcing them to face up to the fact that they were clinging on to a dead relationship.
