"[Jack's] a very strong character, a tough little guy. He's very manly and has a swagger." Meg Ryan 8/2/1993
"It dissolved before it became sport for the press. The public and the press tuned in way after. The reasons we broke up have nothing to do with another person.

Be totally under the radar and live my life." Meg Ryan 9/23/2008
