Yes, we know he was technically born in New Zealand, but we claim him.

Actor Russell Crowe dated rom-com queen Meg Ryan after they met on the set of proof of life in 2001.

Ryan had been married to Dennis Quaid since 1991 and the pair were Hollywood’s golden couple, so it came as a shock to fans when they announced their split in June 2000.

By 2001, they were officially divorced.

Around the time of her divorce from Quaid, Ryan was linked to Crowe after photos of them on set looked cozy proof of life circulated in the tabloids.

The perceived leaks seemed to change Hollywood’s view of Ryan as the squeaky clean girl next to the “Scarlet Woman” — her words — and coincidentally her career took a hit.

But while the actress takes full responsibility for the failure of her marriage to Quaid, she said Crowe was wrongly implicated in their divorce.

“I think he took a big hit. But Russell didn’t call off the marriage,” she said InStyle. “He was definitely there at the end, but it wasn’t his fault. I was a mess I ended up hurting him too. I couldn’t be in another long relationship, there wasn’t time for that. So I got out.”

While Namor is already a fan favorite after his role in Black Panther: Wakanda ForeverMarvel Studios producer Nate Moore recently revealed that the character won’t be able to get his own movie due to rights issues with Universal Pictures. However, Namor may have supporting roles in Marvel Cinematic Universe films as seen with Wakanda forever.

Wakanda forever Ryan Coogler directed the film from a screenplay he co-wrote with Joe Robert Cole. Other starring roles are Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Martin Freeman and Angela Bassett.

In Heroic Hollywood’s review of the film Ryden Scarnato wrote “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever takes after the events of Avengers: Endgame, with T’Challa’s death becoming permanent due to Boseman’s death in real life and the story that now follows the world of Wakanda dealing with that grief. Although the film is an ensemble, it ultimately rests on the shoulders of Letitia Wright’s Shuri and Angela Bassett’s Queen Ramonda.”

“Everyone here is at their best when it comes to performing, and you can’t help but think that’s because of how intertwined the film is with real life. With Wright and Bassett at the center, the two are the strongest of the group, with incredibly personal moments that are among the most heartfelt we’ve seen in the MCU. Shuri’s larger role in the film in particular also works for those who might have reservations.”
