Remember when Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid were a thing???
Unfortunately, it didn't work out for the pair who split in 1997 — and now their son Jack Quaid is opening up about what it was like going through the divorce of his parents at the young age of five.
The 23-year-old said on the Allegedly with Theo Von & Matthew Cole Weiss podcast earlier this week:
"It's one of those weird ages for your parents to get divorced. You're old enough to know what's going on, but young enough to be kind of naïve about it. It's a whole deal."
Of course any breakup is difficult when children are involved — and we can imagine it can be even more challenging when your family is in the spotlight:
"It's hard to ignore when you're at a grocery story and you're checking out and you look at [magazines], and there's a photo of them with a little paper rip graphic between them. It's a hard deal."
We can see that.

Now Jack is a successful actor in his own right, and looking back he has nothing but love for his famous family:
"I acknowledge fully the way that I grew up was not normal. But at the same time, it was normal in the sense that despite what my parents do, they are still a mom and a dad. It's not like they are their characters at the dinner table or anything like that."
