‘There were never any scandalous thoughts or actions back then. In the years that followed, my marriage disintegrated due to many pressures, none of which were remotely connected to Ryan,’ Hawke assured The Guardian back in 2009.
‘I know people imagine some kind of Sound Of Music type love affair, but the truth is by the time Ryan and I were falling in love, it had been a long while since I had employed her.’In 2005, The Guilty actor’s Gattaca leading lady fueled rumors that he might have had an affair with model Jen Perzow when Oprah Winfrey asked if ‘there was some betrayal of some kind.’‘There was some stuff like that at the end,’ the 51 year old Oscar nominee admitted.
