The 57-year-old actress looked back at her life for a new feature in InStyle‘s 25th anniversary issue.
“In the interview for my most recent InStyle cover, in 2008, I said I had an inability to accept myself as lovable. That was harsh. I think it stemmed from starting over after my marriage ended,” Meg said. “Divorce is hard. I wasn’t easy on myself around then. I retreated. But that tough time was necessary. I became a better person after all of that. And I grew up a lot.”
After her divorce from Dennis Quaid, Meg eventually found love with John and they engaged last year, though they’re in no rush to get married.
“And today I’m happy too. Yes, I’m going to get married at some point. But for now this engagement thing is a state of grace,” she said.
