Actor Dennis Quaid revealed news of a surprising tale of inspiration after his celebrated break-up with former wife Meg Ryan.

When the pair split in 2000, news reports were speculating that Ryan was having an affair with actor Russell Crowe. It prompted a call from a surprising source, the Daily News reported .

“[Bill Clinton] was the smartest guy I’d ever met and very kind to me,” Quaid explained. “When it was announced that Meg and I were getting a divorce, he called me from Air Force One. He was over the Atlantic right after Palestinian talks had collapsed. I don’t know how he found me, but he did. He just wanted to let me know he was thinking of me.”

The divorce was messy. But Quaid said he and Ryan “are friends” now.
