That’s exactly what happened to the star who was filming Stage Beauty with co-star Billy Crudup. There was instant attraction for both the Hollywood celebs, but the only problem was that Crudup was in an eight-year relationship with Mary-Louise Parker.

Even though Hawke claimed that their marriage didn’t end because he was cheating, he still ended up marrying Ryan. Hawke married Ryan in 2008 and claimed that his marriage to Uma didn’t work out because of “many pressures, none of which were remotely connected to Ryan.” It’s a little hard to believe when he had to have been sleeping around with Ryan while married to Uma. Ryan must have been really in love with Ethan because we don’t think anyone would have the guts to mess with a butt-kicking actress like Uma Thurman.
