Jessica Simpson admitted to having an “emotional affair” with Johnny Knoxville while she was married to Nick Lachey
What Jessica said about it: “To me, an emotional affair was worse than a physical one. It’s funny, I know, because I had placed such an emphasis on sex by not having it before marriage.

Meg Ryan has agreed to the rumors about dating Russell Crowe during her marriage to Dennis Quaid. However, she claims that people aren’t aware of the whole story.

The hardest thing is seeing pain on someone’s face that you caused, and then have to deal with yourself,”
