Very very sad news today: Nora Ephron died last night in New York at the age of 71. She had been suffering from accute leukemia, her family has revealed. Norah Ephron was famous and succesful as a writer and director. She wrote the script for When Harry Met Sally and directed Meg and Tom Hanks in Sleepless in Seattle and You’ve Got Mail.

Meg was one of the many celebrities, including Billy Crystal, Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, who have reacted on the news of her death. Here is Meg’s statement:

“Nora was an era. We pictured ourselves inside her dreams and they became ours. All wisdom, wit and sparkle lights, what a treat she was, what a blessing. I marvel again and again, what a life… To have created a simple happiness in people, to have added to the sum of delight in the world.”

Entertainment Weekly’s Popwatch website has several of the best movie scenes from a.o. You’ve Got Mail and When Harry Meg Sally up at their site. Visit their website with this link. Here’s one example (yes, it’s been posted before, but you can never see this scene too many times!):

Meg’s bf John Mellencamp also paid tribute to Nora Ephron last night. He dedicated one of the songs that he played at his concert in Thunder Bay, Canada to her, called ‘Longest Days’.

    Norah Ephron played a huge part in Meg’s career and I’m saddened by news of her passing.

    Rest in peace Norah.
