A few smaller news tidbits

Feb 6 • by admin • Comments Offevents, friends, general

If you follow our Twitter account, you will have seen a mention of a photo of Meg Ryan with BFF Laura Dern and Isabella Rosselini last week on Tuesday at a party. Page Six now reports on it:

“Nebraska” director Alexander Payne and Laura Dern — who starred in Payne’s first film, “Citizen Ruth,” in 1996 — had a joint birthday party at the Crosby Street Hotel last week. Spies said the pair, both born Feb. 10, celebrated with guests including Lena Dunham, Jennifer Aniston’s beau Justin Theroux, Mark Ruffalo, Matthew Broderick and Meg Ryan.(…)”

Architectual Digest has a story with photos of John Mellencamp’s South Carolina island home, which he recently had redocorated. The interior is in some ways reminiscent of Meg’s home on Martha’s Vineyard (see the Elle Decor article in the gallery). Meg mention in the online part of the article:

“But this particular house never felt right. Mellencamp’s girlfriend, actress Meg Ryan, however, thought the place had promise, and asked last year, “Why don’t you make it as beautiful as it can be?” Energized by her enthusiasm, he called New York City interior designer Monique Gibson (…).”

And last but not least a little warning: some news websites the past few days have published photos of a woman walking in Soho with a scarf covering most of her face holding a plant, claiming the woman is Meg Ryan. As frequent visitors here will easily spot: it’s not Meg Ryan in the photos but some unknown woman.

Added two new sets of candids to the gallery from earlier this week. And in case you don’t follow our Twitter updates, on Monday per The Hollywood Reporter and other sources, Meg was one of the special guests at a luncheon for the movie Nebraska:

Tastemaker luncheons were held in New York on Dec. 2 for Nebraska’s lead actor Bruce Dern (his daughter Laura Dern and her friend Meg Ryan were among those in attendance)(…)

Just a little FYI: our host fan-sites.org is now partnered with Hollywood.com so that’s why you now see a small banner at the top/bottom of all of ours host’s fansites. This will of course not change anything else.

Added a new set of candids to the gallery of Meg on her phone smiling while out in Soho on Thursday afternoon. Omg those shoes, please get rid of them!LOL! Rest of the outfit is cool though.

On that same evening Meg together with her friend Kathy Najimy attended the annual American Museum of Natural History Fall Fundraiser at the museum. And on Monday evening Meg attended the premiere of “Six By Sondheim” an HBO documentary about composer Stephen Sondheim, at the Museum of Modern Art. Good for her, but bad for us, she skipped the red carpet per usual.

ETA 11-26 On Saturday evening Meg was present at ‘Jony Ive and Marc Newson’s (RED) Auction’ at Sotheby’s where $26.2 million was raised to fight against AIDS in Africa. You can read more about it at Artdaily.

‘Web Therapy’ guest role

Nov 21 • by admin • Comments Offfriends, television

Wasn’t able to update the website this past week, so sorry!. So first: a belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Meg Ryan, who turned 51 years old on Monday November 19th!! We hope she had a lovely day with her family & friends!

The Hollywood Reporter reported on Friday that Meg will be one of the famous guest stars on Lisa Kudrow’s series ‘Web Therapy’, to be aired in 2013. The show just got picked up for a third season on US tv network Showtime. Meg and Lisa were co-stars in ‘Hanging Up'(2000).

“Starring Lisa Kudrow, Web Therapy will feature guest stars Matt LeBlanc, Meg Ryan and Jesse Tyler Ferguson. Ten half-hour episodes to premiere next year.

“We’re shooting webisodes right now, and it’s just so much fun to do,” said Kudrow. “These actors we get to play with are so inventive and nimble and funny. We’re beyond thrilled to get a third season on Showtime because it’s such a good fit.”

Web Therapy centers on a delusional and narcissistic online therapist Fiona Wallice, who treats patients in three-minute sessions.(…)”

Rolling Stone article about Tom Hanks

Nov 3 • by admin • 4 Commentsfriends, interview, magazines

Rolling Stone magazine had a long piece about Tom Hanks in it’s November 8 issue, including several new quotes from Meg about her friend and three times co-star.

Friends describing Hanks (…) ‘His friend Meg Ryan calls him “easy and fun and relaxed and smart and tough and just a pretty consistent character.”’

The article describes how Tom is an expert in dealing with ‘celebrity transactions’, dealing with how people react when they see someone famous ‘(…) Ryan remembers one of those “We were shooting something in New York” she says “and we were sitting on a bus bench, and in between takes, this bus came by and people waved at us. At the time I felt so embarrassed – like ‘Ohhhh god’ and Tom just looked at me and went ‘What’s the big deal? Just wave back! It’s a wave!’. Sometimes as a famous person you make the mistake of interpreting people’s interest in you as personal. But it’s all a goof – and he seems to have always known it.”’

The article describes how the general public seems not to really know all that much about the real Tom Hanks ‘(…) Meg Ryan agrees “I think the pleasure with Tom is that he has complications, but we’re not really gonna know what those complications are,” she says. “I think that’s smart. Movie stardom is a lot about suggestion: You have to be a blank enough canvas so people can project their feelings about what a good guy is. And there isn’t much Tom has done to dispute that. He’s wise enough to suggest that we know him – even though we also know we don’t.”’ Source

The article also has a quote from the short & sweet piece Meg wrote about Tom Hanks for Time Magazine’s 2009 ‘Time 100’.
