“When Nora [Ephron] brought up the issue of women faking orgasms during sex, Rob [Reiner] couldn’t believe it. ‘Well, they haven’t faked one with me,’ he said. It was Meg [Ryan’s] idea to have a scene where Sally tells Harry about this, and, like Rob, Harry can’t believe it, so she fakes one in a public place. I said, ‘Like a restaurant,’ and then Rob said it should be a loud orgasm, with everyone watching her, and then I said, ‘When it’s done, an older woman says to a waiter, ‘I’ll have what she’s having.’ And that’s how it happened. In retrospect, it may be the longest orgasm in history.(…)”

Other then several sightings of Meg, John Mellencamp and Daisy on Martha’s Vineyard, there really isn’t much news right now, so it’s time for another edition of throwback thursday #tbt! It’s a picture from a photoshoot for When Harry Met Sally from 1989. Check out the movies-section in the gallery for more pictures from this photoshoot!
I have added several more videoclips from the Taormina Film Fest into one video. Too bad in some of the clips they have an Italian voice-over translating everything because that sometime makes it hard to follow, Sorry!
This week it was exactly twenty years ago that ‘Sleepless In Seattle’ was released! Using this one for our #tbt feature. It was Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks’ second movie together. Tom and Meg’s characters only meet up in the final part of the movie, at the top of the famous Empire State Building in NYC, but this movie ended up being an absolute classic in the romantic comedy department!
There is lots of special blog posts being dedicated to the 20-year anniversary of ‘Sleepless In Seattle’ online this week. Check out The Huffington Post’s ‘Best 9 Lines’ article and The Daily Beast ‘Best movie moments’, and Flavorwire for instance!
Sorry for not updating sooner! It’s Thursday again and time for another #tbt collage. It’s two photos from one of my favorite photoshoots ever: Meg and Tom posing for Entertainment Weekly back in 1998 when You’ve Got Mail was about to be released.
Third and last post for today! The people organizing the annual Taormina Film Festival in Sicily, Italy, announced at the Film Festival in Cannes that Meg is one of the celebrities scheduled to make an appearance this year. The film fest runs from June 15th-June 22nd and one of the main focusses this year is comedy. This quote is in Italian, but i’m sure you’ll be able to understand it:
Meg Ryan, Amy Adams e Renata Livtinova saranno ospiti della 59/a edizione del TaorminaFilmFest, guidato da Mario Sesti, direttore editoriale e dalla general manager Tiziana Rocca, annunciate oggi in un incontro durante il festival di Cannes. Il TaorminaFilmFest aprirà il 15 giugno al Teatro Greco con l’anteprima di uno dei film più attesi della stagione, L’uomo d’acciaio (Man of Steel) di Zach Snyder, che uscirà nelle sale italiane il 20 giugno distribuito dalla Warner Bros. Insieme al regista saranno presenti a Taormina Amy Adams, tre volte candidata agli Oscar, che nel film interpreta la giornalista Lois Lane, e Henry Cavill, il nuovo volto di Superman/Clark Kent.
(…) Accanto alla bellezza russa, quella d’oltreoceano con una delle star più amate del cinema hollywoodiano, Meg Ryan che quest’anno a Taormina sarà protagonista di una Tao Class e riceverà il Taormina Arte Award. “Avere Meg Ryan per la prima volta al Taormina Film Fest – sottolineano Mario Sesti e Tiziana Rocca -, incontrare e premiare una delle attrici più vitali, romantiche e divertenti del cinema americano contemporaneo, straordinaria perfezionista della commedia, è per noi un grande onore e siamo sicuri che lo sarà anche per il nostro pubblico”.
Way back in 1983 Meg starred in one of the Amityville movies, ‘Amityville 3D’. They trilogy is now being released on BluRay. I won’t recommend this movie to you, because I’m not a fan of this trilogy, but it’s fun to see a YouTube clip of the movie with a 21-year old Meg Ryan in it!
Meg Ryan attended the ‘Lucky Guy’ Broadway Opening Night at The Broadhurst Theatre and the after party at Gotham Hall last night in New York City. ‘Lucky Guy’ was written by the late Nora Ephron and stars none other than Meg’s three times co-star Tom Hanks.
This is a moviestill from the first of the three Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan movies, Joe Versus The Volcano. Meg plays several characters in this one. When the movie was released in 1990 it didn’t get a lot of good reviews, but since then it has become somewhat of a cult classic! If you’ve never seen it, you should give it a try!
