“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!
Q: Can you shed some light on “When Harry Met Sally 2”? How did you get involved in that?
A: [Laughs] “Oh, Billy Crystal rung me up and asked me and I just thought it’d be a funny thing to do. It taught me a lesson on how brilliant Meg Ryan was. Because when you’re trying to recreate what she did it was sort of impossible. Because she was so good at it! Her timing and everything was so brilliant. She is a great comedienne and it was very difficult to emulate her.”
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!):

“Before Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston started vying for the crown, Meg Ryan held the uncontested title of America’s sweetheart. Two of her most successful movies, When Harry Met Sally and You’ve Got Mail, featured memorable New York City restaurant scenes. The eateries have changed in appearance since then, but even more than a decade later, they still attract plenty of Meg Ryan fans.(…)” SEE THE FOOTAGE AND PHOTOS
