Throwback Thursday: The Women NYC Premiere

Mar 20 • by admin • Comments Off#tbt, events, jack & daisy

Very sad news this week about L’Wren Scott, Mick Jagger’s longtime girlfriend, taking her own life. Decided to use some photos from the 2008 premiere of The Women in NYC for our throwback thursday #tbt feature. Both Mick Jagger and L’Wren Scott attended and Meg’s outfit was L’Wren’s design.

Sorry for not updating, there isn’t much news other than the sightings of Meg being in LA and Florida with John Mellencamp the past weeks and back home in NYC this past weekend (TY for sending those). EDITED: looks like Meg has begun the casting process for her upcoming movie! And exciting news for Meg’s 21 year old son Jack! He will be one of the actors starring in an upcoming Martin Scorsese & Mick Jagger HBO tv-show about the NYC music industry in the 70′s, to start shooting this summer.


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.

New candids and event sighting

Dec 8 • by admin • 5 Commentscandids, events, friends, gallery

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.

Event sightings and new candids!

Nov 23 • by admin • Comments Offcandids, events, friends, gallery

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.
