Added a new set of pictures of Meg Ryan and daughter Daisy shopping for books and getting a drink in Soho NYC on Sunday afternoon.
And really, National Liar, ehh Enquirer, again the same nonsense this week? Yes she ended her realtionship with Mellencamp again several months ago, see here, but no, this was not because of him not moving to NYC (typical NE fantasy). Her marriage to Quaid fell apart mostly because of his affairs and her son finished at NYU two years ago and she has not been looking at any apartments since she already bought one 2 years ago, where she lives now with Daisy. Rant over.
Film Independent recently posted a new article about the movie Fan Girl on their website. It reports there will be a private membersonly screening of the movie at the LA Film Festival on June 15th. And there is a short interview with the director Paul Jarrett:
“Fun.” Director Paul Jarrett didn’t hesitate for a second when asked the one word that best summed up his experience on the set of his feature film debut Fan Girl, this year’s Free Member Screening during the Los Angeles Film Festival. “I got together a lot of crew I had worked with over the last ten years to work, and the cast had a really good time, some of them had gone to high school together… it was just a fun atmosphere.” (…)
“You go into it thinking ‘America’s sweetheart,’ and not recognizing that she’s such a comedic actor and such a great physical comedic actor. So not only were there simple things like head bumping against something or very small, discreet moments, but it was also getting comfortable with changing the blocking and finding funnier ways to do stuff mid-takes, and we realized that if we were both open to it, together, we’d find funnier new things to do. Her physical comedy always surprised me and astounded my every time—and makes the movie so much better.” (…) READ MORE

Tuesday, May 19, would have been the late Nora Ephron’s birthday. Although she scribed and directed many romantic classics, “You’ve Got Mail” has remained particularly relevant thanks in part to the boom in Internet dating and the modern state of book stores.
To get a better sense of how the movie came together, The Huffington Post spoke with actress Heather Burns, who played the young Shop Around The Corner employee who was also Kathleen Kelly’s (Meg Ryan) BFF, Christina. (…)
On that note, here are five things you may not have known about “You’ve Got Mail,” according to Burns:

On working with Meg Ryan:
“She’s awesome. She’s so nice, and I felt like we had really fun chemistry, and a fun time together….The dialogue was written in a really specific way but it definitely left room for a little ad-lib. She was totally up for that and I was totally up for that… We just had a super fun time with it.” (…) READ MORE
This week it was twenty years ago that the movie ‘French Kiss’ with Meg Ryan and Kevin Kline was released in theatres. The website Bustle.com had a nice feature on it this week:
On May 5th, 1995, the semi-screwball romantic comedy that is Meg Ryan’s French Kiss came crash landing into our theaters. I have always had a fondness for Meg Ryan. If Julia Roberts was the mother of all romantic comedies in the ’90s, Meg Ryan was her cute, neurotic sister. Most of her characters in the rom-com genre were mired in obsessive compulsion, usually exhibiting qualities that implied some form of anxiety or personality disorder.
French Kiss is definitely on the B-side of the ’90s rom-com canon — its gender politics are questionable, at best — but I’ll be damned if, 20 years later, it didn’t manage to charm my socks off! (…) READ MORE
