‘Meg and I never really break up’

Sep 27, 2014 • by admin • Comments Offgeneral, interview, meg ryan

Looks like the comment he made to Howard Stern on Wednesday, see previous post, isn’t the only thing John Mellencamp had to say about Meg. Here are three more quotes, starting with a quote from an [article] in the new issue of Billboard Magazine:

Meg Ryan shot the photo of you on the cover of Plain Spoken. Is that weird for you now that you guys have broken up?

I don’t really talk about that stuff. I don’t know — Meg and I never really break up. We were in Greece visiting my son when she took that photo on an iPhone.

And here is what he had to say after an ill-informed (no one made any ‘announcement’!) and nosy Matt Lauer decided to ask him about Meg on the Today Show on Friday morning. Go [HERE], wait for the commercial to end, then scroll to 02m:02s for the interview:

“Meg’s an angel. She’s an angel sent to me, and I’m very happy. And, you know, nothing’s over ’til it’s over.”

To close it off, [HERE] is a report about an interview he had this week with a reporter for the Associated Press.

John Mellencamp talks about Meg

Sep 24, 2014 • by admin • Comments Offgeneral, interview, meg ryan

For the first time since the end of their relationship in June, John Mellencamp talked about Meg Ryan in an interview with Howard Stern this morning. You can listen to his reply for yourself [VIA THIS LINK], just scroll to 43m:21s and skip the rest. Typical Stern.

“Meg is an angel. You know, she was an angel that was sent to me at the right time. And we tried to have a relationship long distance for three years, and we’ll see what happens.”

Also, it turns out the photo that was used on the front cover of John Mellencamp’s new album, which was released yesterday, was in fact taken by Meg Ryan. Thanks for the heads-up Lindsey!

Several recent Meg mentions

Sep 15, 2014 • by admin • Comments Offgeneral, gossip, Ithaca

While Meg Ryan has been filming scenes for the indie movie ‘Fan Girl’ the past weeks, she has been mentioned in several stories about ‘Ithaca’ (which wrapped August 21st). First a story from Newsadvance.com about an extra in the movie:

Olivia Dodson, 40, has always been an artsy person. Last month, the Amherst resident appeared as an extra in Meg Ryan’s directorial debut, “Ithaca,” filmed in Petersburg. It was Dodson’s first time as an extra in any film. “The best part of Ithaca was … you have all these legends from Hollywood that are so hands-on and so professional. You hear about people from movies having tantrums and having demands and it just wasn’t like that,” Dodson said.(…)

The following Thursday, Dodson arrived to the set and was able to get an up-close look at a woman who ordinarily can be seen on the silver screen. Dodson’s impression of Ryan differed from criticism in tabloids. “When I saw her and she was an inch from me she looked like a perfect little pixie,” Dodson said. “She was 52 and looked 32.” The actress also displayed a conscientious attitude toward her cast and was careful not to hurt anyone’s feelings; after a shoot, Ryan would yell “Fantastic!” “Incredible!” Dodson said. “If she had to say something about someone, she was very nice to everyone.” (…) READ MORE HERE

Also, there has been an auction of several items used for filming the movie Ithaca this past Sunday, with part of the money being donated to the Legacy Media Institute’s upcoming International Film Festival in Petersburg. You can read more about it at their Petersburg PickersFacebook page and their website.

And today the Times-Dispatch has a Meg-mention about her promoting Petersburg Virginia as a possible place to film to Disney.

Filming scenes for ‘Fan Girl’ in Westbury

Sep 6, 2014 • by admin • Comments OffFan girl, movies

Meg Ryan has been shooting some scenes for an indie movie called ‘Fan Girl’ on Long Island this week. The Westbury times has an article on it with two photos [HERE]:

Post Avenue turned into a movie set last night as film crews came to The Space to shoot Fangirl, an upcoming movie starring Meg Ryan.

Residents and local shop owners stood nearby to watch as Ryan, sporting her signature pixie cut, stood in front of the Space talking to costars. Someone called “quiet on set,” and cameras rolled as Ryan walked out of the theater talking a male costar. The two then got into a limo parked in front of the theater. Crews will continue to shoot Friday afternoon on Post Avenue.

And [here] is more general information on the project. Not sure what part Meg has in it, next to actresses Kiernan Shipka, Kara Hayward and singer Alex Gaskarth.

Film crews have one again descended on Port Washington.

On Wednesday, Irma Avenue outside Coffeed, the popular coffee shop, was abuzz with lights and cameras. The crew was filming “Fangirl,” according to a source familiar with the independent project.

The young-adult novel, “Fangirl,” by Rainbow Rowell, tells the tale of twin teenage sisters about to enter college. One writes fan fiction about the hearth-throb Simon Snow, the other has moved on. To add to the drama, the girls are coping with a dad who suffers from manic spells, and a mom who has resurfaced after walking away from the family 10 years earlier. (…)
