Whatever happened to Meg Ryan who was once the "Queen of Romantic Comedy"?
Meg Ryan starred in a series of romantic comedies most of which were big hits in the late 1980s and 1990s: "When Harry Met Sally", "Sleepless in Seattle" , "You Got Mail", are just a few of these. I haven`t seen any of her movies since "The Women" a few years back since I never seem to hear about her starring in anything popular. I heard that she has distanced herself from Hollywood, but does anyone know what happened to her?
I recall that due to aging, she did something with her face that didn't turn out very well. I think it's sad but it's the way Hollywood treats aging actresses who are forced to try all kinds of things to maintain their youth to stay employed. I hope she comes back, she a decent actress.
Meg Ryan (in 2010 in photo) is now a director, set to begin her first feature film in Virginia. Her old film co-actor, Tom Hanks, is her producer.
The movie is a historical piece called "Ithaca" and based on the 1942 book, "The Human Comedy." by the famous William Saroyan. The book is based on the author's own life as a boy is Fresno, California.
The story is about a 14-year-old boy who works to become the fastest, most efficient bicycle messenger in Ithaca, California, during WWII. He must deliver all the bad news to the families of soldiers missing, wounded, and dead in the war - hopefully some good news, too.
I'm writing a Hub about it all and am excited to review the film upon release, especially since I am a fan of all involved.
