"There are more important conversations than how women look and how they are ageing" - Porter Magazine
Ryan at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, Georges Biard
Today we celebrate Meg Ryan and all of her 56 years! The American actress and director, born Margaret Mary Emily Anne Hyra, adopted her maternal grandmother’s maiden name ‘Ryan’ as her screen name whilst earning a little extra cash acting in college…
Here are our top 3 reason why we love the bubbly blonde who made her way into our hearts by owning the rom-com scene:
- She "can't imagine being a hater." Being kind is underrated and we should all take a leaf out of Ryan’s book.
- Meg plays roles of women who are finding their voice, giving women in society a role model to help find out their true self. From ‘When Harry met Sally…’ to ‘Sleepless in Seattle’ and ‘You've Got Mail,’ Ryan has received a number of well-deserved awards and nominations for her work. Hats off to you Meg.
- She can fake an orgasm like no other. One of the most famous scenes in film, in When Harry Met Sally, which took almost a whole day to get right- we take our hat off to Meg for getting this spot on!
Fun Fact: During college, Ryan acted in television commercials to earn extra money- she even appeared in a Burger King ad!
You are a feminist hero Meg.
