Meg Ryan and other members of the You’ve Got Mail team reminisce on everything from Ephron’s unendingly sharp on-set wardrobe to her penchant for elaborate lunches.
(…) In honor of Nora, who died in 2012, and of Valentine’s Day, we caught up with the cast and crew of You’ve Got Mail, her 1998 film based on the 1940 classic The Shop Around the Corner. They shared everything, from her unendingly sharp on-set wardrobe to her penchant for elaborate lunches, to her deep faith in the kindness of New Yorkers. This is the story of Meg and Tom, Fox Books and The Shop Around the Corner, the Upper West Side, and love in the movies. But mostly, it’s a story about Nora. READ MORE

Finally had the time to get the new layout up and running. The previous one was up for over 15 months, so it was about time for a new one!. The WP theme used for this new layout was made by @ohmymorning. Added some additional coding and used a new photoshoot picture for the header.

Tina Eshleman of Richmond Magazine spoke with Meg Ryan recently about her experience directing ‘Ithaca’ this summer. Click on the link below to be forwarded to their website and read the entire interview. It’s worth it! The interview comes in three parts, so be sure to click on pages  and  too. Here are some quotes from the interview, about working with Tom Hanks, her son Jack and Sam Shepard.
RM: I read that Tom Hanks plays a cameo role in the movie. What was it like working with him again?
Ryan: I’m just so overwhelmed by his generosity and his friendship. He didn’t have to do what he did. This is how gracious he is — he thanks everyone else for letting him come to be there. I mean, he is just such a gift to everybody, and it was wonderful to be around him. He’s worthy of all of our admiration and our love.
RM: Had you worked with Jack, your son, before?
Ryan: No, but what was amazing is that when I was there with him on the set, I thought about how this is just one more step from what it’s been like to be around him his whole life. I’d be at my house and out of one door would come one of his friends dressed as some strange cereal box character and out of another door somebody else comes out. and they’re shooting a little video about the invasion of the world by the Trix rabbit! Jack is so odd and great and creative. His whole life, he’s been writing and, in a way, directing and acting and having so much fun. He came to our set right after doing an HBO series that Martin Scorsese is doing with Mick Jagger. So, Jack came to me after he had just been on a very prestigious and cool set. Here, he’d just worked with Martin Scorsese and we got him next. It was so cool to see him have that much fun. The thing he’s doing for HBO is a period piece in the ’70s [about the rock ’n’ roll industry], so he had to come down and shave off his lamb chops and an enormous amount of hair so that he could become a period soldier in 1942.
RM: And how about Sam Shepard [who plays Willie Grogan, a philosophical telegrapher]? Have you ever worked with him before?
Ryan: No, and he is everything you’d hope Sam Shepard would be. He is such a refined and powerful actor. He’s an intelligent man but he’s so funny and he’s really fun, and when you sit next to him between takes, he’s talking about the play he’s writing. He’s to be admired for so many things and rightfully so. He’s one of our great American playwrights. And he’s a blast to talk to. He’s deep and funny and kind. MORE
