Meg Ryan defines a generation of romantic comedies. With her iconic choppy bob, a neck that extends for miles, her quirky yet chipper head bob, and a wardrobe full of solid-colored cardigans, Ryan was Hollywood's sweetest product of the '90s. Often paired with on-screen love interest Tom Hanks, together, the pair was unstoppable. From Joe Versus the Volcano to You've Got Mail, we can only pray the two will reunite once again. But we aren't the only fans of Ryan's work.
Earlier this month, a flash mob visited the spot where Ryan showed off her "O" face in When Harry Met Sally, to recreate the scene a hundred fold. And today, Ryan turns 52 years old! To celebrate one of our favorite romcom vets, let's take a look back at some of her best on-screen scenes:
Faking an Orgasm
"I'll have what she's having!"
Love is maggots, OK guys?
Ignoring Tom Hanks
Mochachino. Decaf. Nonfat.
On Top Gun
