LIBBY INTERVIEWS...
MEG RYAN

<<PREVIOUS

Meg

It was a lot of fun working with everyone.

Libby

I'm sure at the very least it was loud.

I am very good at reading people Meg and I sense there is something beneath all that perk, that there is a darker more introspective side.

Greg Kinnear your costar in You've Got Mail (which I thought I saw but I'd accidentally watched Sleepless in Seattle twice) said about you "There is such complexity beneath Meg's surface. She is a far more intricately wired personality than you might think" Do you feel that's accurate?

Meg

I'm definitely not the perky, Suzy Sunshine that the public sees all the time. I think it's a fair assessment. I think we all have a dark side.

Libby

How do you handle your psychosis?

Meg

I wouldn't call it psychosis I just have periods like everyone else where things overwhelm me.

Libby

And what do you do when you plunge into the dark side?

Meg

I wouldn't call it plunging but I like to meditate or chant. I just feel I need something to make my mind shut up.

Libby

Oh, that's interesting, something like "redrum, redrum, redrum'...?

Meg

No! Nothing like that at all, you see I took up yoga because running was too hard on my hips so I find that I can....

Libby

You're breaking my heart here. I'm looking at America's Sweetheart, all squints and squirts and giggles and now you've got the same problem as my Aunt Hannah? She's ninety!

My God at the rate you're going you're gonna end up like Baby Jane Hudson!

Meg

What?

Libby

Now your breakup with Randy--who I loved by the way in all the Vacation movies--not in a romantic way of course, but in a buffoon way. Was he frightened that you were going to harm him?

Meg

First of all his name is Dennis and no, I would not harm anyone.

Libby

O.K. let's not get excited here and I would appreciate if you would put down that pen. Just a little point of interest here Meg, anger is not cute.

Now ,Russell Crowe.

Meg

I told you I don't want to talk about that.

Libby

Are you hoping he'll put the twinkle back in your eye, the calcium back in your hips the air back in your bubble?

Meg

I don't want to talk about that.

Libby

Someone's got to tell you this. Do you know he's Australian?

Meg

Yes.

Libby

Now I'm not one for generalizations, but I feel I must bring this up. Here this, this Australian comes to break up one of America's fairy book marriages it does make you think, doesn't it?

Meg

I'm not following you.

Libby

Well... I'm just gonna say it. It makes you think of Hitler, and that you're Poland.

Meg

What? That doesn't make any sense! Why in the world would you think of Hitler?

Libby

Well Hitler was Australian wasn't he?

Meg

He was Austrian.

Libby

Oh, now the accent makes a little more sense.


Well our time was up. As I watched poor Meg leave I had to fight back a tear. I wish we lived in a world where bubbly, perky, peppy people were prized no matter what age, but as it looks very unattractive we don't.

Oh, well, what can you do?
