Meg Ryan insists she’s fine with aging, despite new face

Meg RyanMeg Ryan insists she’s not worried about finding movie roles now that she’s 47, even though she had a two year hiatus from work between 2005 and 2006, followed by the forgettable release, In the Land of Women. She told Movies.ie that she’s “very happy” at her current age. “Turning 40 in Hollywood was definitely something for me but it doesn’t feel like an ending,” she said. “My interests have expanded and I have never felt more creative than I do right now. There is now this demographic of women over 31 and older who want movies that are kind of about them,” she said, undoubtedly referring to the success of Sex and the City. In fact, ads for her new movie, The Women, are calling it better than Sex and the City. That may be, but if Ryan is so unconcerned about aging, why is she sporting an entirely new face in the film? Several movie critics have already commented on it in their reviews of The Women, adding that if she has anymore surgery, she’ll be virtually unrecognizable.

    She looks like Joker (jack nicholson not heath ledger) in this picture.

    Good thing that she’s very happy at her present age of 47 as god knows how much more horrific her plastic surgery would get if she wasn’t.

    True beauty comes from within and not a plastic surgeon’s knife, but unfortunately Hollywood is so obsessed with youth that actors have to resort to such tactics to look younger.

    I think it’s a shame when they resort to surgery in their never-ending quest for youth. Look at Jamie Lee Curtis, she’s aging naturally, and I think it’s awesome when a woman is confident and comfortable with who she really is.

    we’re all going to get old.
    so who cares if people do whatever they want when they get old>??
    i bet some of those critics were women and lemme tell you, you’ll be worrying about wrinkles and lines soon enough if you arent already!

    She’s totally messed her face up. Naturally aging can’t make you look any worse than she does now.

    I think Meg looks a lot better than she did when she was putting cologen in her lips. It is sad that pretty woman such as Meg, Priscilla Presley and Joan Van Ark have hurt their looks with surgery.

  7. Nancy • September 12, 2008 @ 6:25 PM

    That’s true. Priscilla Presley’s lips are pretty messed up. And that ‘Catwoman’ chick….HOLY CRAP! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH ALREADY!!!

    And with Angelina Jolie’s lips, you could stick her to the wall.

    Just saw ‘Women’ tonight. Quite enjoyed it, and her face didn’t look anything like the photo above. Actually looked a lot better. Maybe this was taken before surgery…? Not sure, but perhaps we should find less superficial things to focus our concerns on.

    I never realized Meg Ryan had an Adam’s Apple! What a horrible photo!
    If she’s fine with aging, why all the surgery etc?

    ha ha Minerva, really funny comment

    So, Meg has no problem with being 40, expanding her interests, her creativity – but she wants a little “lift” with some surgery. So what? Her face, her body, her money.

    truthfully, I can’t even see anything “horrifying” in this picture. No issue at all with it.

    Women in Hollywood, especially actresses, need
    to take heed. Unless you’re Joan Rivers, “MACK
    THE KNIFE” will not be your swan song. Meg Ryan was a cute up and coming actress, who’s allowed some “yes” person to convince her that she still needs to retain the up & coming “look”. Meg, I would stick with botox from now on, and stay away from “surgery”. There’s nothing wrong with aging gracefully,
    but if you can’t age with grace, age with
    intelligence.
