When she was still in college, she left Meg Ryan (62) for an adventurous and probably very romantic date. But with just one small sentence, she ruined everything. V Interview with Glamor magazine Ryan remembers how it happened. And she talks about how she still has problems dating.

Although the actress has long been considered the queen of romantic comedies thanks to films like Harry & Sally and Sleepless in Seattle, Ryan hasn’t been particularly inclined to date since her split from singer John Mellencamp, 72, in 2019. “It’s as crazy as ever,” the 62-year-old says and laughs. “I don’t think anyone will ever be successful at this. Maybe some people can do it. Me not”.


Why Meg Ryan took an eight-year career break

This happened to Meg Ryan in college.

When asked about her worst date, Meg Ryan recalls what seemed to be a particularly awkward experience for her. In fact, everything was going great back then until she messed it up, she says. “I had a date in college and he took me on a motorcycle ride through northern Connecticut and Massachusetts. It was great,” says Ryan. But the trip didn’t go well when the two lovers returned to the student dormitory after dinner.

“I had a great time, Phil,” she said. Problem: “His name was Bob. I never heard anything more about him.” But the date itself was fun.

Perhaps she will meet Bob again at some point. At least that’s what happens in their latest film, What Happens Later. The romantic film starring Ryan and David Duchovny (63) is about two former lovers who meet again years later and end up snowed in at a small airport together.
