It’s nice to see Meg Ryan and her longtime pal Laura Dern and their respective daughters having fun shopping in New York. Meg’s little girl Daisy is 6 and Laura’s daughter Jaya is 6 also and the kids are fast friends. Laura’s divorce just might be on hold because she and her estranged husband Ben Harper have been seen looking chummy in LA.

    Meg aka “Sally” looks BEAT. But to be fair, “Harry” better known as Billy Crystal—has hit the wall even harder. He looks like unbaked Bisquick these days!

    (And we’ll never understand why Meg insists on lugging her size 11 feet around in heavy Engineer Boots—which only make them look even larger and more ungainly.)

    The kids are cute.

    Oh, and Laura Dern in “Citizen Ruth” and as Katherine Harris in that HBO movie about the 2000 Florida election recount: ABSOLUTELY PERFECT.

    Are American women notorious for having big feet? I quite often see pictures of American models or actresses, and am shocked at how big their feet are. I don’t know which seems more particular to the U.S.A., huge stompers or cankles.

    I remember being in Laura’s dads trailer on a film set years ago. Nice guy, but the pictures of naked she males he had taped all over the walls was different.

    Patrick: Do tell!

    Something Nice, Patrick has rearranged the facts, I am sure. This is more likely the case:

    The trailer is Patrick’s.
    The pictures of the she-males are his.
    Patrick has pasted Bruce Dern’s head on all the she-males.
    The set was a television set playing Facts of Life.

    The movie was called Harry Tracy. Filmed in Victoria and Portland also I believe. I met some crew in a restuarant downtown and they invited me onto the set to check it out. Bruce was hung over and tired but friendly enough for a short visit. There were pics of naked hermaphrodites{huge cocks on em} taped all over the trailers walls. A nice homey setup for some hollywoods stars I guess, I dunno? Sick sense of humour? Wouldn’t play well on my walls.

    The Backstreet Boys and Zac Ephron cannot take up so much space, surely.

    Awwwww, Patrick, is that what you say just before you come?

    Thanks for the backgrounder, Patrick. Bruce Dern has always marched to the beat of a different drum, shall we say.

    Years ago he did a movie with an actress called Maud Adams, a very striking former model.

    The story called for their two characters to have sex together. In the process of promoting said movie, Dern insisted that he and Adams had really been fucking during their scene, the implication being that Maud just couldn’t resist ol’ Brucie when the cameras started rolling.

    Uh-huh. Adams was pissed, but politely and firmly asserted that Bruce was full of shit. Which he no doubt was. Talented guy who’s had a long career (he’s great in “Monster”), but def. not altogether there.

    Meg must still have anorexia. She is super gaunt-looking, even with heavy coats on. And come to think of it, she does have an affinity for combat boots and such.

    Meg Ryan looks very unhealthy in this picture – skeletal is how I’d describe her. Not an attractive look on anyone.

    OMG!! At first glance I totally thought this was Blyth Danner & Gwyneth Paltrow. Meg Ryan looks like shit!!. She looks like an old & frail shadow of her former self. Good to see her out, though.

    Something New, so Bruce is, “acting banging” Maud in the scene and then relates it to his peeps as the real deal and Maud denies it. Maybe he did but A.his wee pecker was to tiny B.You could drive a truck up Maud’s vag and she wouldn’t notice. I suspect A.
    Sebastion could you detail the embarrassment of the A. scenario for Janet’s readers please.

    @PB Lover: Funny quote and you’re absolutely right. In fact, some actors probably owe a great deal of their “art” to slightly off-kilter mental state.

    Case in point: Winona Ryder in Black Swan, which I’ve just seen. She’s barely in the movie—but in every one of her few scenes, she just telegraphs mental unbalance, which is appropriate to her character, and COMPLETELY BELIEVABLE because it’s WINONA.

    (BTW the rumors that she stripped her hotel room down to the bare walls during production and took everything home with her—including the plumbing fixtures—are unsubstantiated, as far as I know 🙂 )

    Well I got curious and looked up Bruce’s very extensive and impressive filmography. The movie I was thinking of is called “Tattoo” made in 1981, just before Dern filmed “Harry Tracy” as mentioned by Patrick.

    Hats off to ANY actor who can land so many gigs.

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
