Actress: Meg Ryan ruins date: The queen of romantic comedies fails in dating

When she was still in college, Meg Ryan went on an adventurous and probably quite romantic date. But with just one small sentence she ruined everything. In an interview with Glamor magazine, Ryan remembers how this came to be. And she talks about how she still has problems when it comes to dates today.

Although the actress has long been considered the queen of romantic comedies thanks to films like "Harry and Sally" and "Sleepless in Seattle," Ryan isn't particularly adept at dating after her split from singer John Mellencamp in 2019. “It’s just as crazy as always,” laughs the 62-year-old. "I don't think anyone will ever get good at it. Maybe some people can do it. I don't."

When asked about her worst date, Meg Ryan remembers what seemed to be a particularly embarrassing experience for her. Everything was actually going great back then until she really messed it up. "I had a date in college where he took me on a motorcycle ride through northern Connecticut and Massachusetts. It was great," Ryan says. But the trip didn't go so well when the two lovebirds drove back to the student dorm after dinner.

“I had a great time, Phil,” she said. The problem: "His name was something like Bob. I never heard from him again." But the date itself was fun.

Maybe she'll meet Bob again at some point. At least that's exactly what happens in their latest film, "What Happens Later". The romantic film with Ryan and David Duchovny is about two ex-lovers who meet again after years and are snowed in together in a small airport.
