Whatever Happened to America's Sweetheart? A Pictorial

I came across a few images of Meg Ryan at the start of the weekend and nearly fell out of my chair. The actress has been away from the big screen for a little while (good idea), apparently getting ready to direct her first feature film. The last time I saw her was when she made a guest appearance on “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and that was shocking enough. (By the way Larry, just when I thought you had gotten yourself into ALL the trouble, you did what you did last night…) But back to our girl Meg, Jesopus H. Godtopus, what has she done to her face? People are always talking about Nicole Kidman’s botox; she’s got nothing on Ryan. And of all the women out there doing stuff to their faces, I think I’m most disappointed in Meg. She was so damned adorable and she could have aged pretty gracefully, she always seemed like a natural girl.

So here’s a pictorial ode and a look back at America’s Sweetheart. You may find it more satisfying to start from the bottom…
