After that, Meg Ryan established herself as one of the most successful actresses of the 90's and early 2000's.

Sleepless in Seattle (1993)

Grossing over $220 million worldwide, this romantic comedy-drama had us all captivated by the story-line and moving characters.

Appearing next to Tom Hanks, Ryan is able to make us fall in love all over again.

French Kiss (1995)

Hoping on a plane to Paris, Ryan flies to meet her straying fiance and gets into trouble when a charming crook sitting next to her uses her to smuggle a stolen diamond necklace.
