If you were like me, you spent the '90s obsessing over movies like When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, and You've Got Mail.
A big part of their success - let's be honest here, the reason for their success - was Meg Ryan, the magnetic, funny, and stunning actress who starred in all three movies.
After her first movie role in 1981, the actress remembers job offers "just kept coming," until she was forced to drop out of college for her film career.
Along with her classic rom-coms, she starred in other big hits like Kate and Leopold and City of Angels. She even voiced the lead character in Anastasia.
So why does it seem like Meg Ryan disappeared from Hollywood in the early 2000s?
In fact, she did. But first, she was caught up in a tabloid scandal that may have ended her career just as it was at its peak.
Tabloids and gossip magazines had a field day when the actress nicknamed "America's sweetheart" was caught two-timing her husband, Dennis Quaid, with her costar, Russell Crowe.
The fact that Meg and Quaid had an eight-year-old son together only attracted more attention.
Ryan retreated from the spotlight following the scandal, and didn't tell her side of the story until a decade later.
She revealed to W that she was treated like "the scarlet woman" in Hollywood.
She also claimed that her marriage to Quaid was basically over when she had the affair, and that the actor was also dating other women at the same time.
But judging by Ryan's life today, she's not itching to be a Hollywood star again anytime soon.
