Meg Ryan Surfaces After 6-Month Hiatus, Leaving Fans Stunned by “Unrecognizable” Transformation

Meg Ryan reappeared in public after a six-month absence to support Michael J. Fox ahead of the release of his new documentary on Parkinson’s disease. The 61-year-old actress, known for her role in “Sleepless in Seattle,” has intentionally stepped back from the public eye in recent years. Ryan attended a screening of Fox’s upcoming production, “STILL: A Michael J. Fox Movie,” where they appeared happy together. However, fans quickly commented on Ryan’s new look, describing it as “unrecognizable” and sparking rumors of plastic surgery, despite her past denials.

Critics online expressed less than favorable opinions about Meg Ryan’s appearance, reigniting a debate she has addressed before. Some Twitter users criticized her supposed use of plastic surgery, while others urged women to avoid procedures like Botox and fillers. Ryan has previously stated that she pays little attention to negative opinions about her appearance, addressing rumors of plastic surgery in a 2015 interview with Porter Magazine.

Despite the online chatter, Ryan seemed to be in good spirits at the screening held at the Alice Tully Hall in the Lincoln Center, New York. She posed for pictures with celebrities like Bill Murray and Elvis Costello on Michael J. Fox’s significant night. Fox, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at 29, is releasing a documentary focusing on his life over the three decades since his diagnosis.

In a recent emotional interview, Fox discussed the challenges of living with Parkinson’s, acknowledging that it was getting tougher. He also shared details about spinal surgery after the discovery of a benign tumor that affected his ability to walk. Fox emphasized that people don’t die from Parkinson’s but with it, and he candidly spoke about his own mortality.
