Meg Ryan Feels Like She Is in "First Gear" Now After Her Subtle Career Change (Exclusive)

Motherhood changed everything for Meg Ryan. "I really recalibrated things when I became a mom," Meg, who has a son, Jack, 26, and a daughter, Daisy. "I felt like I got truer as a person. I’m more myself," the 56-year-old exclusively revealed to Closer. Now, Meg — who has reunited romantically with musician-painter John Mellencamp — also feels more inspired at work. "I never really defined myself as an actor," she admitted at the recent Bentonville Film Festival. "I think at heart I’m a writer. So that was a natural progression for me." And it led her to directing. She made her big-screen debut with 2015’s World War II drama Ithaca (co-starring Jack), and now she’s working on a new film "about a publishing company in New York," she says. "It’s very fast-talking, a real throwback movie." (Photo Credit: Getty Images) Ithaca reunited Meg with one of her favorite people: frequent co-star Tom Hanks.
