You could have been Sandra but now you’re Mischa

Meg Ryan is only 3 years older than Sandra Bullock. Only. And yet...

This is Meg today at the opening ceremony for Istanbul Fashion Week. It’s like she’s 70 and wearing a wig. This face, those lips, that chin... remember how cute she used to be? I’ve attached a photo for comparison. It’s heartbreaking.

And especially ironic this week, as another sweetheart Sandra Bullock, who has had her share of “Meg Ryan” type roles, has just been nominated for an Oscar. Sandy is ruling the box office in her late 40s, is not f-cking around (too much if any) with her face, and earning widespread industry support, so much so that she’s almost a lock to win Best Actress. OVER MERYL STREEP.

It wasn’t impossible for Meg either. But she made some bad choices. Starting with Russell Crowe.

Now she’s attending the opening for Istanbul Fashion Week...?

With all due respect to Istanbul Fashion Week, and this is not meant to be pejorative to the event, it’s not the kind of duty an actress of her (former) stature needs to participate in. Julia Roberts wouldn’t. Reese Witherspoon wouldn’t. Sandra Bullock wouldn’t. But Mischa Barton totally would.

Meg is more like Mischa. Shames.
