Happy 50th Birthday, Meg Ryan!

November 19th, 2011 12:00pm EST
Meg Ryan
Meg Ryan might not be the star she once was when she was breaking our hearts in classic romantic comedies like "When Harry Met Sally" and "Sleepless In Seattle," but there's no doubt she deserves her place in Hollywood history.

Nowadays, she's more famous for her private life and her romances than she is for film roles, but she has already amassed some iconic characters including orgasm-faking Sally Albright ("When Harry Met Sally"), Annie Reed ("Sleepless in Seattle"), Alice Green ("When a Man Loves a Woman") and Kathleen Kelly ("You've Got Mail").

Away from the big screen, she's a mom o...

The Golden Raspberry Awards (or Razzies) are a kind of Anti-Oscar, dolling out cheap plastic statuettes to the worst movies that Hollywood plops onto the guileless public every year.

Heading up this year’s awards with 7 nominations each are the ultra-big budget sequel “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” and the comparably expensive box office sink pit “Land of the Lost.” “Transformers” wa...

Luckily, Starpulse.com has one such fool. So it's time for a round of everybody's favorite game: Who Will Win and Who Should Win?

The Most Underrated And Overrated Saturday Night Live Hosts
