RIP to the writer who wrecked mens’ peace of mind with the most famous fake orgasm scene in history! How will we ever forget Meg Ryan’s performance in When Harry Met Sally and the old lady’s immortal line, “I’ll have what she’s having.” If you want to see it again, watch it here!
Screenwriter Nora Ephron passed away yesterday aged 71, having had leukaemia since 2006. She also wrote the screen plays for Silkwood, Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail and Julie and Julia.
She wrote the following lists of things she won’t and will miss when she dies in 2010 and used them in her book, I Remember Nothing.
What I Won’t Miss
Bad dinners like the one we went to last night
Technology in general
Washing my hair
Polls that show that 32 percent of the American people believe in creationism
The collapse of the dollar
The sound of the vacuum cleaner
E-mail. I know I already said it, but I want to emphasize it.
Panels on Women in Film
Taking off make up every night
What I Will Miss
The concept of waffles
A walk in the park
The idea of a walk in the park
Shakespeare in the Park
Reading in bed
The view out the window
Dinner at home just the two of us
Dinner with friends
Dinner with friends in cities where none of us lives
Next year in Istanbul
Pride and Prejudice
The Christmas tree
One for the table
Taking a bath
Coming over the bridge to Manhattan
