Today marks the 50th birthday of Meg Ryan, the original America’s sweetheart and queen of romantic comedies. Meg’s breakout role in When Harry Met Sally skyrocketed her to superstardom, and we all wanted to “have what she’s having.” She then went on to star in some of the best romantic comedies of our time, including Sleepless in Seattle, City of Angels and You’ve Got Mail.
Meg seems to have given up on the rom-coms these days, focusing on more serious roles at the moment. We have to wonder if that has to do with her attempts to reverse the signs of aging with some minor tweaks that led to major results. That’s why we like to think of her as the natural beauty she was, the one we still like to pair with a pint of Ben and Jerry’s. So we’ll settle on our couch and celebrate her milestone with a movie after looking at these 20 pictures of Meg Ryan through the years.

Edgar (out today), The Great Gatsby (2012) and Sinatra (rumored, 2013), this über-A-lister isn’t slowing down any time soon.

Jenny McCarthy hit the big time as 1994′s Playboy Playmate of the Year, but many of us became acquainted with her as the loud-mouthed, buxom host of MTV’s Singled Out.

She has since landed roles in numerous TV shows and films, but has made the most headlines through her Autism activism and controversial anti-vaccination stance. Politics aside, McCarthy turns 39 today and has never looked better. Let’s celebrate the bikini-lovin’ babe’s b-day with some eye candy. [Photos: MTV, Getty Images, Splash News Online]
