For a while, Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks were the perfect romantic comedy couple. They starred in Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got MailJoe vs. the Volcano, and even Ithaca from a few years ago. It appears on screen that they have some great chemistry. After all, they wouldn’t get asked to do several romantic comedies together if they didn’t. It seems as though they also have some chemistry in real life to be able to act together so well.

Sleepless in Seattle is 25 years old now and even went back to movie theaters earlier this month. Did you head to the theater to rewatch this classic romantic comedy? As the movie got some publicity again, Meg was asked why they love working with each other so much.
