The source claimed that the ‘When Harry Met Sally’ star always remembered the “spark,” while adding that she is just waiting for the ‘The Bodyguard’ star’s divorce procedures to wind down before se makes a move. The two stars were once slated to star opposite each other in ‘The Tortilla Curtain’ in mid-2000s, however the film did not materialize.
It’s one of her big regrets that they never managed to work together. While Ryan is single since 2019, following her break up with John Mellencamp, the insider shared, “Meg’s not given up on dating forever, she’s just waiting for the right candidate — and Kevin checks every box of what she’d love in her next guy.
“He’s passionate about his craft, he’s a musician and he’s good-looking,” the insider listed the attributes, before adding, “It also helps that he lives right down the street from her in Santa Barbara!”
They also revealed that “Meg is putting the word out among their mutual friends that she’s there if Kevin ever wants some company.” The insider quipped in conclusion, “He just might give her a call when he’s ready to date again. He always thought she was cute.”
