Is John Mellencamp encouraging Meg Ryan to go with her natural face?


Ah, crusty love. Is it just me, or do they look a little less crusty than usual? These are some newish photos of John Mellencamp and Meg Ryan in NYC yesterday or the say before. Meg’s clothes fit! I like her coat too. Can I just say something that I’ve only recently noticed – despite my jokes about how John and Meg are “crusty” (like, they never shower and they always look smelly to me), I think they may be good for each other. Meg’s face looks less jacked, right? She may even be trying to go natural, or natural-ish. Whatever is going on, it’s an improvement, and I hope John is actively encouraging The Natural Meg.


John’s divorce is final now – he’s been single and ready to mingle since August. The Enquirer keeps running stories about how Meg and John are always just about to marry, but they still haven’t, and I haven’t heard anything about wedding plans from any other outlet. So… I don’t know if it’s on, or if they’ll just be together without getting hitched. I tend to think that Meg is the one who is gun-shy about marriage, and John might want to make it official. Still, they are definitely loved up – Meg has been following him around like a groupie all year. Ah, crusty groupie, crusty love.

    How does she raise two kids while being a “groupie”?

  2. spinner says:

    awwww…I like them together. Seems like a good fit to me & yes, she looks more natural than she has in a long time.

  3. Rita says:

    For the first time, they look very natural and good together in the pics….and I totally agree that dirty crusty people are best with dirty crusty people.

    I assume “dirty crusty” is not being bigoted since “dirty crusty” is an individual choice and not a category…but their numbers seem to be growing.

    I think the Natural Face Ship has already sailed.

  5. tracking says:

    There was a recent blind about an actress hoping for a comeback who was contractually obligated not to mess with her face any more. Popular guess was MR. She does look better, but still filler in the upper lip (she originally had pretty much no lips).

  6. daisydoodle says:

    I’m imagine they both smell like a pack of stale cigarettes….both found each other because they both have the same habit….

  7. imabrat says:

    They don’t look so “crusty” to me. Granted they don’t appear glamorous, but they don’t look like they need baths. I think they’re a well suited couple and if they’re happy, then good.

  8. Nancy C. says:

    upper lip still a mess. they never look natural. dont understand why he continues to smoke.

  9. Dibba says:

    can she get her lips back?

  10. blonde on the dock says:

    They look really cute together!

  11. BerMan says:

    Great jacket on Meg. They look good. Leave them be.

  12. Yeahbaby says:

    Why do people bitch about her lips? They look fine and normal to me.

    He’s looking good as well. Rock on!

  13. Sloane Wyatt says:

    Meg’s original lips were not full and cushiony like the style seems to be today ever since Angelina Jolie came on the scene. Look at her in “You’ve got Mail” or “Sleepless in Seattle”, and her natural thin lips and smile are off the charts gorgeous. Now those same lips look are the fakey trout pout loaded with yucky fillers or, God Forbid, permanent restalyne type crap.

    John, please keep her loved up so much she decides to ditch the filled phony lips that ruin her looks and spend her time productively with true beauty treatments like regular boning.

  14. MJ says:

    This is definitely an improvement. At least they look like they may possibly be SOMEONE’S very full natural lips, just not hers.

  15. Lantana says:

    I think Meg Ryan looks great, and John’s hair looks better than the last time I paid any attention. I personally think it would be a blast to go on the road with Mellencamp, but I didn’t realize she has kids. Time to Google 🙂

  16. kel says:

    Most pictures I see of him he is holding a cigarette so I can imagine what he smells like. It’s hard to tell with her face but the lips are probably at the point of no return. Will be fun to watch how it all evolves.

  17. Joan says:

    @ Azurea – Meg’s son Jack is well into his twenties now, so she doesn’t need to be raising him, so to speak. As for her daughter, Daisy, who’s to know? Maybe Meg is just taking some time for herself. Maybe Daisy is just in school.

    I wouldn’t say Meg’s face looks less jacked. I think she has finally had some good surgery – looks like a good facelift, in fact.

  18. Lee says:

    Aww, they’re cute together. And she does look good – even if her top lip is full, she looks pretty.

  19. goldenbird says:

    I just looked at IMBD and Jack was born in 1992, so he’s 19. Daisy was adopted in January 2006, so she’s 5 (or maybe 6 as I don’t know how old she was at adoption.)

  20. smh says:

    well it couldn’t be worse than this so…

  21. Camille says:

    Her face looks better, I hope she has stopped with all of the fillers and crap.

  22. Esmom says:

    Nope, sorry, still as crusty as ever. His haircut is cancelled out by the infernal cig that seems to be surgically attached to his hand, imo.

    And I’m afraid I agree w/Rita, lol, the Natural Face Ship has most definitely sailed!

  23. Kim says:

    Goodness lets hope so! She looks like a freak!

  24. Wil in Minneapolis says:

    It’s kinda weird .. they look to have similar noses. They could be .. *GULP!* .. siblings!!! 😯

  25. Bec says:

    Her bad facelift from years ago is finally settling in — I don’t think it’s anything but that. I’m afraid she mau have done something permanent to her lips.

    i have known john since high school. he has always been a womanizer. he still is. he never could stay with one woman. i have told him he had a problem. he admitted yeah he did. but also admitted he dont like staying with one woman. he even asked me out for a date. i just laughed and said no. he kinda got a little cocky but thats john. i wouldnt get caught in the love trenches with john. he aint worth it
