Lessons They Learned From Tom and Meg

Closer Weekly - - News Now -

TWO DECADES af­ter they ap­peared in the hit 1998 ro­man­tic com­edy You’ve Got Mail with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, the film’s former child stars re­united to rem­i­nisce about the shoot. “Tom is a peo­ple per­son,” re­calls Jef­frey Sca­per­rotta, 25, who played the vet­eran ac­tor’s half-brother. “He is the type of per­son who knew ev­ery­body’s name on set.”

The star’s easy­go­ing man­ner also helped Jef­frey feel com­fort­able in front of the cam­era. “I didn’t know I was ac­tu­ally film­ing be­cause of how friendly [Tom] was with me,” he says.

Like­wise, Hallee Hirsh, 30, who played Tom’s aunt Annabelle, learned a les­son about be­ing pre­pared from Meg. “I was so starstruck by Meg,” ad­mits Hallee. “I re­mem­ber watch­ing her per­form a scene and say­ing the lines each time like she had never said them be­fore, and be­ing in so much awe of her.”

“I wanted to be Meg Ryan when I grew up,” says Hallee (in­set left).
