For those of you who don't know, Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan have appeared in four films together, three of which are among the most beloved romantic comedies in Hollywood history. Due to their amazing chemistry, fans used to speculate that they dated in real life, but apparently that's not the case - the pair have always been just friends.

Tom arrived at the gala with his beautiful wife Rita Wilson, and while we haven't seen photos of Tom and Meg together, we're hoping they had a lovely reunion inside the venue.

The pair have only said nice things about working together. During the press tour for the 1998 flick You've Got Mail, Tom said it's like they never stopped working together. "With Meg, this is the third movie I've made with her and we pick up where we left off," he told an interviewer. "It was not like work."

While Tom has continued to be a star of the silver screen, Meg has kept a low profile. The last movie she made was over a decade ago, the little-known Serious Moonlight, and she has remained out of the spotlight ever since, though does champion her son's movie career.

When it comes to work, Meg told InStyle Magazine back in 2019: "Now I’m focused on producing. I’m also teeing myself up to direct, and I’m working on a fun e-commerce project with some of my friends. But most of all, what I’m ambitious for in the 12 hours a day that I’m awake is my kids’ happiness. I just am."

Meg is mother to Jack Quaid, 29, and Daisy True Ryan, 17.
