Meg Ryan confides in Gwyneth Paltrow about quitting acting… as she says ‘I didn’t really aim to be an actor’

She’s drastically reduced her acting schedule over the last few years.

And now Meg Ryan has confided in Gwyneth Paltrow about her decision to ‘quit’ acting.

The actress joined Gwyneth at her annual Los Angeles In Goop Health Summit on Saturday, telling her she felt she was being ‘very reactive instead of proactive.’

Rule in a ruched blouse like Gwyneth in Ulla Johnson

Ulla Johnson is an a-list favourite. Her designs have been spotted on the likes of Hilary Duff, Chrissy Teigen and Isla Fisher. And now Gwyneth Paltrow has joined the fan club.

The actress looked incredible in a floral co-ord from the designer for her latest ‘Goop’ event.

It’s the posey ruched sleeve blouse paired with a seemingly unreleased maxi skirt in the same ‘midnight’ print.

We love the dramatic blouse, it’s a real show-stopper, and would look great tucked into a pair of straight leg jeans for day-to-day wear.

Explained Meg as reported by E: ‘I didn’t really aim to be an actor, I was a journalism major at school, and a curious person, and I wanted to go back out into the world and figure out who I was—am—in relationship to other things and other people and other environments.’

While Meg is still acting – she has a role in an upcoming TV series – she only takes on very occasional projects, with gaps from the screen of up to four years.

She explained: ‘I never wanted to be an actress. The whole idea of being a famous person… I felt like a witness to, I didn’t feel exactly in it, and I think that was a really good thing. I felt like a student of it in a way, or that I was watching it in an anthropological way.’

In addition to her actor son Jack Quaid, 26, Meg is the single mother of adopted 13-year-old daughter Daisy Ryan.

She said there were positive and negative parts to being a single mom.

She said: ‘I know I’m really her reference, for better and worse, and I’m glad she has other influences. One thing that is nice is you don’t get overruled.’

Meg also addressed the MeToo movement, saying she felt early fame had protected her.

To interview Meg and her other guests, Gwyneth, 45, hired out  3Labs in Culver City.

The In Goop Health Summit is a day of wellness—or a ‘mind-body-soul reset.’

Along with maintaining her Goop empire, Gwyneth is also planning her wedding to fiance Brad Falchuk.

The couple announced their engagement back in January.

And in a recent interview with GMA, the Goop founder gushed about the idea of being a bride.

‘It’s a very happy time,’ she said. ‘I’ve never had a wedding or any of these fun bride things. So I’m really enjoying myself.’
