There’s a fair amount of competition for the title of “America’s Sweetheart” but we think this week’s entry might just have the inside track on the title.

Meg Ryan has been portraying wholesome women since she played Goose’s wife in TopGun. And while she’s justifiably famous for her many perky roles, she’s also played women with a little bit more spice, including her role opposite of Mark Harmon in The Presidio.

In any event, we’ve long had a crush on her. We remember when she was all over the tabloids after a supposed affair with Russell Crowe while on the set of  Proof of Life. The tabloid frenzy completely overshadowed the movie, which is a shame, as it was really quite good.
