Meg Ryan wouldn’t let you forget who she was either. After Top Gun, she starred in at least one movie year after year, including Innerspace in 1987, and D.O.A. and The Presidio in 1988. Though she is known as a rom-com queen, she started out acting in more comedy movies.

Innerspace was the most successful of the three, and it is on that set where she met future husband, Dennis Quaid.
