MEG RYAN left a NEW YORK diner stunned - when she walked up to him and kissed him.
The PROOF OF LIFE (2000) beauty mistook 41-year-old BOB MITCHELL for an old friend and rushed up to him when he walked into trendy Manhattan eaterie O'NIEAL's on 19 April (01).
After realising her mistake, the blonde actress apologized and ran back to her friends. The shocked off-broadway producer meanwhile, sat down on a stool and coolly said to the bartender, "Meg Ryan just gave me a big kiss. " (IG/WNWCPL/MCM)
