Screen beauty Meg Ryan was booed by disappointed crowds at the London premiere of her raunchy new film In the Cut last night (22OCT03) - after she refused to greet waiting fans.

The actress rushed into the LEICESTER SQUARE ODEON cinema after arriving at the screening, angering a crowd of 200 who had braved wet and cold weather for two hours to see her.

Ryan, 41, was jeered at when she ignored the fans chants of, "We want Meg".

The actress also appeared ill-at-ease when photographers took her picture, and only stayed at the after-show party at the SAATCHI GALLERY for less than an hour.

Meg's publicist ANNETTE WOLFE says, "Meg did nothing wrong tonight. She shouldn't have been booed. We can't do anything about the reception the crowd gave her. She has nothing to say."
