SIR Michael Parkinson says he wants to apologise to actress Meg Ryan — 18 years after their excruciating TV chat.
Parky, 86, was angered when the Hollywood star turned her back on other guests and gave one-word answers to his questions.
He said they were both “discomforted” on his BBC talk show in 2003.
He said if he ever met Meg, 59, again he would say: “I’m sorry. But you must understand that you played a part in it, too.”
He tells The Radio Times, out today: “I wish I hadn’t lost my temper with Meg Ryan. I wish I’d dealt with it in a more courteous manner.”
After the interview to promote her film The Cut, Meg labelled Parky a “nut”.
He called her “the most boring bore”.
