Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal reunite 25 years after "When Harry Met Sally"

Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal were together again Monday night, 25 years after they first played friends who became lovers in "When Harry Met Sally."

The two came together to celebrate the director of the 1989 romantic comedy, Rob Reiner, as he received the Film Society of Lincoln Center's Chaplin Award in New York City.

Onstage at the gala, Crystal and Ryan reminisced about "When Harry Met Sally" and where their characters would be today, according to The Hollywood Reporter. They agreed that Harry would still be a political consultant, now working for New York's Mayor Bill DeBlasio.

The two also recalled one of the film's most famous scenes -- when Sally showed Harry how women fake orgasms. They revealed that when Ryan struggled to get the scene right, Reiner jumped in to demonstrate, pounding on the table -- and Crystal joked that it made him a little excited.

Michael Douglas, Martin Scorsese and James Caan were also among the stars on hand saluting Reiner, who has directed such films as "This is Spinal Tap," "The Princess Bride," "Stand By Me" and "A Few Good Men."

It was recently revealed that Ryan will provide the voice of the narrator in the pilot of the CBS spinoff "How I Met Your Dad." Crystal, meanwhile, voiced the role of Mike Wizowski in last year's "Monsters, Inc." prequel, "Monsters University."
