Stars pay tribute to Nora Ephron

Stephen Spielberg and his wife Kate Capshaw, Steve Martin and Meg Ryan were just a few of the famous friends who attended the memorial for Hollywood screenwriter Nora Ephron yesterday.

"How do you talk about a friend who said everything you wished you could say?" said Meryl Streep in her address to the service in New York's Lincoln Centre. "Everything you wanted to say in the world, but better and shorter and funnier?" Other speakers included Tom Hanks and Martin Short.

The writer of When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle, died last month aged 71.
