“When Harry Met Sally” and “Sleepless in Seattle” star Meg Ryan bought Hank Azaria’s Soho apartment.

According to Variety, the actress paid $8 million for Azaria’s 4,000-square-foot loft. The sale was reported last year, but the buyer’s name was only known as Third World Dog Trust.

Azaria, best known as the voice of Moe Szyslak — and other characters — on “The Simpsons,” bought the Soho loft at 84 Mercer Street for $4.6 million in 2005.

The unit is a full-floor converted warehouse on Mercer Street with three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a private gym and an atrium hall. The loft — previously owned by artist Cindy Sherman — had been rented out for $16,000 a month prior to the sale.

Azaria and his wife still live in New York. Azaria bought a Central Park West co-op for $9.2 million in May. [Variety] — Claire Moses
