About Meryl Streep (1949 – )
The person often called "the greatest living film actress," was born in New Jersey, as Mary Louise Streep. Meryl Streep has been nominated for an Oscar an incredible 17 times, more than any other actor, ever. Meryl Streep is also the mother of 4 children. She was educated at Vassar, graduating in 1971. She then went on to the Yale University Drama Department for her masters. She worked in regional theater, then began getting parts in movies.

In the 1977 wartime drama, Julia, she played a small supporting role. In the Deer Hunter, (1978), she played one of the wives of the main characters, and was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar.

Meryl Streep won an Emmy for her portrayal of Inga Helms Weiss in the 1977 television miniseries The Holocaust, which follows the path of members of the Weiss family, all but one of whom perished in the Nazi persecution of Jews in World War II.

Meryl Streep won her first Oscar, for Best Supporting Actress, for her portrayal of the embittered wife of a husband who loves his work more than his family, in Kramer Vs. Kramer, (1979), with Dustin Hoffman.

In 1981, Streep played the title role in The French Lieutenant's Woman, in which she played a love lorn woman turned outcast, in Victorian England, over an imaginary love affair.

In 1982, Meryl Streep won the Academy Award for her portrayal of a beautiful but tormented concentration camp survivor in a twisted relationship with an abusive man, in Sophie's Choice. Alan J. Pakula, Director.

In Mike Nichol's 1983 movie, Silkwood, Streep portrayed the doomed uranium factory worker and activist Karen Silkwood, with Cher as her lesbian roommate and co-worker and Kurt Russell as her co-worker and boyfriend. Meryl Streep was nominated again for Best Actress.

Her next success was the exotic Sydney Pollack movie, Out Of Africa, (1985), detailing the life on an African coffee plantation of writer Isaac Denison (aka the Danish Baroness Karen Blixen), her love affair with a big game hunter and aviator, played by Robert Redford, and the sweeping tale of her loss of love, health and land in Africa. Meryl Streep was nominated for the Oscar for Best Actress for her portrayal.

Meryl Streep was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress in the following films:

Ironweed (1987), in which she plays a barfly bum.

A Cry In The Dark (1988), where she played a mother accused of her child's murder.

Postcards From The Edge (1990) where Streep portrayed a neurotic, drug addicted actress, drowning in the shadow of her mother, a successful film star. The movie is based on the autobiographical novel by Carrie Fisher, daughter of Debbie Reynolds. Mike Nichols, Director.

The Bridges Of Madison County (1995), where Meryl Streep starred with Director Clint Eastwood as a passionate, lonely, married farmer stranded on a farm in the middle of nowhere, until one day a loner, National Geographic photographer arrives at her farm and changes everything.

One True Thing (1998) in which Streep portrays the wife of a self-absorbed and quite possibly philandering university professor (William Hurt), who is also dying of cancer.

Music Of The Heart (1999) where Meryl Streep plays a music teacher who inspires her inner city students.

Adaptation (2002), in which Streep plays a novelist whose research into orchids leads her to a crazed romance with an orchid hunter. Spike Jonze, Director.

The Devil Wears Prada (2006) in which Meryl Streep plays a hardened fashion maven and magazine editor, Miranda Priestly.

Doubt (2008), where Streep plays a steely-hearted nun with strong suspicions that a priest in her parish is molesting children.

Julie And Julia (2009), where Streep gave a wonderfully over-the-top, lusty portrayal of the media kitchen goddess with a huge personality, Julia Child, in this Nora Ephron movie.

It's Complicated, where Meryl Streep gives a warts-and-all portrayal of a woman in a love triangle with her ex-and-remarried husband, played by Alec Baldwin, and a new suitor, played by Steve Martin.

Streep has played many real life people, including Julia Child, Ethel Rosenberg, Karen Silkwood, Karen Blixen, Roberta Guasppari, Lindy Chamberlain, Susan Orlean and Margaret Thatcher.

Streep strives to maintain a certain modesty regarding her success. She is quoted as saying, "I mean, come on; when you have people writing these things, that you're the greatest thing that ever ate scenery, you're dead. You're fucking dead." She also remarked, "I try to lead as ordinary a life as I can. You can't get spoiled if you do your own ironing."

Meryl Streep Quotes...

"Everything we say signifies; everything counts, that we put out into the world. It impacts on kids, it impacts on the zeitgeist of the time."

"Every single decision I make about what material I do, what I'm putting out in the world, is because of my children."

"Having been let out of the barn once, I know I wouldn't be happy if I were home all the time."

"I want to feel my life while I'm in it."

"Instant gratification is not soon enough."
