Today marked the 57th birthday of America's most celebrated living actress, Meryl Streep. My Meryl month isn't really turning out as I'd hoped (new job. no time. etc...) and I had planned an extensive celebration of many things La Streep on her birthday. Here is a meager attempt.
A is for Accents. In the 80s her nationality changed every film.
B is for Bette Davis who felt Meryl was her successor as the greatest actress.
C is for "Click. Click. Click" Kate Hepburn's rude quip about Streep's acting.
D is for Death Becomes Her Watch Streep's hilarious "Me" song
E is for Evita She wanted the role that Madonna got.
F is for Filming. Simply Streep has photos from Dark Matter set.
G is for Gummer, her husband and children's last name.
H is for Humble. Anyone else with her status in the industry...
I is for Ironweed. She and Jack are both superb.
J is for Julia her film debut in 1977.
K is for Kids. She has four of them with Don Gummer.
L is for Laughs. Best known for drama but she's also seriously funny.
M is for Married. Her 28th anniversary with Don Gummer is in Sept.
N is for Natalie Portman. Globes 2004: "Congratulations... Natalie!"
O is for Oscar. She's been nominated 13 times, winning twice.
P is for Plenty. One of her best and least seen star turns.
Q is for Queen Ant, her character in the animated film Ant Bully
R is for Raves. ModFab gives her her millionth.
S is for Sophie the character that made her legendary.
T is for Theater. She hasn't done much since the late 70s.
U is for Upcoming Films. Her plate is full. Seriously: look.
V is for Vocals. She sings superbly in four of her films.
W is for 'Walk of Fame'. She got her star in '98.
X is for X ratings. She hasn't been in any. (Hey, it's X. I'm grasping)
Y is for "You Don't Know Me" -god, she sings beautifully.
Z is for zzzzz because I have to catch some instead of playing on the computer. You know I'm swamped when a post like this has no photos.
