Meryl Streep is my favorite actress. She succesfully sets her character every time on the film. When she plays a role, she is that role, not Meryl Streep playing. Let’s see; from The French Lieutenant’s Woman to Miranda Priestly in The Devil wears Prada. From Julia Child the chef in Julie and Julia to survivor of Birkenau Nazi camp and heavily traumatized Sophie in Sophie’s choice. From strong Margaret Thatcher in Iron Lady to weeping Joanna Kramer in Kramer vs Kramer. Those are roles with different backgrounds and in various eras.
Miss Streep’s talent has brought her 3 Oscars so far for the category of Best Actress (Kramer vs Kramer, Sophie’s Choice and The Iron Lady). And she has been nominated 17 times for the Oscar. Not to mention 8 Golden Globes she won. Shortly; Meryl Streep is a true chameleon. Love her!
