‘Big Little Lies’ wasted no time catching the audience up on what the women now dubbed The Monterey Five have been up to since the murderous Season 1 finale.
As award shows go, the Golden Globes usually isn’t much of a trailblazer. In hindsight, though, the 2017 edition of the event — and Meryl Streep’s appearance in particular — set the prickly tone for the relationship between President Trump and the entertainment industry, and the template for award telecasts that followed.
Whoops! We nearly replaced one legend with another at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards!
A group of more than 1,000 women in entertainment have detailed a comprehensive plan to combat sexual harassment across industries.
Meryl released a statement about Harvey Weinstein along with a request to personally chat with Rose after she was called out for her silent protest in a now-deleted tweet. Rose wrote, “Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @goldenglobes in a silent protest. YOUR SILENCE is THE problem.” Find out what Meryl had to say in response.
Meryl Streep is defending herself against Rose McGowan’s claim that the award-winning actress was silent about Harvey Weinstein.
On Monday, a 1979 Time magazine interview with Meryl Streep was unearthed by Slate in which the three-time Oscar winner recounted a time when her former Kramer vs. Kramer co-star Dustin Hoffman…

Just a night after amfAR’s gala and a celebration hosted by Burberry toasting comedian James Corden, BAFTA threw a very English celebration at the Beverly Hills Hotel for the Britannia Awards. This year’s honorees included a diverse group ranging from funny woman Amy Schumer to screen legend Meryl Streep, and taking in the show were a crew of hip, young Brits including Jack Whitehall, Ed Westwick, and John Boyega who stars in the upcoming Star Wars film. After all the awards were handed out, the real fun started and how could it not with a crowd that included Harrison Ford with wife Calista Flockhart, James Corden and Julia Carey, and Orlando Bloom.

FGI ACTING UP: The Fashion Group International’s Night of Stars next week very well could be nicknamed the Night of Actresses. Meryl Streep will hand over the Superstar award to Alber Elbaz, Katie Holmes will present theFashion Star award to Bruno Frisoni for Roger Vivier and Diane Kruger will do the honors for Fashion Star Jason Wu. “Girls” actress Allison Williams will give the Retail Trailblazer award to eBay’s Marcelle Parrish. While not technically an actress, “Ladies of London” star and Jimmy Choo founder Tamara Mellon will take to the podium to give Pinterest its due for Technology Innovation by giving the award to Evan Sharp.
Billed as “The Revolutionaries,” guests at the Oct. 22 event will catch performances by jazz musician Brian Newman and singer-songwriter Tori Kelly. They will no doubt be even more enthusiastic for Justin Timberlake, the winner of the Lord & Taylor Fashion Oracle Award. But FGI’s Margaret Hayes isn’t giving everything away — choosing to hold off on revealing who his presenter will be. (No word yet, either, on Fashion Star honoree Jonathan Anderson’s presenter.)
Other presenters attending the Simon Doonan-emceed black-tie dinner will be John Demsey for Beauty Star winner Karyn Khoury; Harper Bazaar’s Glenda Bailey for Brand

Neil Young gave Meryl Streep a few guitar lessons as the actress was prepping for her role in the film Ricki and the Flash. The film stars Streep as a grocery store clerk who’s an aspiring rock star by night. “Oh man, that’s fun,” Streep says in one online video as Young demonstrates some rocking guitar effects. “That’s because I turned everything all the way up.”

Aug. 04 – Meryl Streep and her daughter Mamie Gummer share the screen in the new film “Ricki and the Flash.” John Russell reports.
What’s not to love about actress Meryl Streep? She’s gorgeous, talented, makes us laugh/makes us cry, and by all accounts is just about as humble as they come. The popular actress turns 66 today, June 22, and we wanted to find some way to mark the occasion. While oodles of ink and pixels have been spent chronicling the career of the three-time Academy Award-winning star, we did uncover a few tidbits about her that might surprise you. Here are just five of them:
1. She’s short.
OK, not short like Martin Scorsese short (5’3″), but she’s only 5’6″ despite playing the 6’2″ Julia Child in the 2009 film “Julia and Julia.” For that movie, sets and camera angles were adjusted to make Streep appear taller, not to mention having her wear some seriously high-heeled shoes.
2. She’s got brains, not just beauty.
Streep received her undergraduate degree from Vassar and her MFA from Yale in 1975. Early on, she showed an amazing ability to mimic accents and to quickly memorize lines.
3. She filmed the “choice” scene in “Sophie’s Choice” in just one take.
It’s been said that she refused to do it a second time because it left her so emotionally drained. Clearly a case of one of Hollywood’s most memorable scenes done right the first time.
4. It’s a family affair, and has been for awhile.
While viewers will be seeing Streep acting alongside her eldest daughter, 31-year-old Mamie Gummer, in the upcoming “Ricki and the Flash,” Gummer has been in Streep’s films before. She played a cameo in the 1986 “Heartburn” when she was just two years old, and also appeared in the 2007 “Evening.” Streep has three other children.
5. She holds the record for Academy Award nominations: 19.
In total, she’s had 259 award nominations and 171 wins. But if you’re a fan, you likely already knew that.
Happy birthday, Ms. Streep. Here’s hoping you have many many more.

Hot Tip Alert!
I got the chills watching the Dancing With the Stars 10th Anniversary Special in the ballroom last week. Maybe I've inhaled too much Disney pixie dust over the season, but there was truly something magical…
How long have I been wanting to write that headline?! Almost a year after Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis took home the season 18 Mirrorball trophy, the sizzling superstars are returning to the dance floor…
As costar Emily Blunt recently said of multiple Oscar winner and overall national treasure Meryl Streep, “She’s so amazing it’s, like, annoying at this point.” Her fashion sense, however, hasn’t always been as spot-on as her acting skills. Here’s how Streep, who’s won three Oscars and been nominated a record 18 times, went from suburban Jersey girl to glamorous red-carpet fixture.

Meryl Davis and Charlie White won America’s hearts in February, as the dazzling ice-dancing duo took home the gold at the Sochi Olympics. And the excitement didn’t stop there. Here, in this conversation with TODAY.com for our series “2014 Voices,” they reflect on their most memorable year yet, their first-ever break from competition, and share their hopes for 2015.
Meryl Streep, who plays a witch in the new movie “Into the Woods,” said she’d resisted similar roles in the past, but had a change of heart.
“I was offered three witches [roles] when I turned 40 — in one year,” she told ABC News recently. “And I thought: ‘Oh, this is how it’s gonna go?’ … At this point in my career, I think, I really think hard about: ‘What am I putting into the world with each project?’”
Streep said it was different when she was asked to appear in “Into the Woods,” based on a musical by legendary composer Stephen Sondheim and due out Christmas Day.
Her real anxiety came from her desire to bring something new to the film.
“I was just up in my kitchen and just singing the karaoke version as, as much as I could, because I wanted to be ready,” said Streep, whose opening song — a rap — was done entirely live.
The movie, directed by Rob Marshall, also features actors Anna Kendrick, Emma Blunt, James Corden and Chris Pine as well as Christine Baranski and Tracey Ullman.
“Into the Woods” is a Walt Disney Pictures production.
“You know when you’re young and desperate, you just sort of jump into everything that you possibly can,” Streep said. “But now, I really consider, ‘Is this hurting or is this helping in some way?’”
Streep said Sondheim appeared on the set at times.
“First day, we were recording and he was there — Sondheim — unannounced and my song was first and Rob [Marshall] was somewhere and didn’t tell me,” Streep said. “But he was amazing. … The whole orchestra rose and applauded him.”
She told ABC News she was “proud” of the movie, also a famous musical performed in many high schools across the US.
“It’s a truthful thing and I feel like we served this great artist, Stephen Sondheim,” she said. “We did serve him.”
ABC News’ Christine Romo contributed to this story.
Happy birthday, Meryl Streep! Hollywood’s indisputable sweetheart is 65 today and we can’t believe it. Not only is she looking fantastic, but the woman is on fire. Over 35 years since her first Oscar win as a newcomer to Tinseltown, Queen M was a nominee for the 18th, yes, 18th, time at this year’s Oscar’s for her performance in “August Osage County,” making her the most nominated actress in history. And though she’s a bit older than the average Hollywood actress, she’s defying all odds, still being one of the industry’s most sought-after actresses with several upcoming films in the works.
We get it, Mer. You’re unstoppable. Here are nine reasons Meryl will always be the woman of our dreams. (Is there anything she can’t do?)
1. She’s one smart cookie.
She’s played a prime minister and an Editor-in-Chief on screen, but Streep would have been just as successful if Hollywood hadn’t come knocking. She attended both Vassar College and Yale’s School of Drama. In fact, she reportedly had applied for law school, but ended up oversleeping the morning of her interview and took it as a sign that she was destined for something else.
2. Her many accents.
From a sassy Southerner, to British iron lady, to a straight-talking nun in the Bronx, the Jersey-made actress can pull off any, we mean any, accent like a native. Here’s the proof.
3. She’s charitable.
Her enviable designer duds from “The Devil Wears Prada” were auctioned off for charity at her suggestion. She donated her entire salary ($ 1 million) from “The Iron Lady” to the National Women’s History museum. And recently it was uncovered that Streep and her husband, Don Gummer, have donated around $ 1 million to a variety of causes, including Meals On Wheels and the Coalition for the Homeless, quietly through their charity, the Silver Mountain Foundation for the Arts. Saint Meryl?
4. Her body confidence.
There’s nothing sexier than confidence and well, Meryl just wears it well. “I wasted so many years thinking I wasn’t pretty enough and why didn’t I have Jessica Lange’s body or someone else’s legs?” Streep said in a 2009 interview. “What a waste of time. Now I’m enjoying the tatters of what’s left and I’m very happy. Part of it is having beautiful strong daughters and hearing them whine about what’s wrong with them. I’m like, ‘Shut up! You’re lovely!'”
5. She’s grounded.
You won’t see any diva-like behavior here. “I try to lead as ordinary a life as I can,” Streep has been quoted as saying. “You can’t get spoiled if you do your own ironing.”
Perhaps it was her humble start that keeps her so down to earth. Streep waited tables in her 20s and once didn’t even have a place to sleep at night.
“On my very, very first trip to London I went around busking to earn a few pennies to afford some food and overnight accommodation,” she told Closer Magazine. “One night, when I hadn’t made enough, I actually slept in the open in Green Park under a tree. The view from the park was of the Ritz hotel, and I vowed to myself that night that I was going to stay there one day -– and I have.”
6. She has a kickass marriage.
Streep has been married over 35 years to sculptor Don Gummer, avoiding the “Oscar Curse” many times. Streep has said the key to her marriage has been communication about everything, no matter how small and to embrace your differences. “I go to the theatre a lot,” she told The Independent. “My husband doesn’t care if he never goes to the theatre but I don’t berate him because he doesn’t want to go to the theatre … we’re different.”
7. She’s embracing aging, gracefully.
Streep has had some of her most challenging and memorable roles after turning 50, though the majority of roles in Hollywood are for younger women. “The good thing about getting older is that when they actually do cast you it’s often something interesting,” Streep said in an interview with Good Housekeeping. “You have to embrace getting older. Life is precious… each day is a gift.”
Earlier this year Streep was honored at the Palm Springs International Film Festival and said, “”I feel like I’m an example now in my dotage of the fact that you just can’t put those old gals out to pasture. We’ve got a lot of stuff still to say.” You go girl!
8. She’s a feminist.
She’s no doubt played some strong female figures — Britain’s only female prime minister Margaret Thatcher in “The Iron Lady” to culinary genius Julia Child — but she still thinks women are underrepresented in Hollywood and beyond. “‘It would be nice to have a woman President. I think half the Senate should be women, half of Parliament, half the ruling mullahs” she once said. It seems she’s a big fan of Hillary Clinton too.
Streep has also been outspoken about the sexualization of women in Hollywood. Following “the period when a woman was attractive and marriageable or something—not ‘marriageable.’ F******* I guess is the word…they really didn’t know what to do with you…” She said in an interview with Vanity Fair. Streep credits her success to not being pigeonholed in the same way.
9. She’s perfectly comfortable in her own skin, and that’s what makes her a great role model.
“For young women, I would say, don’t worry so much about your weight. Girls spend way too much time thinking about that, and there are better things,” Streep said after being awarded an honorary degree earlier this year. “For young men, and women, too, what makes you different or weird, that’s your strength. Everyone tries to look a cookie-cutter kind of way, and actually the people who look different are the ones who get picked up. I used to hate my nose. Now, I don’t.”
Well, there you have it.
