Meryl Streep is currently promoting her new movie Suffragette in which she plays Emmeline Pankhurst, the British activist who was instrumental in earning women the right to vote. In early September, Streep sent a package to each member of Congress urging him or her to support the Equal Rights Amendment, which would… »
There are shots in many Nancy Meyers movies that tend to elicit gasps from their audiences. These shots aren’t violent or sexual, they’re just...kitchens. Perfect kitchens basked in perfect light and covered in perfect bowls of perfect fruits, all occupied by Meyers’s imperfect women.
Welcome to Midweek Madness, where we go to our normal magazine shop, head to the section with the tabloids, find last week’s issues, ask the man behind the counter when the new ones will be delivered, are told there’s a “printing problem” and they they won’t be delivered until tonight or tomorrow, leave feeling… »
After viewing the trailer for Ricki and the Flash, you’ll learn two things: 1. Meryl Streep can sing, and 2. the entire plot of Ricki and the Flash.

While watching It’s Complicated for the 10th or 11th time, I noticed something after that scene where Alec Baldwin can’t make it to a romantic dinner with his ex-wife because he’s busy trying to impregnate Lake Bell while she’s ovulating: Meryl Streep is damn good at turning off the lights.
Having recently sung in Into the Woods (and who could forget all that bed jumping in Mamma Mia?), it was only a matter of time before Meryl Streep would expand her vocal chops.

Brendan Gleeson delivering a misogynist rant + Meryl Streep firmly whispering “ Never surrender. Never give up the fight” in a fake British accent + Carey Mulligan scurrying around and looking worried in early 20th century garb = we’re going to Suffragette for Jezebel Movie night! »
The 20 stars nominated for Academy Awards this year represent some of the most talented (or, anyway, famous) actors on screen today.

Jessica Chastain and Meryl Streep have both responded to Mystery, Alaska actor Russell Crowe's recent comments regarding actresses refusing to act their age in Hollywood.

Appearing on Live! with Kelly and Michael Wednesday morning to promote Into the Woods, Meryl Streep revealed that her Thanksgiving was chock full of excitement: her oven apparently "does not do it" so on this holiday, since she lives in the same building in New York City as Gwyneth Paltrow, Meryl popped over to use… »
