2nd Look: Meryl Streep

                                                                                                             Vanity Fair
Meryl Streep won her third Academy Award last night for her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in "The Iron Lady."  She won 33   years ago for  "Kramer vs Kramer" and three years later for  "Sophie's Choice."  Upon accepting her most recent Oscar, Meryl beautifully expressed how much she cherished her husband, her makeup artist (J. Roy Helland won his first Oscar last night) and all her friends.  Her values work for us.

  1. Loved her acceptance speech, her dress and the fact that she is truly a woman just as comfortable in her "second life" as she was in her first - gorgeous, talented and VERY un-affected by all her fame and fortune. Bravo Meryl! Bravo Maryl!

    1. I agree, Karen, I thought her acceptance speech was the best that night. I have always admired her great versatility as an actress. I love that you see the characters she portrays and not "the movie star."

  2. I have such a soft spot in my heart for Meryl Streep. First, she's an amazing actress. Secondly, we are only 6 months apart in age. Finally, depending on her haircut and mine of the moment, I get comments that I look like her. Whenever I feel old and haggard, I try to channel her - and Helen Mirren.

    1. I feel especially close to Meryl too, Georgia. We grew up not too far from each other in the same state, around the same age and I just read that her full name is Mary Louise, same as me. I was also touched by how warm and close she and her husband appeared to be Oscar night. I guess I hadn't seen that before and was glad to.
