In addition, Meryl, you can add and the number of stellar record for the strength of family ties – she is married for 36 years and has four children. But perhaps the main achievement of outstanding actress is that her age does not prevent any creativity or for the image.

 
 
Mary Louise Streep (Mary Louise Streep) was born on June 22, 1949 in Summit (NJ). Her father, a pharmacist Harry Streep, and his wife, the artist Mary, at the time of birth of a daughter was no longer very young, and as the actress said later, did not plan to have children; however, soon appeared in the family of two boys. Mary, or Meryl, as she preferred to be called, was a happy child, prone antics and jokes. The girl felt herself ugly and fat, she had poor eyesight and uneven teeth, but she gladly wore comic image and even drew himself wrinkles using my mother’s pencils. However, in 12 years Meryl flashed at a school concert, singing Christmas carols and vocal teacher even became involved with it for free. In the 15 years girl hair dyed in bright colors, with teeth braces removed, started wearing contact lenses and has become a recognized school beauty (although secretly continued to consider themselves too fat and long-nosed). After high school, Meryl began to study drama at the famous Vassar College, where in 1971 received a bachelor’s degree, and then continued her studies at the Faculty of Dramatic Arts at the University of Yale. Girl earned sewing and costume design, participated in student productions, brilliantly performed the role and beauties, and deep old women. She was considered one of the most talented students and even appealed to the psychologist about the hostile relations with classmates jealous of her success. In 1975, Meryl Streep received a Master of Arts, and has been recommended by teachers to take part in Broadway productions.
Meryl Streep’s debut on the stage can be called brilliant. She played in numerous performances and participated in the New York Shakespeare Festival. In 1976, at the rehearsals of the play ‘Measure for Measure’, Meryl met with the famous actor John Casale. John was older than 13 years old, ugly, and also married, however, have arisen between them deep feelings. Despite the fact that Meryl thought their appearance unsuitable for the screen, Casale brought her to the casting of the film ‘King Kong’. However, the director Di Laurentiis Italian actress grossly insulted. Meryl also in Italian, restrained told him, but then Casale cost great difficulty to persuade her to yet another attempt. Streep in the movie debut was the film ‘Julie’, where her partner and mentor was the famous Jane Fonda. By this time Casale found a cancer, but he took part in the filming of ‘The Deer Hunter’. In order not to part with her lover, Meryl also starred in this film. ‘The Deer Hunter’ has received five Oscar, Meryl Streep was nominated for Best Supporting Actress and caused delight critics. After that, she starred in the miniseries ‘Holocaust’, for which he received Emmy, but the joy of victory was marred by the death of Casale immediately after the shooting. Casale wife kicked an opponent out of his apartment, and friends helped Meryl settle in temporarily vacant sculptor Donald Gummer. On his return from a trip ahead of time Gammer was very surprised by the presence of a stranger, but six months later, in the autumn of 1978, held their wedding. Marriage was for Meryl best antidepressant and an incentive to work – in 1979, she filmed a lot, received Oscar and Golden Globe for the film ‘Kramer vs. Kramer’ – despite the fact that in November this year, the actress had a son, Henry Wolf, now known author and performer of songs. Following the success of the star was already recognized the role of Sophie in ‘The French Lieutenant’s Woman “(1981), estimated Golden Globe Award and a BAFTA. Another great success was the reincarnation of a brilliant Meryl Streep in the role of the Polish emigrant ‘Sophie’s Choice’ (1982), which earned Golden Globe and a statuette ‘Oscar’. In August 1983, at Meryl daughter Mary Villa, now a popular television actress.
After the burst of popularity Meryl Streep followed a slight decline in the early 90s. Her movies repeatedly nominated for the prestigious award, enjoyed box office success, critics admired the skill of the actress, but to reach the heights of her past have failed. Breakthrough was the cult film “The Devil Wears Prada” (2006), which brought another actress Golden Globe. For the execution of the role of chief editor Pod ium ‘Miranda Priestly, which served as the prototype for the editor of’ Vogue ‘Anna Wintour, Meryl Streep lost 8 pounds and was wearing a wig. This role is called the core of the film and the screen image of Miranda to the present time is the standard business elegance. New faces revealed the talent of the actress in the musical ‘Mamma Mia’ (2008), in which she performed stunts and sang for the first time on the screen. Mixed reactions and a collection of awards (Oscar, Golden Globe ‘, BAFTA, and other bonuses) actress brought the role in the film about Margaret Thatcher (“The Iron Lady, 2012). To date, Meryl Streep continues to be removed, and its plans for 2014 appear two more projects – it is possible that the movie star will soon be seen again on the red carpet. The actress claims that never did and does not intend to do plastic surgery, although still can complain aloud: ‘And yet I have longish nose!’

Her father was an employee of a pharmaceutical company Harry Streep, mother’s name was Mary; being an artist, most of her time she devoted care of her husband and three children.
Meryl ancient ancestors were Spanish Jews who had emigrated to Holland in the fifteenth century. Once in the new country, they do not know the language, began to sign the dash, hence the name – Strip.

The school Meryl constantly amused classmates, parodying the teachers; When she was 12 years old, her parents were invited to her singing teacher. Even then beckoned her artistic career, which for Mary Louise, 15 years renamed themselves Meryl began on the stage of Vassar College, after which she won a three-year scholarship to study at drama school at Yale University. During this time, on stage at Yale Repertory Theatre has played more than forty roles. Along with learning Meryl worked in the summer theater costume designer. And after graduating from university in 1975, she became a certified expert in Fine Arts, received the title of Master of Fine Arts. Then she decided to start a professional in the movies and play in the theater.

Meryl moved to New York, where she was waiting for a career on Broadway. Debutante with success: the heroine of Shakespeare, Arthur Miller and Tennessee Williams, played by Meryl Streep and liked the audience and critics. For his role in “Twenty-seven cars cotton” T. Williams, she was nominated for the highest theatrical award America “Tony”.

In the movie, where Streep came after several years of work in one of the best theaters in New York, headed by Joseph Papp, debutante not had much luck. Already well-known actress, who plays of Shakespeare, Strindberg, Williams commissioned a small part of a society lady in “Julia” F. Zinnemann (1977). But in the process of installation of almost all the shots with her participation was cut. However, subsequent work, mainly, the heroine of the second plan – immediately attracted the attention of connoisseurs of true art. This figure – National Society of Film Critics Awards “Best Supporting Actress” in “The Deer Hunter” (1978), the highest television award “Emmy” for participation in the movie “The Holocaust” (1978) and the award of the New York critics for “The Seduction of Joe Taino “(1979).

In just two years the Strip has become one of the most famous actresses in Hollywood and got her first “Oscar” – for the film “Kramer vs. Kramer”. Soon almost every movie with her participation becomes an event cinema.

At the end of the 80s changed roles Streep, started playing comedic roles, but also dramatic roles have not been forgotten.

Whatever differed played its role, they are usually seen leading theme of creativity of the actress: upholding human dignity, women’s independence, the right to the love of their choice. Her heroine, to what age and country, they would belong to, it is in tune with our times, when the feminist movement in the West is becoming more widespread.
In this case, neither of which the scheme is not out of the question, because the characters Strip – real women whose independence is not ruining lyricism, as cold and calculating can be combined with generous impulses to their own detriment. This multidimensional makes them alive, warm, humane.

In the late ’90s in the saturated film career Strip begins a short break that, to the great joy of the actress, allows her to immerse your head in the family chores and come back to the stage. In 2001, she successfully played in New York Arkadina in Chekhov’s “The Seagull” (statement M.Nikolsa).

In addition, Meryl Streep is actively involved in community activities. Previously, she fought against the nuclear arms race, and now – to lead the movement for reducing the amount of nitrates in food. Meryl also do charity: it is actively cooperating with the funds, raise money for the fight against AIDS, helping sick children. Talented actress always remember their duty to the people.

During the filming of the “Holocaust” actress experienced personal drama. More on the stage, she met actor John Keyzale, they began an affair. Doctors found Keyzale bone marrow cancer, every day his condition worsened. Meryl wanted only one thing – to stay close to the end of the beloved and help him in all things, but fate decreed otherwise. By that time, Streep contract was signed for the shooting, she was shot in Austria. John Keyzale died a few days after her return to New York, March 12, 1978.
Survive the grief helped Meryl meeting with the sculptor Don Gummer – they were married Sept. 15, 1978; live together and to this day and has four children.
