Meryl Streep: Hollywood’s Latest Superhero – “Courageous Captain Character”
Holy cow! Who knew Meryl was such a badass?
She’s officially my new favorite superhero! (Sorry, Wonder Woman.)
Sure, I know that she stood up to Dustin Hoffman when he was smothering her in their “Kramer vs. Kramer” marriage. That had to take some cojones. I know, too, that she showed that she was a take-no-prisoners type of female chieftain at her “The Devil Wears Prada” editorial job. Not a boss I would exactly relish. And that she held fast to her “the dingo did it” defense in “A Cry in the Dark.” And, for that, she’s to be commended.
But I mean, this latest statement from her blows all of that other stuff away!
Is it true or a hoax? I don’t know, but I’m going with “true” if for no other reason than I really want it to be so.
I love her points on not adjusting to popular gossiping, believing in a world of opposites, loyalty in friendship, losing the will to please those who do not return the favor, and I’m sure I would wholeheartedly agree with her stance on not tolerating “selective erudition” if I actually knew what that meant.
I’ve loved Meryl forever. My eyes are drawn to her at award shows. She captivates me. She’s always quick with a smile, always in attendance with her long-term husband or a beloved child, and always a good-natured participant in the gag of the moment.
Now, with this newest piece of insight, I only have a reason to love her a whole lot more.
