This week’s #BORNATDAWNMUSE is actress Meryl Streep. She was born in 1949 in New Jersey to her mother Mary, a commercial artist and art editor and father Harry, a pharmaceutical executive.
Highly educated, she appeared in several school and college plays before receiving a Master of Fine Arts from the Yale School of Drama. She supplemented course fees by waitressing, typing and featuring in over 12 productions a year, developing ulcers from overwork.
Moving to NYC in 1975, she appeared in numerous Broadway productions and made her debut film role aged 28 opposite Jane Fonda in 1977’s ‘Julia’, Her breakthrough role was in 1978’s ‘The Deer Hunter’, widely exposing her talents and earning her first Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination.
She rose to stardom in the 1980’s and became a Hollywood superstar in the decades to come, playing extraordinary women in notable films including The Devil Wears Prada and The Post. Her career success is unsurpassable; with 156 awards won to date for her artistic and technical abilities and a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2017 Golden Globes.
Meryl lived with the actor John Cazale for 3 years until his death in March 1978. She is married to sculptor Don Gummer and they have 4 children - musician Henry, actresses Mamie and Grace and model Louisa. She lives in Connecticut.
The actress professes to know nothing about fashion but has a timeless elegance, and is always impactful on the red carpet. She favours draped gowns and sharp tailoring in a neutral palette. At the 2018 Oscars she wore a vibrant scarlet Christian Dior dress.
Meryl is known for her powerful and highly political speeches. She is an advocate for the Time’s Up movement and the spokesperson, and a major donator, for the National Women's History Museum. In April 2015 she funded the Writers Lab, for female screenwriters over 40.
Meryl Streep is our greatest living actress. She epitomises female empowerment and assiduousness and has a prevailing sense of style and elegance. At the 2018 Academy Awards, Frances McDormand called all females nominees to stand, shouting, “Meryl, if you do it, everybody else will!”. Of course, they did.
