Mary Louise Streep, widely known as Meryl Streep, was born on June 22, 1949 in Summit, New Jersey, U.S.. She made her stage debut in 1971 with Playboy of Seville. For her performance in the 1976 play A Memory of Two Mondays/27 Wagons Full of Cotton, she earned a Tony nomination for Best Featured Actress in a Play. The following year, she made her screen debut with the TV movie The Deadliest Season.
In 1978, she gained critical praise for her role in the miniseries Holocaust and in the film The Deer Hunter, for which she earned her first Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress. She went on to bring best performances in such films as Out of Africa, The Bridges of Madison County, Adaptation, and many others. Award-winning performances include 1979’s Kramer vs. Kramer, winning the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress and 1982’s Sophie’s Choice and 2011’s The Iron Lady, which both earned her an Oscar for Best Actress.
Has Meryl Streep had Plastic Surgery?
Meryl Streep is legendary for having more Oscar nominations than any other actors or actresses in the history of cinema. Being in the industry for decades, Streep is certainly a household name despite massive additions of new actresses in Hollywood. As she ages (she’s 65), some begin to wonder if someone like Meryl Streep could have gone to such extreme measures as plastic surgery to hide the signs of aging.
In an interview, the actress has expressed her stance on plastic surgery to which she stated that she considers aging as a gift instead of a dilemma, in contrast with other aging stars. This, of course, signifies her dislike of plastic surgery as a supposed-to-be solution to aging. She said in 2010: “To each his own. I really understand the chagrin that accompanies ageing, especially for a woman, but I think people look funny when they freeze their faces.”
