Meryl Streep

Meryl Streep is one of my favourite actresses and when I spotted this on Pinterest recently, it made think how  little she has changed over the years....
she has the most amazing cheekbones and such luminous skin.
I love this photo.

Oscars 2012

....with her husband of 34 years Don Gummer
"I want him to know that everything I value most in our lives you've given me." ....her words to him in her acceptance speech at the Oscars this year 

They met in 1978 when Meryl got an offer to move into the vacant apartment of her brother's friend, Don Gummer. Don was traveling in Europe, so he didn't mind if Meryl stayed. When he got back, she didn't move out, and within six months they got married. Isn't that a great story!

....her beautiful and eldest daughter, actress Mamie Gummer....

....all three of her daughters....


  1. She is very beautiful and a phenomenal actress, but something about her irks me.

  2. I saw that photograph of Meryl on Pinterest too and instantly loved it (envy her cheekbones!). Love her love story as well - so sweet and romantic! Her acceptance speech words made me tear up a little :)

  9. She IS a fantastic actress, and just stunning to boot. I love the story of how she met her husband, and WOW, what beautiful daughters! Great post.

  10. She really is gorgeous and her daughters got her genes as well. It's amazing how little she has changed. I hope I can do the same! Have great week:)

  11. What a lovely story! Somehow you just KNOW that Meryl Streep is the sort of woman who will have a nice steady history behind her - makes me want her to be one of my mates - YAY for team Streep!

  12. Oh my gosh, Simone, another reason to love you: I LOVE Meryl Streep too. Every time I see her I say to Hubby: "When I grow up..." and he finishes with: "I know, I know, you want to be just like her."
