Ariana Grande was on a TV show, and then she started her career singing. If I’m offered a TV show, I’m going to pursue that and then see if I can push my singing. And then if I push my singing, awesome. My biggest goal, though? Be an actress in movies. I would love to have a career like Meryl Streep’s someday.
I really admire actresses like Meryl Streep; I would love to have a career like hers.
There’s no such thing as too late. There are different roles for different ages, assuming an actress has something to offer. There aren’t many Helen Mirrens and Meryl Steeps, and it takes a lot of talent to get to that level. I hope I have it. That’s the model I aspire to if I’m lucky enough. It’s all about luck.
Today, people like Reese Witherspoon and Meryl Streep have vowed to improve the opportunities for women, but those promises are still unusual.
Meryl Streep is awesome.
I love Nic Cage and Meryl Streep.
‘The River Wild‘ was great, with Meryl Streep. That guy was really a bad dude who was ultimately sort of fundamentally impotent in a weird way. That was kind of interesting.
I will never be a Robert De Niro or Meryl Streep, the kind of actor that disappears into a role.
I’d like to think I could do something great – a performance like Meryl Streep’s in ‘Sophie’s Choice’ – at some point in my life. At the same time, though, I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself to be great.
Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts act themselves senseless in ‘August: Osage County,’ and by the time they’re finished, they’ve acted their movie senseless, too.
I would love to have the honor to get to work with Meryl Streep. I love her and I love her work.
You have to get out of your comfort zone in order to grow. And as an actor, you don’t become Meryl Streep by doing the same type of comedy. You get there by being challenged. And unfortunately, there’s a lack of roles for women of color, so you actually have to be the engineer creating some of those roles.
As far as actresses go, I love Meryl Streep.
I was definitely very intimidated, but the instant Meryl Streep said ‘Hi’ to me, it all went away.
I would watch anything with Meryl Streep in it.
Meryl Streep was my hero. I wanted to be that type of actor more than anything.
The ideal would be to have a career like Meryl Streep’s or Kate Winslet’s. It’s just unbelievable how they manage to make such incredible choices one after the other. If you could have a career anything like that, then that would be a great thing.
I don’t think the physical resemblance is as important as capturing the soul of the person that the actor is portraying. How much like Charlie Chaplin did Robert Downey Jr. look in ‘Chaplin?’ Did Meryl Steep actually resemble Nora Ephron in ‘Heartburn?’
I wish I could be as commanding as Meryl Streep.
As for people I would love to work with, Meryl Streep, of course! She’s my favorite.
I think that some actors who make it in Hollywood are very talented. There are some of my heroes, the Meryl Streeps of the world, a lot of people that I love their work but I think a lot of it is luck, looks, strategic alliances and relationships, your agent and a lot of business components.
Meryl Streep does things I would never have thought possible… Her presence on screen is outstanding.
It’s been hard in entertainment as a 45-year-old woman to find jobs. They get fewer and far between if you’re older, unless you’re one of the few lucky ones who work constantly, like Meryl Streep.
There’s to be a film about my life. I can give this as an exclusive now. Meryl Streep was offered the part but, no, I wanted Kate Winslet. Kylie Minogue is playing me in middle age. In old age, I’m not sure who’s going to play me. I haven‘t got there yet. Perhaps Cate Blanchett. Or Jacki Weaver.
People say to me, ‘Well, how do you direct Meryl Streep?’ You’re not wandering over to Meryl telling her how to act. She’s an extraordinary talent and unbelievably hard working; she works harder than anyone I have ever worked with before.
I love Meryl Streep.
I think a famous parent is really different from a famous grandparent. My parents are very successful, but no one knows who they are, and they live a completely grounded, homey life. I’m friends with the Gummer girls, whose mum is Meryl Streep, and that feels from the outside like a different kind of burden.
