Today's the birthday of Meryl Streep
Whose acting has made us laugh and weep.
Vivacious and so versatile,
To sum her up in one word---STYLE!*
*Latest film: "August: Osage County"
*In her own words:
1. "If I am not confident that I can portray the character perfectly on the screen, I won't even try."
2. "I'm curious about other people. That's the essence of my acting. I'm interested in what it would be like to be you."
3. "Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one."
