Meryl + Tina

Major fangirl crushing. Last night in New York at the premiere of Meryl’s latest It’s Complicated, Tina showed up to support her co-star Alec Baldwin, of course, but there’s no doubt a lot of respect for La Streep too. After all, aside from her obvious CAPABILITIES, Meryl Streep, now 60, has had a run of box office dominance that’s been remarkable, especially considering this is an industry that ordinarily favours and celebrates youth above all. Full Story

In other words, as we all know already, she’s perfect. And at 60 years old, Meryl Streep is on the cover of Vanity Fair closing out yet another triumphant year in which she delivered yet another sure-to-be-nominated performance in Julie & Julia with commercial and critical success and followed that up by playing the romantic female lead in a new comedy It’s Complicated due out this month. Full Story

Hearing Meryl Streep

After my post on An Evening With Meryl Streep at the ROM many of you asked if there was video. This was the interview with Johanna Schneller during which Streep offered many, many memorable insights including the one about being “capable”. Full Story

Meryl works in Rome

I was told of a Meryl Streep encounter recently where she was approached by a fan at a café while she was enjoying time with friends and asked for a photo, at which point she very graciously declined and said “I’m sorry, I’m not working right now”. Unlike the modern lot of twats that run that town, Meryl has kept that separation very clear. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Am still buzzing from the Meryl Streep/Johanna Schneller night of girl worship at the Royal Ontario Museum on Wednesday night. And here are some photos from the event courtesy of the ROM. You’ll note the face. A face that’s been allowed to age on its own, without interference. Streep said it herself, of Botox, and of course her 4 words succinctly sum it up for everyone.

“It interrupts the energy.”


Small details keep coming back to me from the evening. Like what she refers to as “My Mythology”, the Meryl Streep reputation, the preparation, the accents, the character submersion…

She, in that way of hers, almost brushes this off too. The best technique, really, according to Meryl Streep, is to simply show up. And when magic happens it’s when you show up as a “blank slate”. This is why Madonna can’t act, see? Madonna overthinks it and can’t let go of it.

The Vanity Fair Portraits exhibit at the ROM runs until January 3rd. You’ll love it. I’m going again in November.

Friday – am back in Vancouver, Twilight exclusives coming up, and the most egregious case of Photoshop f-ckery maybe ever.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING CANADA!!!!!!!!!!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. I was rushing out of a meeting and checked my Blackberry on Wednesday. 2 minutes later, somehow my trainer Hayley managed to secure my commitment to participating in the Turkey Trot on Monday. The Turkey Trot supports the Vancouver Food Bank. See you there?

An Evening with Meryl Streep

Lainey Posted by Lainey at October 8, 2009 09:05:00 October 8, 2009 09:05:00

Last night at the Royal Ontario Museum, in celebration of the ROM’s Vanity Fair Portraits exhibit, Meryl Streep took the stage with Johanna Schneller to discuss “The Question of Celebrity”. 90 minutes of full-on girlcrush. WORSHIP. I met up with 2 friends afterwards and this is how Gabrielle explained it: What are you great at? The one thing you do that is better than anything else you do? Think about what it is and then know this – it’s still not as good as Meryl Streep’s acting. Full Story

Meryl

That f-cking Shelf Ass had the temerity to put herself in the same sentence with Meryl Streep in an interview. Meryl Streep is too classy to care. But to quote Valentino: I would eat them! Meryl was in LA last night with Amy Adams for the premiere of Julie & Julia in which she plays Julia Child, with the accent and the quirky mannerisms, a third summer in a row that she’s featured at the box office, and that’s Meryl Streep – just turned 60 and, as she’s said recently, suddenly a box office draw. Full Story

Shelfy compares herself to Meryl and Cate

She did. I know. My blood is boiling too. Shelf Ass Jessica Biel sat town with the LA Times to promote her gig at the Hollywood Bowl – she’s performing in Guys & Dolls and everyone involved in the production has been raving about her “silvery” voice, her range, her pipes. Full Story

Oscar Kate!

So now she has one. How 'bout that whistle from her dad? She was asked in the press room about the criticism she's received from stoic Brits about the emotion she's gushed throughout the course of the season. Her response? I don't give a sh-t. If they can't be happy for one of their own then f-ck 'em. Full Story

BAFTA Blasé: Meryl Streep

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 9, 2009 05:20:11 February 9, 2009 05:20:11

She doesn’t have to. So she doesn’t. But she respects the occasion too even though this outfit is probably 20 years old and recycled from an awards show during the (to borrow from her speech at the Globes for her Adaptation win) Pleistocene era. Meryl Streep at the BAFTAs in sharp contrast to the other mature ladies of the night – Sharon Stone and Goldie Hawn – demonstrated another option for women who are no longer 22. Full Story

SAG Ladies and Ralph: Meryl, Susan, Kristin

Awards season means the likes of Lauren Conrad are shoved to the side…have you noticed? It’s time for real stars, real celebrity, so f-ck off reality twats because Meryl Streep has just won a SAG. Wearing a pantsuit. Heh. Love that Meryl is never super appreciative. That she doesn’t have to be. Full Story
