Dear Gossips,

Have you seen the Meryl Streep tribute at the Kennedy Centre Honours? Meryl Streep is so great that her acting eclipsed her looks. Watching that old footage, itΓÇÖs almost surprising how beautiful she is. Because, frankly, when sheΓÇÖs working, itΓÇÖs the last thing you notice. Remarkable, isnΓÇÖt it? Tell that to Jessica Biel who has, on several occasions, moaned about how her beauty is a burden to her (imagined) talent.

Robert DeNiro, a previous Kennedy Centre Honouree, was one of several celebrities who spoke during the Streep dedication. I kept thinking to myself...

But WHY ARE YOU IN NEW YEARΓÇÖs EVE? It occurred to me that Meryl doesnΓÇÖt make movies like New YearΓÇÖs Eve, throwaway movies where the paycheque is the only priority. One of you smartasses is about to cite The Devil Wears Prada. Please. She was nominated for an Oscar in The Devil Wears Prada. I promise you DeNiro will not be receiving an Oscar nomination for New YearΓÇÖs Eve. And besides, The Devil Wears Prada was actually a pretty good movie. My favourite Meryl Streep movie is Kramer vs Kramer. Probably not a unique sentiment for those who grew up in divorce.

The video is below. We will talk about Anne Hathaway later.

More than 8 of you cared about the Original Supermodels and Karen Mulder! You know theyΓÇÖd probably consider Yasmeen Ghauri ΓÇ£too big in certain placesΓÇ¥ for the runway now...?

Yours in gossip,

Lainey
