Happy Meryl Streep Day!

Stars

As some of you may know, my passion for cinema began with Meryl Streep. Not only is she my favorite actress in the whole world (like many other people out there), she is also one of the people who have inspired me the most in my entire life (and as a bonus, I’ve met her twice). Today, May 27 (actually, as I write this it’s not May 27 anymore in most parts of Europe, but it is in Los Angeles), is Meryl Streep Day! How many actors do you know have their own official day? But, of course, Meryl is not like most actors… she’s Meryl Streep!

To celebrate Meryl Streep Day, I’m going to choose 100 facts about Meryl Streep everyone should know (I have to admit, listing only 100 was extremely difficult and I’ve left so many things out)!

Wishful Drinking: Carrie Fisher’s self-portrait

Reviews

I guess it would be possible to think I’m not going to talk about cinema (which is basically, in case you haven’t noticed, the main reason I created this blog, right?) since Wishful Drinking was originally a one-woman play, that was turned into a book and was finally adapted for television (and released on DVD). But anyway, since Carrie Fisher is an actress (who happened to star as Princess Leia in a film you may have heard about called Star Wars) I have an excuse to write about Wishful Drinking.
