When it comes to movie actresses, Meryl Streep might be the G.O.A.T. Every movie she touches turns into award bait. She transforms into any number of characters in a wide variety of films. Many are serious, some are not, but all are performances thoughtfully and precisely given.
This quote from a 2008 profile of Streep in The Observer (about her role in The Devil Wears Prada) is a good example of what we are talking about here:
Though Streep is in many ways an anti-celebrity, one of those actresses who disappears into a role leaving little trace of herself, the role of Priestly none the less shifted perceptions of her. The notion that there was warmth and a beating heart under the porcelain exterior extended beyond the character to the intensely private Streep. The critics loved it and, a little more unusually, so did the public.”
You get the picture. The woman is revered.
Without further ado, I present to you a picture of Meryl Streep, posing as a “gangster,” with 50 Cent and Kobe Bryant.
It’s not like you needed another reminder that nothing, literally nothing, should surprise you on the internet, but there you go.
