Here’s a new addition to the magazines archive courtesy Times Live: In an industry that’s notoriously shameless in its dismissal of actresses past a certain age, Meryl Streep has managed to beat the odds and now earns up to $8-million a movie. What’s more is that she’s not done this by playing the little-seen grandmother of the younger, blonder heroine, but by commandeering hit movies and taking on a variety of challenging lead roles. Last year alone, she starred in two films that made over $90-million apiece just in the US, one of which garnered her a Golden Globe nomination and the other an Oscar nod. She’s also just signed on to play Margaret Thatcher in upcoming biopic The Iron Lady. Not a bad way to spend her 61st year.
