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. Being the international household name that she is, it’s easy to forget just what an achievement her continued success really is. As it stands, Streep is peerless. Her 16 Oscar nominations are as yet unmatched by any other actor and her position as the only actress over 50, let alone 60, who can open a movie on the power of her name alone is unrivalled. Streep has said herself that the US doesn’t reward people of her age. But, why is this? What happened to all the other women who she was at a level pegging with back in the day? You can read the complete article in the magazines archive.
