Meryl Streep is a dead ringer for former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher on the cover of the new issue of Newsweek, out this week, as Entertainment Tonight has the first look. The new issue of the magazine delves into the British political powerhouse’s rise through the ranks. Streep plays Thatcher in the new biopic The Iron Lady, and the Oscar winner tells Newsweek, “While we were making the film, people had such strong and particular and specific venom for her. It was sort of stunning”. Edit: A similar cover is used for the Spanish XL Semanal magazine (read article), with thanks to Alvaro for the heads-up.
