She gropes through her oversized bag, finds her iPhone and checks its screen in passing. “Agent! Maybe I have a job,” she chortles. So many superlatives have been heaped upon Streep that it’s tough to separate the living legend from the flesh-and-blood woman with the lightly mussed hair jonesing for some caffeine. There’s a sparkle to Streep, 62, an innate warmth and a goofy sense of humor.|
She wears the mantle of world’s greatest living actress lightly, apologizing when her dress gets askew and flashes a bit of skin, and admiring photos of your child before sighing that “it all goes so fast, so fast.” And, she’s quick to point out, there’s not a bounty of juicy roles for even her out there. “There aren’t that many movies around, available. There aren’t that many movies written that I could do. Sometimes they’ll take a villain’s part and turn it into a woman. There aren’t a lot of parts. There aren’t a lot of serious movies,” she says. “That’s all right. I like comedies, too.” But once in a great while comes a part so multidimensional, so delicious, so revelatory as to be irresistible.
