It’s my great pleasure to announce a new section to Simply Streep – the Fan Sightings. Over the years, many fans and visitors of Simply Streep were fortunate to meet Meryl Streep at events, such as film festivals and premieres. So I have created a new section to collect those stories. You can already read two stories online – one by Simona, who met Meryl at the 2009 Rome International Film Festival, and one by Miri, who met Meryl last November in Beijing at the US-China Forum on the Arts and Culture. If you have met Meryl and would like to share your story, feel free to drop me a line and I’ll feature your story as well. You’re welcome to include pictures or memorabilia to share with the visitors. If there are more questions, feel free to ask :-) And now, enjoy the stories.

We learned that Meryl would come to China about a month ago. At the first, we didn’t have such wild hope on the whole thing as the Forum is sort of an official activity. But one of us fans said that this may be an “once-in-life” thing… read the complete story.

I left home on 21st October night I only had a ticket for ‘Julie&Julia’ screening. It was the only ticket I managed to buy. Anyone sane in mind wouldn’t have taken a ticket to watch a movie 703 kms far from home, but I was well-intentioned to see Meryl… read the complete story.

    Hi. I would like to know how I can get in touch with Miri. I met her in Beijing at the National Center for the Performing Arts. I am from the Philippines and I went to Beijing just to see Meryl. I just want to send her a message to tell her how happy I am for them that they were able to talk to and shake hands with Meryl.

    Thank you.

    Thanks so much for this segment!! It is such fun reading about fans meeting Meryl, and for those of us who will probably never do so, it gives us reason to dream:-)

    These stories are amazing. They make you believe that someday our dream of meeting meryl in person can come true. They also let you know that Meryl is a wonderful person in real life, as she is in every single movie of her. I congratulate all the fans that meet her in person, I envy you!! I just hope that someday Meryl can discover that there people who love her, here in the south of the world.
    Best wishes from Chile!
