Added a video transcript, as well as screencaptures, of Meryl’s appearance on The Early Show.

She likes to eat. She likes learning to cook.  Two-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep said on “The Early Show” Wednesday she has some things in common with her character in her new film, “Julie & Julia”. In fact, Streep said she didn’t have to pretend anything when she played legendary television cook Julia Child. But she wasn’t actually playing an historical portrayal of Child, Streep explained.  “I’m a fantasy Julia Child. That was my out, anyway. I didn’t have to be absolutely dead-on.” “Early Show” co-anchor Harry Smith commented on Streep’s ability to rake in summer movie profits with movies, such as “The Devil Wears Prada” and “Mamma Mia!,” comparing her to Will Smith and his box office bonanzas.  “Go figure. It’s so alarming,” Streep joked. “What’s happening to the world?” Streep added, “It’s bizarre, but it’s a happy surprise.” Smith said she may even be asked to do car crashes and helicopters next. “That’s how it starts,” he said. Streep responded, “Oh, I don’t think they’re going to get me in the cat suit. I would pay to avoid that.”

The actress and the director recently gave the Wall Street Journal an interview that can be read in the magazines archive. Punctuating their conversation with raucous laughter, Ms. Streep and Ms. Ephron spoke about towering women – Ms. Streep wore platform shoes in the film – and facing off against fanboys at the box office. The movie “Julie & Julia” intertwines the stories of two women – Julia Child discovering her love of cooking and blogger Julie Powell cooking her way though Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking.” The film’s star, Meryl Streep, and its writer and director, Nora Ephron, play off their links, too. They came to know each other through their friendships with director Mike Nichols and worked together on “Silkwood” (1983) and “Heartburn” (1986). Ms. Streep shot to the top of Ms. Ephron’s casting list when they ran into each other at a Shakespeare performance in New York’s Central Park: Ms. Ephron, who is also a producer on the movie, mentioned the project and Ms. Streep warbled, “Bon Appetit!”
