Once again, I’ve digged deep down the archives to bring some rare finds to Simply Streep. The highlight of this post is probably Meryl’s first television interview in 1979 to promote “Kramer vs. Kramer”. Bits from this interview were featured on the Today Show, now a seven-minute version has been added to the video archive. Also new is footage from the Mann’s Chinese Theatre Handprints ceremony, the premieres for “The River Wild” and “The Bridges of Madison County” and a newly discovered press junket interview for “Music of the Heart”. Click the previews for all new clips and scroll down for screencaptures.

The new issue of Empire has a fresh look at Meryl Streep in Rob Marshall’s film adaptation of Into The Woods. This still comes from the scene, glimpsed in the trailer, where Streep bursts in on the baker and his wife – wait, does that make no sense as a pairing to anyone else?). They wished to have children, but a curse was laid on the baker’s father by the witch decades before, and the only way she’s willing to lift it is if they find her four ingredients for a potion. Cue a quest that brings them into conflict with other fairytale characters, some of them rather different to how you remember.

A new batch of production and promotional stills as well as on-set pictures of Meryl’s films have been added to the image library. Updates range from 1979 to 1986 and include “The Seduction of Joe Tynan”, “Kramer vs. Kramer”, “Sophie’s Choice”, “Plenty” and “Heartburn”.

Yesterday, Meryl has attended the New York premiere for “The Giver”, joining co-stars Jeff Bridges, Katie Holmes and Brenton Thwaites on the red carpet. With many thanks to Lindsey, 130 high quality pictures have been added to the image library. More to come. Earlier today, Meryl has been a guest on the Today Show, so check back later for a video and screencaptures.


While sorting things for the site, I’ve realised that most of the screencaptures of Meryl’s television appearances throughout the years have never been added to the new image library back when I moved all images. So, over 2.000 screencaptures have been re-added, ranging from the early 1980s to 2009, when screencaptures have been up to date again. For a complete overview of all added captures, have a look at the previews below and enjoy your trip down the memory lane.
