Meryl has been a steady visitor to Tina Brown’s Women in the World Summit ever since its inauguration and 2016 marks no difference. Today, she has taken the stage to talk about how far women have come in history and why they will no longer be marginalized. A first excerpt of her speech can be found on Youtube. Pictures have been added to the photo gallery with more information to come.
Last night, New York City’s Webster Hall hosted an all-star fundraiser for legendary keyboardist Bernie Worrell, who is battling cancer. The “All The Woo In The World” show featured over four hours of funk. Worrell himself was on hand as was famed actress Meryl Streep and director Jonathan Demme. Pictures from the benefit have been added to the photo gallery. Next week will bring us the British promotion for “Florence Foster Jenkins”, for which Meryl will be a guest on The Graham Norton Show (airing next Friday, April 15).
A couple of new production stills for the upcoming “Florence Foster Jenkins” have been added to the photo gallery. There’s also news on public appearances this April. The London premiere will take place on April 12, and on April 13 Meryl Streep and Simon Helberg will attend a Q&A hosted by Telegraph Film Critic, Robbie Collin, including an exclusive preview screening of Florence Foster Jenkins at the Curzon Mayfair, 3 weeks before the film is released in cinemas on 6th May. Also this Monday, Meryl will attend the “All the Woo in the World” benefit in New York City to celebrate Legendary Parliament-Funkadelic keyboardist Bernie Worrell. As you can see, there’s a lot to look forward to this April!
A whopping ten magazine coverages have been added for this week’s Scan Sunday. All articles cover “Out of Africa” and include reports from the set, and interviews with Meryl Streep and Robert Redford. Eight cover stories from the United States, Canada, Belgium and France are featured with some great new pictures (and have a look at France’s Confidence cover, that’s how Photoshop looked in 1986). Many thanks to Fred and Alvaro for their contributions. To launch all latest scans, click any of the previews below. And if you don’t know what to watch over this long Easter weekend, give “Out of Africa” a go.

In this week’s Scan Sunday we circle around the Netherlands, Belgium and France and then wide away to the United States with four great cover stories. Articles range from 1979 to 1997 and give a great spotlight on Meryl’s television work in “Holocaust” and “First Do No Harm”. There are also two articles from 1983 on her recent Oscar win for “Sophie’s Choice”. Many thanks to Fred and Alvaro for their contributions. If you’d like to have scans from a specific country being featured next week, just drop a line in the comments section.
This week’s Scan Sunday brings four great cover story from European magazines – Italy’s Superflash from 1988, France’s Voici from 1989, Germany’s Frau im Spiegel from 1994 (a special report on the story behind Out of Africa, featuring many rare pictures of Karen Blixen and Denys Fynch Hatton) and Belgium’s Teleknack. Many thanks to Fred and Alvaro for their contributions. Click any of the previews below to launch the new scans and enjoy reading.
Today, the full trailer for the UK release of “Florence Foster Jenkins” has been launched, featuring lots of new scenes, but still no hint at Jenkins’ infamous voice. I’m wondering if it’s just kept for further promotion or if we have to wait to “witness it in the theatre”. The trailer can be found in the video archive with screencaptures being added to the photo gallery.
In case you have ever wondered, like me, if Simply Streep has found every magazine that has ever run an article on Meryl Streep, you’re wrong. Some time last year a fan from Canada, Fred Meandro, contacted me, offering a large collection of covers and articles (those kinds of emails you just wish to happen). With the help of my friend and fellow contributor Alvaro, we’ve been able to get hold of a massive collection of very rare articles and cover stories which has been sorted and digitized. This collection is too precious to just put it out in one update, so why not turn it into a new feature? Every Sunday from now on, a couple of those new magazine scans will be posted here for your reading pleasure. Let’s start with four magazines from the United States, Italy, Germany and Belgium. Many thanks to Alvaro for his wonderful support on these new finds.
