As earlier reported, Meryl Streep has attended the Fashion Group International’s 2015 Night Of Stars event at Cipriani Wall Street in Manhattan to present Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz with the night’s Superstar Award. Lanvin has designed Meryl’s dress at the 2012 Academy Awards, when she won Best Actress for “The Iron Lady”. Pictures from the event have been added to the photo gallery. Edit: Lots of additional pictures have been posted.
Last night, Meryl Streep has attended the 22nd Annual Elle’s Women in Hollywood Awards to honor her “Suffragette” co-star Carey Mulligan. Pictures have been added to the photo gallery with additional information and quotes below.
“This is so wonderful, this whole gathering of women,” declared Meryl Streep to the female supporters seated inside the Four Seasons Beverly Hills for Elle Magazine’s annual Women in Hollywood awards on Monday night. “But I mean, you really have to admit,” the beloved actress continued, “That if they had this great big meeting once a year, and they called it ‘Men in Hollywood,’ and they had like, 17% women there – who felt besieged and awkward – and they gave a lot of awards to the men of Hollywood, we would be pissed! Oh wait,” Streep continued, summoning a premature roar of applause. “They have those meetings… every day, in every city, in every country in the world!” Streep continued the sequence of laughs when she honored her friend Carey Mulligan (who she considers to be “a teeny bit of a mystery,” and who recently gave birth to a baby girl). “I saw her on stage in ‘The Seagull,’ and she played Nina, a true innocent – an actual virgin – which is hard to play,” Streep attested to the crowd. “We’ve all tried!”
Streep then praised her costar’s work in “Suffragette,” noting, “This beauty, the beauty of her conversion, the quality of her listening, is just visceral, and it’s a function of her own thinking, accessing, feeling mind, that we witness this. I’m in awe of your talent, I really am,” Streep said. “I’m also in awe of your voice! Mine is gone, you know, but yours is like warm caramel poured over the English language!” Mulligan expressed her gratitude to Streep – who also assisted during their press tour. “It’s really helpful when you have Meryl Streep backstage at events, shouting at people on your behalf, telling them to shut the hell up, because you’ve got a nursing mother here!” she said. For Mulligan, “Suffragette” also prompted a thought. “A woman threw herself in front of the king’s horse in 1913 and changed the course of history, and no one, in 100 years, felt this was a story worthy of the big screen,” she said. “Which made me think, if this monumental moment can go undocumented, imagine how many millions of women’s stories there are for us to tell?”
Last night Streep took to the stage at Koerner Hall with the Takács Quartet to perform a series of readings from author Philip Roth’s death-obsessed 2006 novel, Everyman. It might not have been a singing voice, but it was a voice worth listening to. “It’s best to give while your hand is still warm,” Streep. Excerpts were paired with four works from composers Pärt, Britten, Shostakovich and Schubert, performed by the Takács Quartet at Streep’s side. It was a solemn, meditative evening devoted to the examination of life through death. It explored the bittersweet process of growing old and weighing the marks of life’s purpose against death’s ultimate finality. As a writer, Roth writes exceptionally well for women. The words transcended to become stories about all of us; Everyman.
On Wednesday evening, Meryl Streep joined Gloria Steinem for a Manhattan screening of Leslee Udwin’s film, “India’s Daughter. The controversial documentary – banned in India – is about the protests following the brutal gang rape of 23-year-old medical student Jyoti Singh on a moving Delhi bus in 2012. India’s Daughter will screen at the Village East Cinema from October 23-29 before its November 16 broadcast on PBS.
Hundreds of additional pictures from the BFI London Film Festival’s photocall and premiere of “Suffragette” have been added to the photo gallery, with many thanks to Lindsey for the contribution. Additionally, pictures from the taping of “The Graham Norton Show” as well as the Women in the World Summit in London have been added as well. For more information about the latter two events, check the next update.
As previously reported, “Suffragette” has opened yesterday’s BFI London Film Festival. There has been a lot of bad press towards the film (not to confuse with actual critics who have seen and enjoyed the film) and online hysteria regarding the Time Out London photoshoot, and I’m going to write more about it this weekend (or probably just ignore it), but for now, let’s celebrate the film’s premiere with pictures from the photocall, press conference and premiere. There’s more to come, so check back soon.
