A couple of magazine scans have been added to the image library, some of them from earlier this year during the “August: Osage County” promotion and two new ones. The People Magazine edition of August has a first look at “Into the Woods”. And Empire Magazine’s September issue has a feature on the Blu-Ray release of “Sophie’s Choice”. Many thanks to Simona, Claudia and Ali for the scans. Also, with thanks to Lindsey, the “Into the Woods” production stills have been replaced with HQ versions.

The magazines archive has been re-organized these past days to make it easier to access and browse. Over the years, hundreds of magazines have been obtained – some have been transcripted, other can be found in the image library. Now, both collections have been merged to give a comprehensive list of articles. Also, since many visitors come from around the world and many articles have been posted in foreign languages, there’s a new compilation of international magazines. Simply click the country of your destiny to find all articles available in your language. You will be surprised how much has been collected. My most sincere thanks to all the visitors who have contributed their collections and rare finds, most especially Alvaro, who has sent in most of the scans you’re able to read on Simply Streep. If you have collected articles that are not featured yet, why not drop me a line and help make this list even more comprehensible.

Additionally to the new magazines archive, some 100 new scans have been added to the image library. Some are re-added, because I’m sure they had been posted on here before. Simply browse the last updated albums for a complete list. Enjoy reading.

Three new magazines have been added to the image library – Ciak (Italy, February 2014), Madame Figaro (France, February 14, 2014) and MyWay Magazine (Germany, April 2014). Many thanks to Alvaro for scanning the first two magazines and to myself for the German one :-) Enjoy reading.

Two new magazine scans have been added to the gallery. Many thanks to Luciana for sending in scans from the March issue of Vanity Fair, boasting some fantastic celebrity portraits, including this 1981 shot by Annie Leibovitz (which I haven’t seen in this pose before). Then, with many thanks to Simona, scans from the Italian Cosi Magazine (January 2014) have been added as well. Enjoy.

Here comes another fantastic addition to the archives with many thanks to Simona. The Italian Il Venerdi di Repubblica featured a cover story and nine page article on Meryl in January 1989 to promote the release of “A Cry in the Dark”, featuring some great full page images. Have a look at the scans in the image library.


Many thanks to Claudia for sending in Meryl’s Best Actress bit from the latest Entertainment Weekly. “Working with Streep can be intense. Julianne Nicholson recalls a small scene where she sits in the backseat of a car beside Streep and Julia Roberts. “We’re sort of chatting a little bit, and all of a sudden we’re rolling and Meryl starts acting,” says Nicholson. “The whole car just felt full of feeling, and it was suffocating in the best way. It was so real. If you were sitting in that car, I would dare you not to cry.”

A real treat has been added to the gallery – one of the first major articles on Meryl’s career by the New York Times Magazine, dated February 4, 1979. This has been just after the release of “The Deer Hunter”, for which Meryl received her first ever Oscar nomination, and still almost a year ahead of the theatrical release of “Kramer vs. Kramer”. The scans have been submitted by Alvaro with many many thanks!

Additionally to the scans, transcripts from older articles have been added to the magazines archive as well. They range from as early as 1976, covering Meryl’s rise on the New York stages, to 1998 and the release of “One True Thing”. My thanks to Paul for contributing them. Enjoy reading.
