Before these get forgotten as “something from last year”, quality scans from the January 2012 issue of the American Vogue have been added to the image library. Enjoy!

This will be the last update for this year (with the exception of the “Year in Review 2011″, coming next week) and I’ve made sure you’ll have plenty to watch, read and listen to for the Holidays. First, Meryl’s appearance on “The View” can be watched in the video archive.

She attended the show yesterday alongside director Phyllida Lloyd, dishing on “The Iron Lady”, her early years at Dartmouth college and visiting the White House for the Kennedy Center Honors. Additionally to the video, HD captures have been added to the gallery.

Then, new magazine scans have been added to the gallery, with many thanks to Alvaro. Transcripts can be found in the magazines archive as well, including articles from Sunday Times Culture, The Inquirer, MacLeans’, USA Today, The Los Angeles Times and The New York Times. A list of all new scans can be found below the previews.

Finally, I would like to wish all visitors of Simply Streep a Merry Christmas and some wonderful Holidays with your family, friends and beloved ones. It’s been a great year to keep Simply Streep updated and I’m looking forward to all the news and things to happen in 2012. Have a great time and take care everybody! Frederik.

A batch of new magazine scans have been added to the gallery. First, scans from the most recent cover stories in Newsweek and the Spanish XL Semanal (as previously reported). Then, with thanks to Elmira, scans from the December issue of the Italian TU Style Magazine as well as from the July 2011 issue of Story Magazine (looks like a Russian version of Biography). And with thanks to Simona a 1986 article from the Italian La Domenica Magazine, covering the release of “Out of Africa”. Thanks everybody for contributing, enjoy reading!

Article courtesy USA Today: There’s a cellphone ringing in the swanky Waldorf-Astoria suite where Meryl Streep is sitting on the sofa, sipping coffee. She gropes through her oversized bag, finds her iPhone and checks its screen in passing. “Agent! Maybe I have a job,” she chortles. So many superlatives have been heaped upon Streep that it’s tough to separate the living legend from the flesh-and-blood woman with the lightly mussed hair jonesing for some caffeine. There’s a sparkle to Streep, 62, an innate warmth and a goofy sense of humor.

She wears the mantle of world’s greatest living actress lightly, apologizing when her dress gets askew and flashes a bit of skin, and admiring photos of your child before sighing that “it all goes so fast, so fast.” And, she’s quick to point out, there’s not a bounty of juicy roles for even her out there. “There aren’t that many movies around, available. There aren’t that many movies written that I could do. Sometimes they’ll take a villain’s part and turn it into a woman. There aren’t a lot of parts. There aren’t a lot of serious movies,” she says. “That’s all right. I like comedies, too.” But once in a great while comes a part so multidimensional, so delicious, so revelatory as to be irresistible. Such was the case with The Iron Lady, which stars Streep as Margaret Thatcher, the polarizing, controversial British prime minister who served from 1979 to 1990.
