Next week will see the release of “Her Again: Becoming Meryl Streep”, a wonderfully research book that explores how Meryl Streep became the celebrated actress she is today. It goes way back to her upbringing in New Jersey, her training at Yale and Vassar University to her first successes on the New York stages and on tv and film with Holocaust and Kramer vs. Kramer. I have been able to read the book already and can wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone interested in Meryl’s early year and the process of becoming an actor. Make sure to pre-order your copy. For Simply Streep, Mr. Schulman has taken the time to answer some questions about the book and his research. Enjoy reading:
What made you interested in Meryl Streep’s early career to write “Her Again”?
I’ve always been an admirer of her work, but mostly knew her in her current incarnation: the top-of-her-game, self-deprecating diva who’s been our “Greatest Living Actress” for over three decades. When I started contemplating a book, I began asking myself: Who was Meryl Streep before she became iconic? Was she ever just a twenty-something working actress trying to figure out what to do with her life? How did she learn to do what she does? Can it even be learned? In other words, I was interested in the Meryl Streep we don’t know. It just so happened that the story of her artistic coming-of-age was also a story about New York in the 1970s, a period I’ve always been drawn to. And, of course, it was the story of her two great loves: John Cazale and Don Gummer. This period of her life was full of great characters, inherent drama, and deep, conflicting emotions—not unlike a Meryl Streep movie.
A first promotional featurette for “Florence Foster Jenkins” has been released, including interviews with Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant and director Stephen Frears. Lots of new scenes (and a tiny bit of Florence’s singing) are included as well. Screencaptures from the video have been added to the photo gallery.
Today’s Scan Sunday features some wonderful contributions by Jarka, who has scanned Czech and Slovakian magazines that range from 1992 to 2015. Thank you very much. Also added are two recent scans, Film TV from Italy, with many thanks to Simona, and Entertainment Weekly’s April 22 issue, with many thanks to Claudia. Enjoy the new scans.

There’s more to come, so check back soon. American fans will have to wait a bit longer to see the film, as Paramount has set its release date for August 12. Edit: Hundreds of additional pictures have been posted, including many HQs submitted by my friend Lindsey. Enjoy the new additions.
This week’s Scan Sunday features a bunch of great cover stories from Germany and one from Austria. Included is a 1986 of Quick (that’s how fast you forget their gossiping about a possible Streep/Nicholson affair for the release of “Heartburn”) and a lenghty Stern cover story on “The House of the Spirits and the return of romantic movies, also covering Sleepless in Seattle and The Piano. The fourth magazine, another beautiful cover, has been replaced with higher resolution scans. Many thanks to Fred and Alvaro for their contributions.

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).
Scans from the April issue of Vanity Fair have been added to the photo gallery, featruing a lenghty excerpt of the upcoming book “Her Again” and some amazing pictures from Brigitte Lacombe. Many thanks to Alvaro and to Ann for helping me on this one. Enjoy your Sunday!
