The actress and the director recently gave the Wall Street Journal an interview that can be read in the magazines archive. Punctuating their conversation with raucous laughter, Ms. Streep and Ms. Ephron spoke about towering women – Ms. Streep wore platform shoes in the film – and facing off against fanboys at the box office. The movie “Julie & Julia” intertwines the stories of two women – Julia Child discovering her love of cooking and blogger Julie Powell cooking her way though Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking.” The film’s star, Meryl Streep, and its writer and director, Nora Ephron, play off their links, too. They came to know each other through their friendships with director Mike Nichols and worked together on “Silkwood” (1983) and “Heartburn” (1986). Ms. Streep shot to the top of Ms. Ephron’s casting list when they ran into each other at a Shakespeare performance in New York’s Central Park: Ms. Ephron, who is also a producer on the movie, mentioned the project and Ms. Streep warbled, “Bon Appetit!”
