I remember having parts of this interview posted before, but somehow – I guess with the new video archive – this one got lost. So here’s a treat from the past I was reminded of when preparing “The Manchurian Candidate” as Movie of the Week. In 2004, Jonathan Ross aired a half-hour interview special with Meryl as part of his “Film 2004” series. The full interview can be watched in two parts in the video archive.

Besides the insightful and funny interview, footage from the 2003 BAFTA Awards (“I would like to spank Spike Jonze”), the 1983 Oscar press room as well as from the makings of “The French Lieteunant’s Woman” and “Plenty” are – unfortunately only briefly featured. Screencaptures from the interview have been added as well. My thanks to Alvaro, who originally taped and sent this to me. Thanks!


Three new videos have been added to the archives – a live interview with Fox2News from today, a backstage interview after winning the Golden Globe on “The Insider”, and a film excerpt from “The Iron Lady”. Edit: An interview with Good Day L.A. has been added as well. Then, Meryl has won the London Critics Circle Film Award as Best Actress (tying with Anna Paquin for, ironically, “Margaret). She has also won the Dorian Award as Film Performance of the Year and has received nominations for the Iowa Film Critics Award and the Australian Academy Cinema Television Arts as Best International Actress. Thanks to Frank for the heads-up.


While it’s very quiet these days regarding Meryl and “The Iron Lady”, I went through my collection to update the site’s archives with additional pictures of Meryl’s early work. So have a look at production stills from her early theater work, including “Miss Julie”, “The Idiots Karamazov”, “Secret Service”, “The Taming of the Shrew” and “Alice in Concert” – as well as stills of Meryl’s 1980 appearance on the American series “Omnibus”. Enjoy!


Many thanks to Tina for providing scans from three issues of the French Elle magazine, ranging from 1982 to 1991 and featuring some fantastic new (old) pictures :-) Enjoy!


Lots and lots of additional appearances pictures have been added to the image library, ranging from 1978 to 1990. Each updated gallery can be reached through the previews below. Enjoy!


Since it’s June 22, no post would be possible without sending some birthday wishes to Meryl Streep, who turns 62 today! Regarding today’s update, a batch of rare pictures from various public appearances throughout the 1980s have been added to the image library. Previews and list below. Enjoy the new additions!
