While this part features quite a few articles on “Julie & Julia”, no film with Meryl has garnered more attention by the press, especially the British press, than “The Iron Lady”. So below you’ll find a lot of interviews from US and European articles. Kudos to whoever came up with Iron Ma’am cover for the National Post, very funny.

Part two rushes through the 1990s with articles covering “The River Wild” and “The Bridges of Madison County”, the “comeback” years of the early 2000s with “Adaptation” and “The Hours” and the superstar years, staring with “The Devil Wears Prada”. Once again, some great new cover stories, especially for 1990’s “Postcards from the Edge” and for the late 1990s promotion of “One True Thing.”

If you thought last week’s magazines update was massive, brace yourself. My friend Alvaro has made good use of the latest technology to digitalize stacks and stacks of old magazines and newspaper articles to share on Simply Streep. So today’s update is split into five posts because there are a whopping 170 articles added with over 450 pages. Many many thanks for this wonderful contribution. Let’s start with early articles beginning in 1979 and covering Meryl’s rise to stardom with “Kramer vs. Kramer” through the 1980s and articles on “Out of Africa” and “A Cry in the Dark”. Lots of great covers, especially from Canada. The 1979 Cosmopolitan article features a stunning full page photo, as you can see below. A full list of new galleries can be found below the previews.

One of my favorite tasks is to find pictures from old events. And since it’s been some time since the last proper appearances update, I’ve finally managed to upload all pictures I have found over the last months – a good 200 images ranging from the 1979 premiere for “Kramer vs. Kramer” to 1999’s “Music of the Heart”. All albums with new pictures have also been updated and replaced with better quality versions, so make sure to look around. Since there’s too much to list, simply click the previews below for a complete list of last added albums or click here for all last added pictures. Two recent events have been updated as well, last month’s PEN America Literary Gala and last year’s Tokyo Film Festival Opening Ceremony. Enjoy the new additions.

Besides her film work, a big part of Meryl’s career consists of narrations for television programs, documentaries and feature films. It’s a wide range of interests, from human rights and nature to art and music. And probably even something for her children to watch (The Simpsons and King of the Hill). Especially in her feature voice work, it’s amazing how even animated characters come to life through her voice, just have a look at the amazing “Fantastic Mr. Fox” and the equally odd but entertaining “Higglety Pigglety Pop” from 2010. Three new categories have been added to the video archive, Narration: Film & Television, Narration: Documentaries and Miscellaneous Productions with over 50 additions of excerpts, behind-the-scenes recordings and trailers. Also, make sure to visit the career page to learn more about these projects. Enjoy.
