Here comes a great blast from the past, courtesy the Today Show. In 1981, Meryl Streep was interviewed by Gene Shalit on “The French Lieutenant’s Woman”, her TIME magazine cover, which would become an inspiration for actresses in years to come, and her newfound stardom. Here’s Streep at 32, serious and seemingly uncomfortable with being a public person – and being interviewed. An early interview that shouldn’t be missed. You can also find screencaptures in the photo gallery.

Here comes a great find from the past. One of the first organizations that Meryl Streep publicly supported was Dr. Helen Calidcott’s Women’s Actions for Nuclear Disarmament. In 1981, Meryl narrated the documentary “Eight Minutes to Midnight” about Caldicott’s crusade against nuclear power. And in 1983, Meryl taped a television public service announcement for WAND to raise awarenes of their actions for Nuclear Disarmament in the wake of the ABC television film “The Day After”. You can now watch the PSA in the video archive.
