The cast and crew have kept a layer of ambiguity over Streep's role but in the end, it's not the actress you're seeing Mamma Mia 2 for.
Robert De Niro is still owed his $1 million fee from The Weinstein Company for starring in Silver Linings Playbook, according to reports.
The sale of the bankrupt Weinstein Company, the production company run by Harvey Weinstein and his brother Bob, has hit a snag.
From Jordan Peele winning Best Adapted Screenplay to Roger Deakins finally getting a statue after 13 nominations, there were some historic moments at this year's ceremony.
Meryl Streep has slated the lawyers representing Harvey Weinstein for using her name in defending him from a class action lawsuit.
Films based on high profile, relatively well-known “true stories” usually emphasise performance and pacing over plot. After all, it’s difficult to maintain tension when most of your audience already knows how the film will end. Viewers of “The Post” will probably already know the events that the movie is based on.
Entertainment One has released the first trailer for Steven Spielberg's historical drama 'The Post', and it's a rather star-studded affair.
"There was an offense and it is something for which Dustin apologized," the actress' rep said in a statement.
Meryl Streep has said that she's accepted an apology from Dustin Hoffman over an incident of groping back in the 1970s.
A timely film about the vital role of the press in keeping government honest is coming together with a powerhouse cast. Steven Spielberg just said yes to direct Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep in The Post, the spec script by Liz Hannah bought last fall by Amy Pascal’s Pascal Pictures. The deals are being negotiated. The film is a drama about the Washington Post’s role in exposing the Pentagon Papers in 1971, and how the Post’s editor Ben Bradlee and publisher Kay Graham challenged the federal government over their right to publish them.
When Meryl Streep was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award at last night’s Golden Globe Awards, producers played a montage showcasing the actress’s many great characters. There was her Oscar-winning turn as Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady, her star-making role as a mother fighting for custody in Kramer vs. Kramer — and then there was her performance as a bitter, aging actress who makes a deal with the devil to stay forever young in Death Becomes Her. That 1992 black comedy may not be Streep’s biggest hit or most acclaimed role, but it was the one that immediately started trending on social media last night. Directed by Robert Zemeckis in between Back to the Future Part III and Forrest Gump, Death Becomes Her is a broad horror-comedy about two middle-aged frenemies — actress Madeline Ashton (Streep) and author Helen Sharp (Goldie Hawn) — whose rivalry comes to a head when they discover a secret potion that will restore their youth and beauty.
Hours before Meryl Streep delivered one of the buzziest awards-show speeches in years — taking President-elect Donald Trump to task for mocking a disabled reporter and embracing a controversial stance on immigration — attendees at Sunday’s Golden Globes were already singing her praises. “She might be the finest actress of all time,” Cuba Gooding Jr. (The People v. O.J. Simpson) said about Streep, who was on hand both as a nominee (for Florence Foster Jenkins) and as the recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s lifetime-achievement honor.
Despite losing her voice, Meryl Streep used her Golden Globes platform to send out a message loud and clear to the powers that be. “I’ve lost my voice in screaming and lamentation this weekend,” explained Streep, who took part in the memorial services held last week for her good friend Carrie Fisher and Fisher’s mother, Debbie Reynolds. It’s just a bunch of people from other places.” And then, to their astonishment, Streep called out eight other Golden Globe nominees and described their diverse backgrounds — from Viola Davis (who presented Streep’s award), born in rural South Carolina and raised in Rhode Island, to Dev Patel, born in Kenya, raised in London, and nominated for “playing an Indian raised in Tasmania” in Lion.
The left needs Donald Trump to go away yesterday, while the right feels the same about Hillary Clinton. Someone like… Oprah Winfrey or Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson? “Everyone keeps talking about The Rock for president,” said Scott Eastwood (Snowden).
The classic weepy ‘Kramer vs. Kramer’ may have trawled the Oscars in 1980, but a new book has lifted the lid on the alleged tempestuous behaviour on set, notably from its star Dustin Hoffman. The movie, released in 1979 and helmed by Richard Benton, starred Hoffman alongside Meryl Streep, playing a couple in the midst of the bitter custody battle of their son.
Meryl Streep had an interesting view on concerns that the jury panel for the Berlin Film Festival was made up of all white judges. The Oscar-winner was asked what she thought about the profile of the group, which includes herself alongside Clive Owen, actor Lars Eidinger, film critic Nick James, photographer Brigitte Lacombe, actress Alba Rohrwacher and director Malgorzata Szumowska, by an Egyptian reporter.
What do you get when some of the most amazing women in Hollywood come together for one night only? For the 22nd Annual ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards, held on Monday night at the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills on Monday, Kate Winslet, Carey Mulligan, Alicia Vikander, Amy Schumer, Ava Duvernay, and Meryl Streep, were all honored with trophies in addition to their magazine covers. Shailene Woodley, who walked her first red carpet in months to honor her Divergent co-star Winslet, Zoe Kravitz and her boyfriend Twin Shadow, Nina Dobrev, Mary J. Blige, and Johnson’s entire family — Tippi Hedren, Melanie Griffith, and Stella Banderas — were all in the audience.
I watched on as the women discussed what early 20th century feminists like Emmeline Pankhurst (Streep’s character in the film and a leader of the movement in Great Britain) would think of the state of women’s issues today. Historian Simon Schama moderated the panel and posed this question: If the suffragettes were here today to see the women in the world, what would they say to us?
