At 65, Meryl Streep Still Very Active With Four New Movies

AT 65,MERYL STREEP continues to be the most active actress in Hollywood today. She's currently in the cast of four new movies no less. This Christmas, she's in the film version of Stephen Sondheim's hit Broadway musical, "Into the Woods", a combination of several fairy tales and she plays the witch. She co-stars with Johnny Depp as the Wolf, Emily Blunt as the Baker's Wife, Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Chris Pine as the Prince and many more, directed by Rob Marshall.

She plays a pioneer woman who escorts three insane women Nebraska to Iowa in "The Homesman", co-starring with Tommy Lee Jones, who co-writes and directs it. Also in the cast are Hilary Swank, John Lithgow, Miranda Otto, Grace Gummer and James Spader.

Then she's also in "The Giver", based on the iconic children's novel by Lois Lowry, she co-stars with Jeff Bridges, Taylor Swift, Alexander Skarsgaard and Katie Holmes, directed by Phillip Noyce.
But the one we can't wait to see is her movie with Julia Roberts, "August: Osage County", based on the Pulitzer Prize winning play of Tracy Letts about a mother who's suffering from mouth cancer (Meryl) and her relationship with her drunkard husband (Sam Shephard) and their three daughters (Julia, Juliette Lewis and Julianne Nicholson). Also in the cast are Ewan MacGregor, Dermot Mulroney, Chris Cooper and Abigail Breslin as Meryl's precocious teenage granddaughter. Meryl is the most nominated actress in Oscar history, 17 times. She has won three Oscars for "Kramer vs. Kramer" (1979), "Sophie's Choice" (1982) and "The Iron Lady" (2011). We won't be surprised if she'd get another nomination for this one.
