Meryl Streep

Meryl Streep is one of my favorite actress. I adore her since Meryl Streep starred in The Devil Wears Prada by 2006. The Devil Wears Prada is a drama romance yet a bit of comedy movie. In The Devil Wears Prada, I was amazed by her as the executive editor in Runway fashion magazine. She looks so sophisticated.

In 2008, I was amazed by her in Mamma Mia! Even if Mamma Mia! is a musical movie and this movie is dedicated for those who are big fans of ABBA, but i don't mind, i always love to see Meryl Streep! In Mamma Mia!, Meryl Streep plays as a mother of Sophie who is about to be married by a young Greek man (huh, i forget his name!). Without telling her mother, Sophie invites three men who could be her father, they are Harry, Bill, and Sam. One point i love to see from this movie is the scenery of Greek Island, sooo pretty, also beautiful!

Recently, i watched Meryl Streep in Julie and Julia. Julie and Julia is a biography drama comedy movie. This movie is based on true stories which is from two books, the books are My Life in France (Julia Child's autobiography) and Julie & Julia (a memoir which is written by Julie Powell). She plays as Julia Child, a real-life character. This movie tells about Julia's and Julie's life. In 1949, Julia as the wife of a diplomat, wonders how to spend her days. Julia decides to have a cooking course in Cordon Bleu. She starts cooking until she is a master of cooking then published her book with her friends. This book is "Mastering The Art of Cooking". In 2002, Julie Powell, a young housewife who doesn't have a passion with her job, tries to cook all the recipes from "Mastering The Art of Cooking" in a year then publish it in a blog "The Julie/Julia Project" (do you want to see julie's blog?click here). In short, the similarity among Julia and Julie is a good housewife with a great ability to cook, because every woman must be good at cooking to be loved by their husbands.

Guys, from three movies above, there is a similiarity about Meryl Streep. The similiarity is Meryl Streep is always paired with the new young actresses. In The Devil Wears Prada, Anne Hathaway is paired with Meryl Streep, Anne plays as the asisstant of Meryl. Then, In Mamma Mia!, Amanda Seyfried is paired with Meryl Streep as her daughter. Same as the previous movies, Meryl Streep is paired with Amy Adams, although they are never in one frame. So, who will be the next actress to be paired with Meryl Streep? We'll wait and we'll see another Meryl Streep movie! :)
