Meryl Streep
Meryl Streep has always considered herself a character actress, once insisting, "I didn't have any confidence in my beauty when I was young." Yet Streep has much proved herself as a truly compelling leading lady. The blue-eyed living legend can do anything — and beautifully, at that.

During an interview with WSJ Magazine, Streep talked about aging in Hollywood: "But everybody has troughs and dismal times — every single person. I remember as I was hovering around 40, I thought each movie would be my last, really. And all the evidence of other 40-year-old women at that time — this is 27 years ago — would lead you to believe it was over."

Streep is married to Don Gummer and can be seen in films and TV show like Little WomenBig Little Lies, and Mary Poppins Returns
