Recently, Lifetime has done several biopics that did not need to be done and casted people that are nothing like the people they are playing. Now they are doing one about Meryl Streep and Christina Applegate is playing the multi-Oscar winner. Funny or Die got their hands on the trailer, and it might be Lifetime’s worst biopic since the Unauthorized Full House Story. So painfully awful, and that is just Applegate’s acting.
We saw Meryl Streep do her best Disco in Mama Mia, and now we are seeing her rock out in Ricki and the Flash on August 7th. For the most part, it looks like a movie you would watch on cable during a lazy weekend afternoon. But that doesn’t mean it’s not going to be good. Sometimes those films are really enjoyable, especially when they star Meryl Streep.
My only problem with it, is why does everyone have to look like sh!t? I mean, her own daughter, Mamie Gummer, looks older than her and that’s not a good thing. Plus, for the first time Rick Springfield doesn’t look f*ckable and that says a lot.
Remember whenEllen DeGeneres took the greatest Selfie of all time at the Oscars and she cut off part of Meryl Streep’s face? Well, she decided to make it up to the Oscar winner on her show and took another Selfie with her, but this time she included her castmates from Into the Woods. How did it go for the beloved actress? Even worse than it did the first time. Poor, Meryl. Whoever thought anyone could shadow her greatness? I guess you can say that only the hostess with the mostest can achieve that. Once again, I have to say, poor Meryl.
Meryl Streep was on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday and the ABC late night host asked her some random questions. The two of them were talking about how fans come up to them and ask take a photo with them. So he wanted to know where was the most uncomfortable place that some asked for this? She told him that someone approached her 2 days beforehand in a bathroom outside the stall. So for future reference, don’t ask her or anyone for a picture after they have used the powder room.
Then he went on to ask her if she would to do a Superhero movie and she told him “depends on the powers.” Next question was if she would do a Madea movie which she didn’t answer, but admitted she has seen bits of one. Can you see her watching a Tyler Perry movie?
Then the 3 time Oscar winner went on to share with us that she saw The Beatles live at Shea back in 1965. In fact, she had a poster that declared her love for Paul McCartney. Which nearly half a century later, she got like a thank you from him because he asked her to be in his music video.
I could watch her talk all day because she is so humble and loveable. It’s like everything she says is as perfect as her acting, but she is being real. How can you not adore her? She is a diamond in the rough we call Hollywood!
Bill and Hillary Clinton along with Meryl Streep went to see Holland Taylor star as Ann Richards on Broadway and after the show they all posed together with the inspiring Gabby Giffords for a picture.
Even though I was looking at some political and acting bigs all taking a photo together, the only thing I could notice is how the former President was posing with Oscar winner. I can see that Streep and Hillary are dressed alike and both are blondes, but you would think by now he would know the former Secretary of State anywhere. Right?
