Did you know Meryl Streep wasn’t born with that name?

Meryl Streep was on The Graham Norton Show a while ago, and the host asked her about her name. It turns out that she wasn’t always Meryl Streep. Her last name was the same, but her first name was Mary, like her mother and her mother before her.

The Oscar winner’s dad didn’t want to have two Marys in the house, so he came up with Meryl.

When the actress was a child, she hated her name. However, it is that name, along with her acting, that made her stand out in a crowd.

Sometimes a rose by any other name is not the same!


Meryl Streep thought Jonah Hill called her goat as compared to the GOAT

Jonah Hill was so excited to work with Meryl Streep on Don’t Look Up that he kept calling her the GOAT. Well, the Oscar-winning actress didn’t know what they meant. She thought that he was calling her an old goat, like the animal.

So when Streep told Jennifer Lawrence about it, the actress explained to the legend that it means Greatest Of All Time. That made Streep feel better, but she was still OK with the first definition too.

And that is why she is the GOAT of them all.


What is, actresses who beat Meryl Streep?

We always think of Meryl Streep as a winner. However, Jeopardy thinks of her as a loser. That is why they had a whole category called “I Beat Meryl”. They asked the contestants to name the actresses who beat her at different awards shows. Proving it is always an honor to just be nominated. Granted winning is better. Then again having a whole category dedicated to you on the game show is not too shabby. Even they do portray you as a loser.


Grandma Mia, Meryl Streep is a grandmother

It has been quite a year for Meryl Streep. In July, she became a grandmother for the first time in Mamma Mia 2 and now she is one in real life too. At least, this time she is alive to enjoy her daughter Mamie Gummer and her finace’ Mehar Sethi’s son.

Us Weekly has no other information at this time about her grandson, but I am sure we will hear all about him when Streep’s next movie comes out. You can just picture her being all giddy as she talks about him in her cute little way.

Meryl Streep and Cher were photographed kissing on the lips, so do they have something to tell us? Mamma Mia, do they have something to tell us. Their second movie together Mamma Mia 2: Here We Go Again comes out this Friday and they want you to see it.

Am I the only one who finds it interesting that the 72-year-old actress is playing Streep’s mom when she is only 3 years older than her?

When it comes to what other movie they did together, that was 1983’s Silkwood that earned them both Oscar nominations. Maybe history will repeat itself and both of them will find themselves nominated again 35 years later for a film they are both in.
