Meryl Streep Plays “Shun, Shag Or Marry”

Saucy little minx Meryl Streep hit up “Watch What Happens Live” for a rousing game of Shun, Shag or Marry with her ex-costars. The options were Robert Redford, Jack Nicholson and Dustin Hoffman.

The Meryl Streep Look Book

There’s no question that Meryl Streep has displayed incredible consistency as a powerhouse actress — this Sunday will mark her seventeenth Academy Award nomination — but style-wise, she’s been a bit all over the map.

Cher Sometimes Calls Her Son Chaz Bono “Her”

“If I woke up tomorrow in a guy’s body, I would just kick and scream and cry and f**king rob a bank, because I cannot see myself as anything but who I am — a girl. I would not take it as well as Chaz has. I couldn’t imagine it. … She’s a very smart… More »

Quotable: Sharon Stone Thinks Meryl Streep Looks Like An Unmade Bed

“I think that’s why Meryl Streep is working so much, because she looks like a woman we can all relate to. I look at her and I think, ‘I’m chasing my kids, I’ve moved my parents in with me, I’m coping with food spills — that looks like me in real life’. Meryl looks like… More »
