Streep told Vanity Fair magazine, “It’s incredible – I’m 60, and I’m playing the romantic lead in romantic comedies. Bette Davis is rolling over in her grave.”

“I’ve been given great, weird, interesting parts well past my ‘sell-by date’. I remember saying to my husband Don when I was 38, ‘Well, it’s over’. And then we kicked the can down the road a little further.”

She added, “I can’t remember the last time I really worried about being appealing. I think it was a really long time ago.”

It might have something to do with the fact that Streep holds the record for the most Academy Award Nominations (15) with two wins and most Golden Globe nominations too (23) with six wins. And the fact that she excels in pretty much everything she does. Age doesn’t stand in the way of stellar talent it seems, I can’t quite see her doing Oil of Olay adverts just yet.

StumbleUpon It!
