Meryl Streep 60 Minutes Interview

Meryl Streep on the Double Standard For Strong Women

"No one has ever asked an actor, 'You're playing a strong-minded man," Meryl Streep pointed out on 60 Minutes last night. "We assume that men are strong-minded, or have opinions. But a strong-minded woman is a different animal." With this response to the observation that she often portrays determined women, it became clear that Meryl Streep has something in common with former UK prime minister Margaret Thatcher, the woman she embodies in her latest film. They both are not satisfied with traditional labels and double standards applied to women. In last night's wide-ranging interview, Meryl discussed everything from that buzz-worthy role in Iron Lady to her role in helping build a National Women's History Museum in DC. Watch a clip below if you need another reason to love her.
