Who is this brilliant lady?

Meryl Streep


  1. She's the first one I guessed from her old photo! I think it's her nose...it's just a tad crooked and it adds so much character! I LOVE MERYL. She's probably my favorite actress of all time!

    PS: How are you handling quarantine? It's almost over sweets!! Hang in there!

  2. Totally guessed her when I saw her photo. I didn't even read the tidbits because I KNEW I was right. I think it's the face that she has small, perky features and almond shaped eyes. Plus, I've watched a lot of movies with Meryl.

    It's almost Sunday! And I know I didn't post today. I had planned on it. But my BlackBerry being killed today really put a stank in my mood for the day.

  3. HI - stopping by from SITS. I thought it was Meryl Streep. she hasn't changed much from this photo. have a great week.

  4. I like her. She is so talented and I love watching her.

    This photo of her looks like the girl /daughter in mama mia.

  5. I guessed right, just from the photo.

    She's aged well AND still looks like herself.

  6. Im with Ashley ..I knew i was right with meryl..Wooo Hooo.!
