It’s a common complaint that there are no roles for actresses of a certain age. This is because a) there are not many written, and b) those that are all seem to go to Meryl Streep. Yet, who could begrudge her? Now entering her fourth decade of being dubbed "the greatest living actress," she is the beloved grand dame of Hollywood, with everyone still rooting for her at the Oscars even though we all know that, with three, she has plenty, but it’s so entertaining to watch her gasp and fumble her glasses and act like it all still affects her after all the years of plaudits. And that’s part of her charm: always looking like she’s having fun.
In the eighties, she dove into the most wrenching material, but now she seems driven by what she will enjoy (one pictures her choosing movies like Julia Child would go grocery shopping: a little of this, oh my, that would be good today ...). What bigger fuck-you is there to anyone who might think of her as a precious actor than clearly having a ball doing Mamma Mia! ? Or giggling and flirting her way through Nancy Meyers’s It’s Complicated ? She was better than them both, but she didn’t act like it, and audiences flocked to them, with Mamma Mia! grossing an astounding $ million worldwide. She has not given up on serious drama, winning an Oscar for last year’s The Iron Lady , but before taking on the Pulitzer Prize-winning August: Osage County , she’ll appear in the August marriage comedy Hope Springs . It probably won’t get her an Oscar, but she’ll make it more fun than sex therapy with Tommy Lee Jones should be.
