Streep talk

10 Comments

American actress Meryl Streep, left, and British director Phyllida Lloyd pose after cracking open a barrel of sake at the Ritz-Carlton Tokyo Wednesday during an event to promote their film, "The Iron Lady." Streep, 62, won her third Academy Award for her portrayal of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. The actress, making her 5th visit to Japan, said it was a challenge for her, as an outsider, to play a real person who is still both loved and reviled in equal measure in Britain. Asked by a Japanese reporter if she had picked up any tips playing Thatcher that she could give to Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda, Streep -- who has won three Oscars and eight Golden Globes -- said with a laugh, "If Prime Minister Noda needs acting advice, he can come to me."

"The Iron Lady" opens in Japan on march 16.

Streep's portrayal of Margaret Thatcher is exceptional. The iron lady indeed! Reminds me of when the press interviewed her husband and one reporter asked who wore the pants in the house. He answered that he did but he also ironed them.

I have heard it's a marvelous film - can't wait to see it! Even better that the conservatives don't like the portrayal of their hero one bit - suffer in ya jocks!

I think I'll pass. The greatest-film-critic-ever and pulitzer-prize winning Roger Ebert stated of this film, "You have to be very talented to work with Meryl Streep. It also helps to know how to use her. "The Iron Lady" fails in both of these categories." He did however praise her performance...

Watched the "Iron Lady" last week, her acting was great, my Japanese wife loved it but she has lived in London. I wasn't 100% sure about the movie and even less sure what Japanese will make of it since probably people, at least the younger ones, won't know who Margaret Thatcher is?
