Biography of Meryl Streep

The American actress Meryl Streep was born as Mary Louise Streep on June 22nd, 1949 in Summit (New Jersey, USA). She has two siblings and studied theater at Yale University, among others.

For her first leading role in the divorce drama "Kramer versus Kramer" (1979 opposite Dustin Hoffman), Streep received her first Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in 1980. To date, the actress has been nominated 14 times for the coveted film award, making her the most nominated actress of all time.

In the 1980s Meryl Streep continued her successful career and won her second Oscar with her role in "Sophie's Decision" (1982) - this time in the category "Best Actress".

In the 1990s Streep was seen in commercially successful productions such as "Death suits her well" (1991 with Bruce Willis and Goldie hawn), "The bridges on the river" (1995 on the side of Clint Eastwood) and "Marvin's Daughters" (1996 with Leonardo DiCaprio, Diane Keaton and Robert de Niro).

In the past few years, the actress has made an impression with films such as "The Devil Wears Prada" (2006 with Emily Blunt and Anne Hathaway, among others) and "Von Löwen und Lammern" (2007 with Tom Cruise).

In her latest film "Mamma Mia!" Meryl Streep mimes the single mother Donna, who has not yet revealed to her daughter Sophie who her father is. Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth can also be seen in the music comedy. Critics attest the colorful stripe to be a box-office hit.

Since the mid-1990s, the dubbing actress Dagmar Dempe is the permanent dubbing voice of Meryl Streep.
