Once again, CrazyCook seems to be on a mission! Just half an hour ago, I left a post, but now I feel compelled to wander from the topic of "food" and onto the topic of "fame!" It seems that every time I turn around, there's another movie being launched,
or shown on tv...
Not to ignore any other (movies) in the meantime, I'm sitting here watching "The Devil Wears Prada" have totally enjoyed her role in "Julie and Julia" and now, I see the advertising for "The Iron Lady!" Surely, Meryl Streep should be proclaimed as one of the
current "great" actors... I've read a couple reviews of her role as Margaret Thatcher that were not overly favorable, but lets's face it folks, Meryl's "star" shines, no matter what the role. Perhaps Hollywood should have approached Helen Mirren... oh, but
wait, SHE has already played the Queen! lol...
I had come to believe that there would NEVER again be a GREAT STAR in Hollywood, such as Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, or the like, but lo and behold, along comes Meryl Streep... I'm at a loss for words right now, as I cannot think of another actor who springs
to mind as often as Meryl.
I wonder how, or why, it is that I favor female lead roles, over their male counterparts? Perhaps it's that the female gender seems to have so much more fun on screen... Myrna Loy and William Powell have a wonderful time in the "Thin Man" movies, but I really
do feel that the shows are stolen by Myrna's protrayal of Nora Charles, married to "Nick" rather than the spotlight being on William throughout. Have you never watched it, I recommend the movie "The Women" which has a glowing cast of females from start to
finish... in fact, there is not one single MALE role in the lineup of stars!
Once again, I realize that I've digressed and wandered... fact of the matter is, I truly do wish to see the movie "The Iron Lady," once it's released on dvd or whatever.
Perhaps I've become a "die hard fan" of Meryl... but then, there are many another of now and the past... Afterall, when a star shines, it SHINES!
So, be healthy, be happy, and SHINE CRAZY!
