There are many actresses who are household names. We all know who Angelina Jolie is and we all can pick Jennifer Aniston out of a crowd. Meryl Streep is another incredibly famous actress who is known for so many things. Meryl is recognized as the best actress of her generation and is known for how well she can adapt to a role. You may know her from The Devil Wears Prada, or Sophie’s Choice. The list of Meryl Streep movies may not be if others. However, every role is amazing, and she spends her time doing other things as well. In fact, Meryl Streep has been terribly busy doing charitable deeds in between each role. Meryl Streep movies are great, amazing works of art but her role as life changer is her best role to date and effects more than just movie goers.
Meryl Streep Movies and Beyond
Streep entertains us all on the big screen, on the little screen and even on and off Broadway. But her honorable deeds are what stands out most. In fact, some people draw a comparison between Meryl Streep and the Gates family. Not because Meryl is out there building a life on the back of a motherboard. Instead, the amount of virtuous deeds Meryl has done can be compared to the amount of money the Gates family has donated. Meryl has won more than 16 Academy Award nominations, 25 Golden Globe nominations, won 2 Emmy’s, a handful of Grammy’s and still, the best award she has won has been the rewards one gets from doing good for others.
Women Throughout History
Meryl Streep movies will surely grant her access into the history books but there is ore to her than that. You may have seen that Meryl Streep is the spokesperson for the National Woman’s History Museum. She has even donated copious amounts of money to help the museum in many ways. That alone has turned Meryl into a role model for women and girls of all ages. However, simply being the spokesperson for a museum won’t get a book written about you and your charitable deeds. And yes, Queen Meryl: The Iconic Roles, Heroic Deeds and Legendary Life of Meryl Streep is a book you could buy.
Donating to Causes
The list of Meryl Streep movies may not seem as long in comparison to others but the list of charities she has donated to or helped is long. You can find the Actors Fund of America, Artists for Peace and Justice, Broadway Cares, Girl Up, Healthy Child Healthy World, and Stand Up to Cancer on that list, just to name a few. Many of the causes Meryl supports surround women but she also helps fight against abuse, cancer, HIV, natural disasters, poverty, and so many more. Therefore, Meryl is such an inspiration to women everywhere. There is nothing we can’t do and no fight we can’t tackle so long as we work together. Meryl should be an inspiration to women and girls everywhere but also to men and boys; to us all.
