It’s a near-scientific fact that it’s impossible to dislike Meryl Streep.
Her unrelenting combination of smarts and sass have won her an army of fans throughout the years, and it’s easy to see why. Let’s relive her best lines… Because why not?
The Iron Lady – Her turn as Maggie Thatcher certainly nailed the former PM’s icy-cold steel.
“Many men have underestimated me before. This lot seem bound to do the same, but they will rue the day.”
The Devil Wears Prada – Arguably her most iconic role, her turn as fashion editor Miranda Priestly was equal parts withering and wonderful.
“By all means move at a glacial pace. You know how that thrills me.”
Death Becomes Her – You could take pretty much any line from this camp comedy classic, but her reaction to her frenemy’s demise is timeless bitchy brilliance.
“She is? Oh. These are the moments that make life worth living.”
Julie & Julia – When her middle-aged TV chef eloquently describes cannelloni.
“These damn things are as hot as a stiff cock.” Quite.
