No. 8 ~ MERYL STREEP in “The Devil Wears Prada” (Miranda Priestley)
Some say she is the greatest actress of all time. Not sure I would agree with that,(Hepburns, Davis, Crawford…) but I would say she is the greatest actress of my generation. There is not one of her performances that are bad, not one! Every role is precise, honed, real and a masterpiece. I first saw her in The French Lieutenant’s Woman and soon began to see everything she was in, the list in immense, Out of Africa, Sophie’s Choice, Mama Mia!, Kramer vs. Kramer, Iron Lady…every one is excellent. However, i have to pick a favorite, and Miranda Priestley is my favorite role played by Meryl.
