Meryl Streep Net Worth, Wiki & Biography in 2017

Considered to be one of the best actors in the history of cinema, Mary Louise Streep was born on 22 June 1949, in Summit, New Jersey USA, of Swiss-German descent through her father, and English, Irish and German through her mother. Meryl is known particularly for her appearances in such movies as “The Iron Lady”, “Sophie’s Choice”, “The Devil Wears Prada”, “Adaptation”, and “Julie & Julia”. The proof of her acclaim is that she has received numerous prestigious awards, including Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild, AFI Life Achievement and BAFTA Awards among many others. In 2010 Meryl received the National Medal of Arts and four years later the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

So just how rich is Meryl Streep? Authoritative sources estimate that Meryl’s net worth is over $80 million as of early 2017, earned largely through her acting ability which has been on display since the early 1970s.

Meryl Streep Net Worth $80 Million

When Meryl was attending Bernards High School she began taking singing lessons, and participated in several school events. Later Streep continued her studies at Vassar College and there she also acted in various plays; her talent was soon noticed by others in the college. In 1971 Meryl decided to attend Yale School of Drama, although in order to support herself, she had to work different jobs. During her studies Meryl continued to appear in plays and improve her practical acting skills. Meryl decided to seek a career in the movie industry, but unfortunately her first audition for a movie was not successful and she came back to performing in plays. In 1977 Meryl finally got her first movie role, in the film called “Julia”. One year later, Meryl appeared in the movie entitled “The Deer Hunter”, which brought her to the attention of others in the movie industry. Soon Meryl started receiving more and more invitations to act in different projects, and was cast in the television show called “Holocaust”. This show had a huge impact on the growth of Meryl Streep’s net worth and her popularity.

In 1983 Meryl appeared in another successful movie, called “Silkwood”. Then over the years he also appeared in such movies as “Falling in Love”, “Heartburn”, “Defending Your Life” and many others. All these appearances added a lot to Meryl’s net worth. In 2008 Streep became even more popular after appearing in the film adaptation of the musical “Mamma Mia!”. During the making of this movie, Meryl worked together with Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Amanda Seyfried, Julie Walters and many others. This movie also added a lot to Streep’s net worth.

Confirming Meryl Streep’s talent and worth in the movie industry, during her lengthy career, Meryl has appeared in almost 60 films, and has received 19 Oscar nominations, being one of only six actors to win three or more. Additionally, she has been nominated for Golden Globes 29 times, more than any other actor, winning eight, also the most won.

As mentioned, Streep is also known for her appearances in television shows. Some of these shows include “Web Therapy”, “Angels in America”, “Secret Service”, “Alice at the Palace” among others. Recently Meryl has been working on “Ricki and the Flash” and “Suffragette”. Hopefully, these movies will receive a lot of popularity and success, adding to her net worth.

To talk about Meryl Streep’s personal life, it can be said that she had a relationship with John Cazale, but sadly he died in 1978. In the same year, Meryl married Don Gummer and they still live together; the couple has four children. Meryl is not only a remarkable actress, but she also is a very generous person. She supports the National Women’s History Museum, and The Public Theater, as well as having established scholarships awarded to deserving English at maths students at the University of Massachusetts.

#Quote
1[her Cecil B. DeMille Award acceptance speech] Please sit down. Thank you. I love you all. You'll have to forgive me. I've lost my voice in screaming and lamentation this weekend. And I have lost my mind sometime earlier this year, so I have to read. Thank you, Hollywood Foreign Press. Just to pick up on what Hugh Laurie said: You and all of us in this room really belong to the most vilified segments in American society right now. Think about it: Hollywood, foreigners and the press. But who are we, and what is Hollywood anyway? It's just a bunch of people from other places. I was born and raised and educated in the public schools of New Jersey. Viola was born in a sharecropper's cabin in South Carolina, came up in Central Falls, Rhode Island; Sarah Paulson was born in Florida, raised by a single mom in Brooklyn. Sarah Jessica Parker was one of seven or eight kids in Ohio. Amy Adams was born in Vicenza, Italy. And Natalie Portman was born in Jerusalem. Where are their birth certificates? And the beautiful Ruth Negga was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, raised in London no, in Ireland I do believe, and she's here nominated for playing a girl in small-town from Virginia. Ryan Gosling, like all of the nicest people, is Canadian, and Dev Patel was born in Kenya, raised in London, and is here playing an Indian raised in Tasmania. So, Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners. And if we kick them all out you'll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts. They gave me three seconds to say this, so: An actor's only job is to enter the lives of people who are different from us, and let you feel what that feels like. And there were many, many, many powerful performances this year that did exactly that. Breathtaking, compassionate work. But there was one performance this year that stunned me. It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good; there was nothing good about it. But it was effective and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh, and show their teeth. It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter. Someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back. It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can't get it out of my head, because it wasn't in a movie. It was real life. And this instinct to humiliate, when it's modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody's life, because it kinda gives permission for other people to do the same thing. Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others we all lose. OK., this brings me to the press. We need the principled press to hold power to account, to call him on the carpet for every outrage. That's why our founders enshrined the press and its freedoms in our Constitution. So, I only ask the famously well-heeled Hollywood Foreign Press and all of us in our community to join me in supporting the Committee to Protect Journalists, because we're gonna need them going forward, and they'll need us to safeguard the truth. One more thing: Once, when I was standing around on the set one day, whining about something - you know we were gonna work through supper or the long hours or whatever, Tommy Lee Jones said to me, "Isn't it such a privilege, Meryl, just to be an actor?" Yeah, it is, and we have to remind each other of the privilege and the responsibility of the act of empathy. We should all be proud of the work Hollywood honors here tonight. As my friend, the dear departed Princess Leia, said to me once, take your broken heart, make it into art.
2I'm curious about other people. That's the essence of my acting. I'm interested in what it would be like to be you.

5[on avoiding cosmetic surgery] I really understand the chagrin that accompanies aging, especially for a woman, but I think people look funny when they freeze their faces. In Los Angeles there's a lot of that. I pick up on the part that doesn't move on a face. I'm immediately drawn to it and that is the opposite of what you're intending. You pull focus on the area that's been worked on.
6I was never engaged to John Cazale. We lived together for three years until he died of bone cancer.
7[responding to those who have criticized the emphasis placed on Margaret Thatcher's frail and confused old age] Some people have said it's shameful to portray this part of a life. But the corollary of that is that, if you think that debility, delicacy, dementia are shameful, if you think that the ebbing of a life is something that should be shut away, if you think that people need to be defended from these images then - yes - then you'll think it's a shameful thing.
8[on Margaret Thatcher] I consider all the roles I play a privilege but this one was special because there are such vehement opinions about her. People seemed to look at her as an icon or a monster and I just wanted to locate the human being inside those caricatures that we've seen over so many years. And to investigate myself what it must have been like for her.
9[on what appealed to her about playing Margaret Thatcher] Women and power, and diminishment of power, and loss of power. And reconciliation with your life where you come to a point where you've lived most of it, and it's behind you. I have always liked and been intrigued by older people and the idea that behind them lives every human trauma, drama, glory, jokes, love.
10[on Margaret Thatcher] She's still an incredibly divisive figure, but you miss her clarity today. It was all very clear and up front, and I loved that eagerness to mix it up and to make it about ideas. Today it's all about feelings. You know, "How do I come off?" and, "Does this seem OK?" You want people who are willing to find a solution. I admire the fact that she was a "love-me-or-hate-me" kind of leader who said: "This is what I stand for." It's a hard thing to do and no one's doing that now.
11[on Margaret Thatcher] We on the Left didn't like her policies but secretly we were thrilled that a woman had made it, and we thought, "Wow, if it can happen there in England, it could happen here." But we're still waiting in America.
12It took a lot out of me, but it was a privilege to play her (Margaret Thatcher), it really was. I still don't agree with a lot of her policies. But I feel she believed in them and that they came from an honest conviction, and that she wasn't a cosmetic politician just changing make-up to suit the times.
13[on The Iron Lady (2011)] It was one of those rare, rare films where I was grateful to be an actor and grateful for the privilege of being able to look at a life deeply with empathy.
14[2008] One of the most important keys to acting is curiosity. I am curious to the point of being nosy. What that means is you want to devour lives. You're eager to put on their shoes and wear their clothes and have them become a part of you. All people contain mystery, and when you act, you want to plumb that mystery until everything is known to you.
15[1994, on career choices] What affects your career choices are the three interesting scripts you get in a year, two of which you're wrong for, one you think you might want to do if you're real lucky. You can't possibly plot what's going to be available, what's going to be written, who's going to think of it, and if it will come to you or not.
16[1994, on if she's bothered when one of her films don't do well at the box-office] I'm horribly disappointed when people don't see what I consider some of my best work. Yeah, I'm very sad. But I know that I have a video life. Most of my fans are home with their children waiting for my films to come out on video. But I'm disappointed because certain things should be seen on the big screen. I was very proud of A Cry in the Dark (1988), but it wasn't distributed widely enough for people to have seen it on the big screen.
17[on portraying Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady (2011)] The prospect of exploring the swathe cut through history by this remarkable woman is a daunting and exciting challenge. I am trying to approach the role with as much zeal, fervor and attention to detail as the real Lady Thatcher possesses - I can only hope my stamina will begin to approach her own.
18Turning 60 was important to everyone else. It was a big number, to me it was, 'Well yeah, that comes after 59', and I don't even want to look it in the eye.
19My greatest culinary triumph was when I was falling in love with my husband. We were on the coast of Maine in a cabin and I made an apple pie...just whipped it up, without a recipe or anything..just the perfect pastry. I've never been able to do it again - and he asks for it often!
20If you've been married for a long time you love without looking.
21[on Natasha Richardson's tragic death] Tash was the warm sun in the center of a large constellation of family, friends, all of those lucky enough to know her - she is irreplaceable in our lives; she gave us so much, so generously - her legacy is the love that connects us all.
22[in 2009] I've been nominated for an Oscar 15 times and won twice, but it still feels like it's happening to someone else. I wish I could feel it more.
23[February 2009 about her appearance] My daughters had helped me to stop worrying about my appearance over the years. I wasted so many years thinking I wasn't pretty enough and why didn't I have Jessica Lange's body or someone else's legs? What a waste of time.
24I hate the [Oscar] campaigning thing. It's unseemly. You should be honored for something. It shouldn't be for whose campaign was better.
25[on life as a young actress] When I was 20 I busked to afford accommodation. One night I hadn't earned enough, I actually slept in the open in Green Park [in London]. The view was of the Ritz Hotel and I vowed I'd stay there one day. And I have.
26[on her marriage] There's no road map on how to raise a family: it's always an enormous negotiation. But I have a holistic need to work and to have huge ties of love in my life. I can't imagine eschewing one for the other.
27Listening is everything. Listening is the whole deal. That's what I think. And I mean that in terms of before you work, after you work, in between work, with your children, with your husband, with your friends, with your mother, with your father. It's everything. And it's where you learn everything.
28I don't know what I'd do without my husband. I'd be dead, emotionally at least, if I hadn't met him. He's the greatest.
29I try to lead as ordinary a life as I can. You can't get spoiled if you do your own ironing.
30[on Dustin Hoffman] He's energized and the greatest combination of the generous and the selfish that ever lived. He wants to be the greatest actor who ever was.
31It would be nice to have a woman President. I think half the Senate should be women, half of Parliament, half the ruling mullahs. But that will never happen, darling!
32[on winning a Golden Globe for Adaptation. (2002)]. I've been nominated 789 times and I was getting settled over there for a long winter's nap....I didn't have anything prepared because it's been since the Pleistocene Era that I won anything.
33[on her struggles as an actress earlier in her career] It's hard to negotiate the present landscape with a brain and a female body.
34[accepting the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical 2007] "I think I've worked with everyone in the room! I have!"
35[part of Emmy acceptance speech for Angels in America (2003)] Glenn Close is my friend so I know she'll forgive me, Helen Mirren is an acting god, and no one has put a better performance on film than Judy Davis in Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows (2001). The only one in the group is Emma Thompson, who will hold a grudge for the rest of her life. But who cares?
36I really, really depend on the other actors for the confirmation of who I think I am," she says. "And so it's important to me to work with good people that are not worried about how they look. You know. Real actors. They're your blood.
37It's a lesson I learned in drama school: the teacher asks, how do you be the queen? And everybody says, 'Oh it's about posture and authority.' And they said, no, it's about how the air in the room shifts when you walk in. And that's everyone else's work.
38I mean, come on; when you have people writing these things, that you're the greatest thing that ever ate scenery, you're dead. You're fucking dead. How can you even presume to begin a new character? It's a killer.
39But ... in my own experience of male and female directors, people have a much, much harder time taking a direct command from a woman. It's somehow very difficult for people.
40[on winning the 1983 Best Actress Oscar for Sophie's Choice (1982)] Oh boy, no matter how much you try to imagine what this is like, it's just so incredibly thrilling right down your toes.
41I get nervous calling myself an artist. I feel I'm more like an interpreter or a violinist, you know.
42I think I was wired for family. You know how they say people are wired for religion, or wired for this or that? I always knew I would like to, if I could find the right person, have a family. I can't imagine living single.
43[on her role in The Manchurian Candidate (2004)] I loved being someone so certain. Because certainty is just so attractive in people. To me, it's a completely bogus position - for me. Because, you know, I'm listening to every side. But it's so nice not to have to listen to all the different sides. To be so clear and on your track and sure. It's a fabulous thing. Unfortunately, it leads to fanaticism.
44Someone once said that sometimes studio heads don't want to cast films with the image of their first wife in the role. It's just rather unpleasant for them. So they like the idea of the new one.
45[accepting an Emmy for Angels in America (2003)] You know, there are some days when I myself think I'm overrated, but not today.
46Let's face it, we were all once 3-year-olds who stood in the middle of the living room and everybody thought we were so adorable. Only some of us grow up and get paid for it.
47I love doing comedy, but people just don't give me enough of a chance. It's one of the reasons I enjoy The Manchurian Candidate (2004) so much. It's because I actually get a chance to be funny.
48[on her view of acting back in college] I thought it was really fun, you've got to understand, but I didn't think it was a serious way to conduct your life. You know, I had a sense of mission. I was a true child of the '60s.
49[on her Lifetime Achievement Award from the AFI] I don't want to spit in the eye of good fortune, but it was weird. I felt like I'd butted in line in front of Lucille Ball, Audrey Hepburn, Katharine Hepburn. Hello? How did this happen? I was only the sixth woman to receive it, but they found 26 men to give it to. I thought that was embarrassing.
50[in 1978] I'm looking forward to bigger parts in the future, but I'm not doing soft-core scripts where the character emerges in half-light, half-dressed.
51[Entertainment Tonight (1981)] I had it (smoking), it stinks.
