Hallelujah! Meryl Streep on the cover of January Vogue hailed as America's greatest actress.  Hear, hear!  Streep's portrayal of former UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady is earning rave reviews.  S-h-o-c-k-e-r! 

The woman is brilliant and beautiful, and I really just want to befriend her gorgeous daughters Mamie, Grace and Louisa in hopes that I'd be invited to a slumber party at Meryl's house.

Saturday night, after my girlfriends left my Christmas party, I was laying on the couch flipping through the channels when I saw Bridges of Madison County playing. I immediately thought 'not a good idea, go to bed Jennifer. It's past 2am afterall.' Well, I ignored my better judgement and wound up a sobbing mess by the time the movie ended. I finally got to bed around 3:30am puffy faced and wishing she had only opened that damn door! Seriously, if a man tells you "this kind of certainty comes but once in a lifetime" YOU LISTEN!

The point of it all, is that Meryl is awesome and I love her movies - especially Bridges of Madison County - even though I swell up with estrogen and cry my eyeballs out every time I watch it.

Man, she's got the world on a string.

I adore Meryl Streep, and I'm not a starstruck sort of person. Out of Africa is my favorite (and luckily my husband's, too). But I love every single one of her roles.
