Streep going strong, but had her doubts
Meryl Streep may be considered one of the finest actresses around, yet she says she believed her career was over 20 years ago, The Associated Press reports. Streep, 62, tells Vogue magazine she was offered three different roles to play a witch after turning 40. She believed it meant women in her age group were "grotesque on some level," and told her husband her career was over. Streep graces the cover of Vogue magazine for the first time for January and jokes in the magazine she's the "oldest person" to do so. Next, she plays the former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the film "Iron Lady."
