    The egotists of Hollyweird just can't keep their ignorant mouths shut...she's an actress, that's all...and a fool to boot...people just don't get it - when they see her in a role they believe it and they believe that she's so's fantasy's called film...wake up...these elites live in the lap of luxury and then tell the rest of the country how we should live.

    Meryl Streep playing Meryl Streep....Again, and It`s also one of the most boring movies of all time but when entertainers think their so omnipotent that people should follow their political opinions and vote the way they tell them to then they truly are living in their own legends in their mind.... Ms Streep and Hanks de Niro etc can continue to live in the sun in their Palatial gated security controlled homes far away from the poverty stricken social housing of middle America yet they believe that these people living in poverty should listen to them preach to them about Trump !!!! these actors are delusional at best, middle America are not the deplorables of Hillary`s rhetoric she should have looked closer to home.

    Is it me or does her character have a slightly toned down Miranda Priestley vibe to her? i MUST see this film!

    The amazing thing is that the movie shows that the press didn't investigate in depth because they were friends with democrats, Nixon was an idiot but it was JFK and Johnson who lied and extended the war. That's what they movie shows, and the same thing happened with Obama and the media.
    They didn't cover as they were supposed to do, because they were all friends with them. Fast and furious one of the worst things Obama did, Scandal of the IRS, etc., and the press failed to give a honest objective investigation into it.

    I always liked and respected Nixon and Thatcher. Two leaders that Meryl Streep has attacked.
    Meryl Streep has made it abundantly clear that she sides with the press. She thinks they inform people and are a force for good,
    but the truth is the press are poisonous biased manipulative liars and Meryl Streep is their biggest champion.

  • Alicia Parkhill

    Meryl has had a public voice and platform for decades and choose to keep quite about abuse up until it served her to speak out. That fact is all I need to know about her character! Being a fan of Meryl for so many years, of her incredible acting talent I feel sad now because nothing goes untouched by the hypocrisy? We think we understand or know celebrities but we are in the dark about what's really going on and how deeply entertainment equates propaganda. It always has but this intensity on individual actors will destroy careers possibly lives. I feel Meryl will be the first of many to bear the fallout of over politicized entertainment.

      Eva when she raced to give Roman Polanski a standing ovation, was it public knowledge he had raped a 14 year old girl? When she called Harvey Weinstein" god" at an award ceremony do you think it was because she didn't know anything about his nature and was pandering to his ego out of ignorance? Do you think her zip code keeping her from L A "gossip"negates her ability to judge a persons character after decades in the business? If you really believe she knew nothing you give her no credit as to being an intelligent person which I believe she is incredibly intelligent, and was complicit in best interest of her career.

    • EvaSofie
      EvaSofie 10 months ago +1

      Because you know for a fact she knew? Do you know she’s been vocal about women’s rights throughout most of her career? Probably not, because when she did speak out, although it would get some attention, it wouldn’t last long and would soon be forgotten. She is the type of woman Harvey Weinstein is afraid of. But he needed her for credibility, more than she ever needed him. So he had to prevent her from knowing anything. The fact that she doesn’t live in Hollywood, but all the way across the country, helped him too, since that meant she isn’t in many circles and doesn’t pay attention to gossip. Do you really think the woman who went up against the most powerful man in the world would keep quiet about the abuse of women? Come on.

    Actually, it's not hard to believe that a paper wouldn't print something at the request of the White House. During the Bush Administration, James Risen, who wrote for the New York Times, tried to warn America about the illegal surveillance of American citizens. The New York Times did not allow his articles to be published at the request of the White House! He later came out with a book detailing many of the unlawful practices of that administration and won a Pulitzer Prize for it.

      Yes, it's supposed to be. But we've got this wacko in the White House right now who seems to think he can do and say whatever he wants. And sadly, there are also too many people in this country that don't know the US Constitution nor their history and only blindly follow the blathering blowhard. The fact that we have a sitting president who calls hard working journalists "fake news" is nothing short of disgraceful. But I have a sneaking suspicion that truth will win in the long run.

    I'm so over Meryl's whole "fake humility" thing. It was cute for the first 40 years of her career, by now everyone lauds her sufficiently and it is clear that she is pretty much the top in her field, I don't need her to go "Ow.. dear... no nono teehee. the... the... b- ... b-b-b-be-.... bes... t??! WHAAAT? no no no never me ... so good... no..." meanwhile raking in and demanding several million a movie or something, you know damn well you are the best. So over the fakeness. Find a different "charismatic" way to deal with the compliments, this one is old.

      +arman gabrielian Well, if she was a conservative, she wouldn't have been hanging around with a leftist degenerate Jew like Weinstein, and if she was a conservative, Hollywood would have never cast her in anything, and she'd be long gone from the movie business and nobody would ever know who she was.

    What an utterly vile hypocrite Meryl Streep is,in fact the whole room full of back slapping liberal Hollywood elite are,appauding Oprah and each other on #Metoo and #timesup etc now that the whole game has been exposed that they were complicit in staying silent about along with their dedicated press association that follow them around has been.
    They have to all join in with the act or they'll be tagged as involved and complicit though now,like they actually care about regular folk instead of their own success in their elite bubble
    Roman Polanski and Victor Salva are just the ones that got caught and convicted of raping children,but so many literally wined and dined with Weinstein,hopefully his outing will finally lift the lid of one of the world's worst kept secrets and many will face their consequences

      How do you know? Cause "there's no way she didn't know"? Get facts before slandering. Just cause she herself wasn't a silence breaker doesn't mean she was complicit in anyway. If we attack her, we might as well attack every other actress in Hollywood. And btw, you really gonna single her out for Polanksi? He's been working steadily since the charges, so you might as well attack every actor in all of his movies since, and the Academy for giving him best director for The Pianist
