Hillary Clinton Wants Meryl Streep to Play Her in a Movie About Her Life

By Liz Kreutz

Jul 6, 2014

Actress Meryl Streep uses her iPhone to get a photo of her and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton following the State Department Dinner for the Kennedy Center Honors gala Saturday, Dec. 1, 2012 at the State Department in Washington.

There appears to be one choice for Hillary Clinton that is not a hard one: that is, which actress she would want to play her in a movie about her life. The former secretary of state, who is currently touring Europe promoting her new memoir, “Hard Choices,” is quite certain that if she could choose who would portray her in a film, actress Meryl Streep, 65, would be her top pick. “If I had a choice, it would be Meryl Streep, of course!” Clinton, 66, said, without any hesitation, during a video interview with the Guardian on Friday. The two powerful women have been pretty chummy over the years.

At a State Department Dinner for the Kennedy Center Honors gala two years ago, Clinton and Streep made headlines when they posed for a selfie together.

And Streep has even compared herself to the former secretary of state: “I find a lot of similarities,” Streep said at the Women in the World Summit in 2012. “We’re roughly the same age, we both have two brothers — mine are annoying — we both grew up in middle-class homes with spirited, big-hearted mothers who encouraged us to do something valuable and interesting with our lives.

We both went from public high schools to distinguished women’s colleges. … We both went on to graduate school at Yale.”

What a narcissist. She would have a meltdown when no one went to that piece of trash movie.

How about we wait until after her death to start re-writing history?

You couldn’t make Meryl Streep ugly enough to play a credible Hillary Clinton. She’d have to become a meth addict for a couple of years, then gain eighty pounds and get attacked by a crazed chimpanzee. And I doubt if she’d go to all that trouble.

Streep fell ill to Hollywood political madness years ago but she is still a striking beauty. Her Thighness can only wish she would have such a beauty portray her.

Someone more along the lines of Bella Abzug would be a more accurate likeness.

PS: I think Geniffer Flowers should play herself in her part.

Great more myth and hype from Hollywood. Palin’s film was more down to earth than Hillary’s would ever be.

How about Elizabeth (Fauxahontas) Warren—so good at playing fake. She looks a tad like Hellary plus she’s been anointed to be the next Hellary in waiting. What an honor for her to have the role. Or rolls-—— (’

A liberal bubblehead to play a liberal bubblehead. Hard to argue with that. But Streep is a good actor. She would have to be to make Hildebeest look sympathetic.

Only problem with Betty White is that she sounds too sweet no matter what.

Whoever plays Hillary needs to be a relentless, condescending, nasty, arrogant prick of a gal.

I’d love to see a movie about Hilary and Nancy Pelosi, as long as it is completely true and ends like Thelma and Louise.

The difference between Streep and Clinton is that the Defender of Benghazi is a very poor actress.

Jeanine Garafolo as Nanners Pealoozi. They look similar and both are loony toons equal.

I don’t care who plays them, as long as the factual ending has them driving off a cliff.

(Never did watch the ‘originals’ but picked it up on reruns - When they ‘hit’ the lotto they became the ‘Beverly Hillbillys’ without the class and stylish people.’

There are certain actresses that I simply cannot stand. Meryl Streep is one of them. Has nothing to do with her politics. The closest I can come to explaining it is calling them whiny voiced, insipid, blondes.
