      Peas in Our Time Having made an impassioned pitch for soft diplomacy rather than strong sanctions against Iran: “My preference is for peace and diplomacy, and this is one of the reasons why I’ve sent a message to Congress that now is not the time for us to impose new sanctions; now is the time for us to allow the diplomats and technical experts to do their work. We will be able to monitor and verify whether or not the interim agreement is being followed through on, and if it is not, we’ll be in a strong position to...

    Big-time movie producer Harvey Weinstein revealed Wednesday that he is making an anti-gun movie with actress Meryl Streep that is going to make the National Rifle Association “wish they weren’t alive.” During an interview with Howard Stern on his radio show, Weinstein said the new full feature drama will take the NRA “head on.” He also said he’s never owned a gun and never will. “I don’t think we need guns in this country. And I hate it. I think the NRA is a disaster area,” Weinstein said. After first telling Stern that he shouldn’t reveal too much about his...

    Movie producer Harvey Weinstein announced for the first time on Howard Stern’s radio show that he is making a full feature drama to try to destroy the National Rifle Association. Mr. Stern asked Mr. Weinstein on Wednesday whether he owned a gun. The Hollywood heavyweight replied that he did not and never would. “I don’t think we need guns in this country. And I hate it,” the producer said. “I think the NRA is a disaster area.” Mr. Weinstein then revealed his secret project about the gun rights group. “I shouldn’t say this, but I’ll tell it to you, Howard,”...

    LOS ANGELES – Meryl Streep’s Tuesday speech in which she labeled the late Walt Disney a “gender bigot” is being criticized by some who worked with the Hollywood legend, and others who have a much different take on the Hollywood giant’s life. Walt Disney animator Floyd Norman, who worked alongside the mogul on films including the classic “Sleeping Beauty,” told us Streep is simply misinformed. “I arrived at Disney in 1956 as a young artist. Surprisingly, there were a fair number of young women working in the art department. I too had heard that women were not allowed in animation....

The "August: Osage County" star called out Disney as both sexist and anti-Semitic while presenting the best actress prize to Thompson at the National Board of Review awards in New York.
  • Meryl Streep Takes on Margaret Thatcher in “The Iron Lady”

    “We shall stand on principle or we will not stand at all,” Margaret Thatcher (Meryl Streep) states late in the new film, “The Iron Lady.” The movie- which explores the life of the masterful former prime minister of England—attempts to show the conservative politician in both her glory and in her latter years. In doing so, it successfully portrays Thatcher’s political successes but stumbles along the way by focusing too much on her health after her tenure as prime minister. The film begins with Thatcher as a retired politician stumbling through life as a confused older woman and believing that...

    The Telegraph ^ | 2/8/2011
    The first picture has been released of Meryl Streep playing Baroness Thatcher in The Iron Lady, the forthcoming Hollywood film about the former British prime minister's life. The biopic, which also stars Jim Broadbent as Lady Thatcher's husband Sir Denis, began filming at the end of January. It is being made by Pathe and Film4 and is directed by British director Phyllida Lloyd, who is best known for her theatre work. Streep, one of the most successful actresses in Hollywood, was seen as one of the few women capable of convincingly playing Lady Thatcher. However, producers faced concerns over how...

    Although the prospect of Meryl Streep playing Margaret Thatcher may have pleased some admirers of the Conservative former prime minister, her children have been horrified to discover more about the film. Mandrake hears that the screenplay of The Iron Lady depicts Baroness Thatcher as an elderly dementia-sufferer looking back on her career with sadness. She is shown talking to herself and unaware that her husband, Sir Denis Thatcher, has died.

    Hollywood actress Meryl Streep has admitted that the only person she has been star-struck by is US President Barack Obama. Streep, 60, usually maintains her composure when she meets other actors she respects, but she has admitted that she was in awe of US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama when she went to White House. "I went to the White House and was star-struck by our president and first lady. Although I was also impressed by Bruce Springsteen who was there as well," said Streep.

    "Mama Mia" is an okay musical, probably not for our heterosexual brethren. It does feature pop music from my era, has beautiful scenery, great acting, intriguing characters. Two things, "Dancing Queen" will roll around in your head for a month after seeing it and the plot line, folks, it's really, really uncomfortable.

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Meryl Streep, who plays a tyrannical fashion magazine editor in "The Devil Wears Prada," insists she didn't draw on Vogue editor Anna Wintour for her character -- on the contrary, she based it on men she knows. The film is based on the best-selling book, which sent shock waves through the fashion world in 2003 with its barely disguised fictional version of the inner workings of Vogue magazine, written by former Vogue staffer Lauren Weisberger. In the book, the editor of Runway magazine, Miranda Priestley, is portrayed as unreasonable and bullying to her staff. In the...

    Flipping channels almost always ends up being a big mistake. If I stray too far from ESPN, or the serene comfort of the GLOF (Gorgeous Ladies of FOX), I almost always end up seeing something that is best left unwatched. Friday night was no different, as I ran across Meryl Streep talking Jesus with Katie Couric. It was a theological reactor meltdown, resulting in a verbal radiological release that would have had the real Silkwood running in fear of re-contamination. Having told myself months ago that I wouldn't encroach upon the frustrating subject of the Hollywood left in the foreseeable...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - For weeks, the rumor mills have been working overtime to claim that Oscar winner Meryl Streep based her portrayal of the Machiavellian mom in the remake of "The Manchurian Candidate" on Hillary Clinton. The rumors are not even remotely true, Streep told reporters over the weekend. But the actress added that she was imitating a person that no one has yet guessed. Streep plays a U.S. senator intent on seeing her son become president, assuming the villainous role played by Angela Lansbury in the original 1962 political thriller. The remake from Paramount Pictures is slated to...

Jaffee, July 13, 2004 Home   Search   Forum   Terms John Kerry and John Edwards both looked at the same intelligence presented to President Bush, and they voted for the Iraq war. Then both Kerry and Edwards voted against an $87 billion funding package for our troops in Iraq. How could they be both for and against the war? Kerry, the great flip-flopper, has even gone so far as stating, I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it. Several weeks before Kerry voted against the $87 billion bill,...
