"How many actors can say they’ve done not one but two movie musicals with Meryl Streep?!? She and I were so thrilled. Meryl could not be more fun to hang out with.”
*Christine Baranski about reuniting her Mamma Mia! co-star Meryl Streep, who plays The Witch in the film ‘Into the Woods’
"Meryl Streep’s amazing, like a force of nature. She doesn’t behave like a star and is hard working, with the energy of ten people and endlessly creative. She was incredibly supportive of [director] Phyllida Lloyd who had never directed a film. Films can be very blokeish so it was hard for her to plough her own furrow. Meryl really backed her up and when she was getting letters from Hollywood saying ‘do this, do that’ Meryl said:
'just shred 'em'.”
Misty Upham’s tragic death has prompted some of her film co-stars to issue public condolences.
Meryl Streep, who played the matriarch of the family for which Upham served as a caretaker in August: Osage County, told The Hollywood Reporter,
“So so sad to hear this news — all our thoughts are with her family and with her beautiful spirit.”
REST IN PEACE, MISTY!
Maybe your soul will find peace at last…
"As there begins to be less time ahead of you, you want to be exactly who you are, without making it easier for everyone else. I’m not sure I ever was really comfortable swanning around as a girl, anyway."
