I think we forget sometimes that, while she isn’t beautiful or hot, Meryl Streep has amazing cheek bones and is just  elegant.  And I don’t know that she is matched by any other living actress.  She is simply amazing.  She was on Letterman not too long ago, telling him how hard it was for her to get roles in the beginning because she wasn’t a classic beauty and how outspokenly rude and insulting casting directors would be to her face about it.  The good news is, she has certainly gotten the last laugh on those assholes.  Good luck at the Oscars, lady!
