Nightmare on Elm Streep…


How is it possible that I’ve never noticed Meryl Streep’s in A Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge? Probably because she isn’t – that rather stylish young lady is actually Kim Myers, parading around looking just like Streep in the same year that the latter got an Oscar nomination for Out Of Africa.

Still, if Meryl ever finds herself in need of a lookalike body double/decoy/replacement mirror, her luck’s in! I wonder if these two have ever been photographed together…

"I could write a blog, I have thoughts!"

Yesterday I waxed lyrical over Jodie Foster. Today… Amy Adams! Her beautiful, porcelain-pale countenance was probably the best thing about my review of 2007. And, to be fair, she’s normally the best thing about anything she appears in. Junebug, Enchanted, Drop Dead Gorgeous (we’ll gloss over this year’s train wreck, Night at the Museum 2).

Now, though, Amy may have met her match. She’s been paired with the inimitable Meryl Streep (herself, a whole other blog entry) for Julie & Julia. It’s a dramatic re-telling of Julie Powell’s book and features a frumped-up Adams (though she still twinkles) and a posh-as-cheese-and-biscuits Streep. It’s out in September, but the trailer’s up, so check it out right now. Hootfest!

Seriously, what are you still doing here? Go! Go! (And I promise my next post will be about something other than fantastic female actors. Maybe I’ll write about cheese. Or something.)
