Four times Meryl Streep slayed us/you/everything
It’s a near-scientific fact that it’s impossible to dislike Meryl Streep. With Florence Foster Jenkins, she’s back in comedy mode, but it’s her unrelenting combination of smarts and sass that’ve won her an army of fans throughout the years. Let’s relive her best lines… Because why not? The Iron Lady Her turn as Maggie Thatcher certainly nailed the former PM’s icy-cold steel. “Many men have underestimated me before. This lot seem bound to do the same, but they will rue the day.”
The Devil Wears Prada
Arguably her most iconic role, her turn as fashion editor Miranda Priestly was equal parts withering and wonderful. “By all means move at a glacial pace. You know how that thrills me.”
Death Becomes Her You could take pretty much any line from this camp comedy classic, but her reaction to her frenemy’s demise is timeless bitchy brilliance. “She is? Oh. These are the moments that make life worth living.”
Julie & Julia When her middle-aged TV chef eloquently describes
cannelloni. “These damn things are as hot as a stiff cock.” Quite.
