As a senior at Bernards High School in Bernardsville, N.J., Streep was a popular cheerleader. "It was my first real characterization," she later joked. "I played blond homecoming queen for a few years."
"Acting is the perfect profession for me," said the first-time Oscar winner for Kramer vs. Kramer, "because I get bored easily. I have a very short attention span."
Already considered the best actress of her generation, Streep starred in Silkwood and picked up her second Academy Award for Sophie's Choice.
Streep went brunette for her much-lauded portrayal of Baroness Blixen in Out of Africa.
"I was blind to the book's power," the actress said of her first reading of The Bridges of Madison County. Director/costar Clint Eastwood convinced her to play the role, which required her to gain a few pounds. "I don't think anybody has shot a love story weighing as much as I did," she joked.
Nominated for The Bridges of Madison County, Streep attended the Academy Awards with her hair dyed to its natural shade of light brown.
Back to blond, the veteran actress won her second Emmy for Angels in America.
60 and more glamorous than ever, the veteran actress was a box-office smash in Julie & Julia and It's Complicated.
Nominated twice (in the same category!), Streep picked up her seventh Globe for her role in Julie & Julia.
Streep wore tinted specs to celebrate the 150th anniversay of her alma mater, Vassar College.
Once again an Oscar nominee, Streep is sporting a versatile layered shoulder-length do.
At 63, the one-time high school cheerleader clearly takes care of herself, as evidenced by her glowing skin.
The Oscar winner opts for a half updo on the red carpet.
With medium-length locks and subtle makeup, Streep was a natural beauty while in London for the BFI London Film Festival.
Smiling brightly, Streep looked to be glowing while attending the U.K. film premiere of Florence Foster Jenkins at Odeon Leicester Square.
Streep looked refreshed and radiant with a pale pink lip and a complementary blush.
