Quote of the Day – Meryl Streep on Kissing

The Oscar nominations came out yesterday. Yes, Meryl is nominated again, this time for her depiction of the “Iron Lady” Margaret Thatcher. While I haven’t seen the movie, I believe Meryl is extremely talented.

In her storied career, Streep has received 18 Academy Award nominations, winning two; 26 Golden Globe nominations, winning eight, more nominations than any other actor in the history of either award.

Her work has also earned her two Emmy Awards, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, a Cannes Film Festival award, five New York Film Critics Circle Awards, five Grammy Award nominations, a BAFTA award, an Australian Film Institute Award and a Tony Award nomination, amongst others.

So, in honor of yet another achievement, I add her to my little quote of the day fun. 🙂

One is obliged to do a great deal of kissing in my line of work: air kissing, [butt] kissing, kissing up, and of course actual kissing. Much like hookers, actors have to do it with people we may not like or even know. – Meryl Streep
