Meryl Streep Covers 'Vogue' January 2012

Meryl Streep looks positively radiant on the cover of Vogue‘s January 2012 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (December 20).

Here’s what the 62-year-old legendary actress and star of The Iron Lady had to share:

On playing Margaret Thatcher: “With any character I play, where she is me is where I meet her. It’s very easy to set people at arm’s length and judge them. Yes, you can judge the policies and the actions and the shortcomings – but to live inside that body is another thing entirely. And it’s humbling on a certain level and infuriating, just like it is to live in your own body. Because you recognize your own failings, and I have no doubt that she recognized hers.”

On feeling strongly about the film: “Because the material embedded in it is a lot of what I’ve been thinking about. The themes in the film, which I don’t feel like underlining, have interested me for a while. And you never see these subjects covered in films normally, and so that was very thrilling.”
