Meryl Streep & Daughter Mamie Gummer Promote 'Ricki & the Flash' in New York City

Meryl Streep and Mamie Gummer strike poses as they attend the photo call for their new movie Ricki And The Flash held at Ritz Carlton Hotel on Sunday (August 2) in New York City.

The real-life mother-daughter duo was joined by their co-star, musician Rick Springfield.

Rick was endlessly kind and patient with me, and it must have been a colossal nightmare for him to hear me make the same mistake on the same chord for like a week,” Meryl told The New York Times about learning to play guitar. “It was almost as if Jonathan [Demme, the director] cast the band as much for their compassion as for their rock cred.”

FYI: Meryl is wearing a Derek Lam dress, Alexandre Birman shoes, and Norman Silverman Diamonds jewelry. Mamie is wearing a Maje dress and Nicholas Kirkwood shoes.

Meryl Streep & Carey Mulligan Star in 'Suffragette' Posters!

Meryl Streep, Carey Mulligan, and Helena Bonham Carter are fighting for their rights in these brand new posters for their film Suffragette.

Here’s a synopsis of the movie: Maud (Mulligan) is a working wife and mother whose life is forever changed when she is secretly recruited to join the U.K.’s growing suffragette movement. Galvanized by the outlaw fugitive Emmeline Pankhurst (Streep), Maud becomes an activist for the cause alongside women from all walks of life. When increasingly aggressive police action forces Maud and her dedicated fellow suffragettes underground, they engage in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse with the authorities, who are shocked as the women’s civil disobedience escalates and sparks debate across the nation.

The film will open on October 23 in limited release with a wider release planned for the weeks following.

Meryl Streep Urges Congress to Revive the Equal Rights Amendment

Meryl Streep has reportedly written a letter to each member of congress urging them to reinstate the now defunct Equal Rights Amendment.

“I am writing to ask you to stand up for equality — for your mother, your daughter, your sister, your wife or yourself – by actively supporting the Equal Rights Amendment,” the 66-year-old actress wrote. “A whole new generation of women and girls are talking about equality — equal pay, equal protection from sexual assault, equal rights.”

In addition to the letter, Meryl also sent a copy of “Equal Means Equal,” a book by ERA Coalition president Jessica Neuwirth.

The amendment was originally instated in 1972, but did not last more than a few years. The original amendment states, “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.”
