I admire Meryl Streep and I also admire this charming interview by David Toussaint because she sounds just like you would want her to be–wacky and wonderful and one of a kind–Meryl Streep: more dame than Dame:

What’s remarkable about Streep’s persona is her absolute lack of persona. She’s not anyone because she’s everyone, which is a good way of saying she knows who she is. It also helps to understand why she can play just about anything, assuming you scratch the “just about.” During the interview, when someone remarks, as an aside, that Altman likes shooting more pages than listed for that day, so he can say he’s ahead of schedule, Streep murmurs “Oooh,” like she’s finally been let in on a secret that someone like, say, Meryl Streep, would have known all along.
