Meryl Streep Biography
Meryl Streep was born Mary Louise Streep in June of 1949 in Summit New Jersey. Streep grew up in the Bernardsville, New Jersey area and even as a youngster, she loved to show off in front of the camera. She was chosen to sing at a school recital, which caused her to have opera lessons at the age of 12. However, even though she was talented, she didn’t enjoy singing opera and decided that she did not want to do anything she didn’t enjoy.
Streep attended Vassar College, then the Yale School of Drama. She made her film debut in 1977 in “Julia” and a year later, she received the first of her 19 Academy awards for The Deer Hunter.
