We recently cuddled up over the holiday to watch The Devil Wears Prada, which features a hilarious performance by a bitchy Meryl Streep amid an otherwise trivial film about superficial, well-dressed fashionistas (we admit that the clothes were to die for). But the real breakout performance in the movie was not Streep’s acting, but rather her incredible face lift and other miscellaneous cosmetic maintenance jobs. The 57 year old actress of countless landmark films sported a very taut neck, flawless face virtually free of wrinkles, and refreshed eyes in the film and in recent promotional events for the film. This has led us to believe that Meryl had a face lift, neck lift, and in most likelihood an eyelid surgery. Additionally, we are quite sure that she’s done maintenance over the years via laser or chemical peels and the routine dermal injections such as Botox. Also of note, the plumpy cheekbones appear to be a trait of Meryl that she’s had for at least 10 years, so we are not sure if she’s had cheek implants or if it’s a natural feature. What is difficult to pin down is not the fact that Meryl Streep had cosmetic surgery, which she did, but rather when it happened.
Browsing through photos of Streep through the years, we came to the conclusion that the actress has had subtle procedures done all along her career, which is why her look in ‘Devil’ did not look overly done or artificial. If anything, we think Meryl looks stunning and wish that she would go public about it and give out her surgeon’s telephone number. The photo taken in June 2006 shows that Meryl has aged well with a little help from her plastic surgeon.
