22 JUNE 2014

Happy birthday, Meryl Streep! As the Oscar-winning actress turns 65, HELLO! Online take a look at what the stars have in store for Meryl and you...

All the best organisations have hierarchies. This person is in charge of that person. That person is in charge of this one. There are ranks that can be risen to and titles that can be earned. Why are such marks of status so appealing to so many people? Because they pander to our passion to progress. And perhaps, too, because it is cheaper to give someone a posh new job title than a substantial pay rise. So where, in your emotional life, do you now stand in a particular pecking order? Be in no doubt, you're the tops!

Read your horoscope for today.

Meryl Streep

An American film, TV and theatre actress, Meryl Streep is one of the industry's best-loved stars and widely regarded as one of the best actresses of all time.

Born in 1949, Meryl attended college before gaining a Master of Fine Arts at Yale School of Drama. Later she worked on several stage productions and was nominated for a Tony award for her 1976 performance in Tennesse Williams' play 27 Wagons of Cotton.

By 1979 she had begun to star in big screen productions and in 1979 she won her first Academy Award for best supporting actress for her work in the critically acclaimed Kramer vs. Kramer. The following year she won her first BAFTA – Best Actress for The French Lieutenant's Woman.

The screen star went on to win two more Oscars for Sophie's Choice and The Iron Lady, and over her career which has spanned five decades has gained a further 14 nominations. She also has 12 BAFTA nominations under her belt as well as one win for The Iron Lady, eight Golden Globe Awards with a further 20 nominations, and five Grammy nominations.

Meryl lived with her partner, actor John Cazale for three years until his death in March 1978, before marrying sculptor Don Gummer later that year. The couple have four children together.

A spokesperson for the National Women's History Museum
, Meryl has donated a significant amount of money (including her fee for The Iron Lady) and hosted numerous events for the museum. She has established two scholarships for students at the University of Massachusetts Lowell - the Meryl Streep Endowed Scholarship for English majors, and the Janet Hertzberg Endowed Scholarship for math majors.
