meryl streep young

You saw her at the 2012 Academy Awards last night.

It’s Meryl Streep, who just won the best actress award at the Academy Awards for The Iron Lady in a stunning turn of “things everyone was absolutely expecting for six months, now.” As Ashley and I discussed we have some qualms with the movie, but since we love Meryl Streep and I have this long, weird love affair going with Margaret Thatcher (that admittedly has more to do with her persona than her politics) well, here is a picture of Meryl in her Vassar days. Since we can’t comment on her inner beauty on the basis of this photo, we’ll just say, wow, her bone structure is stunning.
