Meryl Streep Makes A Good Thatcher

Tuesday, February 8 by

Proving that there’s no woman alive or dead that she can’t imitate with authenticity, Meryl Streep has morphed into former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

Pathé UK has released a first look of Streep as The Iron Lady. Now in her second week of filming, Streep hopes to do justice to the character.”I am trying to approach the role with as much zeal, fervour and attention to detail as the real Lady Thatcher possesses – I can only hope my stamina will begin to approach her own,” says Streep.

Based off a shoulder-pads and hair helmet basis alone, I’d say she’s nailed it. Check out this side-by-side comparison.

I doubt there’s another actor alive who could pull this off as well. Except for that guy who played Emperor Palpatine. (Deadline)
