Meryl Streep’s Career

Meryl Streep was born on June 22, 1949 in Summit, New Jersey. To many people’s surprise Streep was actually uninterested in acting most of her life. Though she played in a number of school plays, Streep was not interested in acting until playing a part in the play “Miss Julie” as Vassar College in 1969.

The drama professor at the college said that he didn’t think anyone ever taught Streep how to act. She was self taught. The professor said that she demonstrated an ability to be able to mimic accents and memorize her lines early on. Once she graduated from Vassar College in 1971 she went on to apply for her MFA at Yale School of Drama. At Yale she played multiple roles onstage and paid for her education by waitressing and typing.

She graduated from Yale in 1975 and went on to continue a career in theatre. In fact, Streep never wanted a film career. It was something that “just happened” to her. It wasn’t until two years later, in 1977 that Streep made her debut in the film industry. She played a small role opposite of Jane Fonda and Streep was sure she never wanted to act in a film ever again. However, one year later she landed her first leading role in a miniseries called “Holocaust.”

Streep had her “rise to stardom” in the 1980s and since then has starred in dozens of hit films and won various awards for the parts she’s played. She will truly leave a legacy in Hollywood with her work but what else does Streep have to offer? What is Meryl Streep’s net worth?

Unlike many celebrities, Streep doesn’t make a ton of money from endorsements. As one of the most influential people in Hollywood Streep has made a number of endorsements but she’s known for endorsing charities and people more than she’s known for endorsing products. For example, during the 2016 presidential election Streep endorsed Hillary Clinton. She’s also worked with dozens of charities and even donates millions of dollars each year (especially to women’s empowerment and women’s rights groups).

As previously stated, Streep has made the bulk of her wealth through her acting career, earning anywhere from $1 million to $10 million per film. According to The Richest, she also sold her townhouse in New York City a few years ago for $9.1 million (which significantly added to Meryl Streep’s net worth).

The actress also owns a home with her husband in a small town in Connecticut. She’s known for being down to earth, especially when it comes to material things. Although there are no current projects with Streep’s name on them there is no doubt we will continue to see her on the big screen and that Meryl Streep’s net worth will continue to climb in the years to come.
