Streep, now 62, tells Vogue magazine she was offered three different roles to play a witch after turning 40. She believed it meant women in her age group were 'grotesque on some level', and told her husband "It’s over".
Streep graces the January cover of Vogue fashion and lifestyle magazine for the first time and jokes in the magazine she’s the “oldest person” to do so.
Next, she plays the former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the new film "Iron Lady". She’ll portray Thatcher from age 49 to 85. The film opens January 13.
