'Julie and Julia' actress makes transformation
Meryl Streep as Julia Child was just wonderful. She made me cry. It’s that same thing of watching a real person. There’s something sometimes where we think people’s goals are unattainable and then you watch Meryl take this very real character who makes something of her life by cooking. When you watch Meryl express all that — the joy and love — I found that very moving. It was that expression of personal achievement and the joy it brought her and the love she brought to it.
