"Meryl's A Terrible Neighbor" Say The Whiners

Categories: Meryl Streep

Sour grapes make for flat champagne once again.

Bitter neighbors in Salisbury, Connecticut, are claiming that Meryl Streep is more "Nasty Lady" than "Iron Lady."

According to this write-up, "She lives on a very big multimillion dollar property in the area, but she doesn't give back."

Apparently the three-time Oscar winner doesn't stop and talk to total strangers. How awful!

And one time ages ago, "she wouldn't talk to the other moms" at the school where Meryl's daughter Grace went.

"Then when she did, she snapped at them."

Oh, please. Take this all with a grain of coke because, first of all, the neighbors aren't named, interestingly enough.

And secondly, WTF is the greatest actress of her generation supposed to do?

Prance through town and stop at each doorstep to say, "Hey! My name's Meryl. What's yours?" and strike up a conversation.

With everyone on the planet wanting a piece of her, is she supposed to skip gaily down the main street signing autographs, shaking hands, and begging people to come over for tea and crackers?

Every time someone drills into her with their burrowing eyes, should she say, "Howdy! Come over and stroke my Oscars"?

It is to laugh.

They should all just bow and scrape and keep moving.

I used to see Meryl frequently in Balducci's, when she lived in the Village. She usually shopped with an older woman & she was always low-key but very nice to people who recognized her, somewhat shy, an all-around gracious person. And her hosting of BULLY the other night is another example of Streep's loveliness.

Oh no, don't be conned by the "universally loved" con,  it's always been known within the industry that Meryl's a complete cunt, second only to Dame Judi Dench.

Everyone who has worked with her and other people who have met her say that she is friendly, amusing and gracious.  Whenever I see her being interviewed or hear others talk about her, love, joy and grace shows in bucketloads.  Is everybody wrong and this one neighbour right - I don't think so.  I will always love her both as an actress and a person.  The nameless author of these slanderous comments is the real "nasty neighbour" - never Meryl Streep.

Amen. I have met and talked with her 3 times and she has been nothing but friendly and gracious. Perhaps the person who complained was the 'nasty' one with the nasty attitude. You get what you give sometimes.

a sprawling estate in the suburbs = not wanting to be closeto the neighbors.

Honestly. This so called neighbour of Meryl's should seriously correct herself. Calling Meryl nasty is like taking candy from a baby. Should never be done. It's just plain wrong. Meryl is a goddess, a queen she is simply just Meryl Bloody Streep. She is amazing.

The real gossip is her "open" marriage. How come no one ever talks about that?

Yeah it's all so vague and bitter it sounds like THEY'RE the mean ones.

Okay, maybe she is 'mean', but that person was very short on details. She 'snapped', but it doesn't say what she said. If you don't have anything to say beyond vague accusations, what's the point? Where is it written you're required to associate with your neighbors.

I happen to live near her in Greenwich Village, and she has always been very open and pleasant in my experience with her.....totally down to Earth.
