All hail Meryl Streep, America's national treasure!
We might not have a queen in America, but if we did, it would most likely be Streep, duh. The iconic actress is a legend in Hollywood for her decades upon decades of success and stunning performances on screen.
Now, the New Jersey native has reached another milestone...she's turning 70!
Back in 1976, Streep made her movie debut as a voice in an animated film and by 1978 she had her first big hit film on her hands with The Deer Hunter.
41 years later, the actress is a Hollywood staple, has the career others only dream of and what makes us love her even more is that she has sass and is always up for a laugh...even at her own expense.
The blonde beauty is graceful both on and off screen and she continually makes us feel less than, because let's face it, Meryl is winning at life and we're all just standing here trying to come close to her brilliance.
In honor of the Kramer vs. Kramer star's 70th birthday (where did the time go, right?!) we're taking a look back at her amazing and somewhat unbelievable career.
From Sophie's Choice, She-Devil and The Bridges of Madison County to Doubt, Mamma Mia! and The Devil Wears Prada, Streep has mastered the art of becoming another person on both television and in film and we're not worthy of her talent.
She is unlike anyone else in the acting world and that's proven by all of the roles she's been able to make her own over the past four decades. Plus, she's won three Academy Awards and been nominated for 21, so, like it or not, she's a pretty big deal.
Check out the birthday girl's most memorable film and TV roles throughout her career below and make sure to vote for the one you love most. It won't be easy, but it also won't be as hard as making an actual Sophie's choice...so get to voting.
PS: Happy birthday, Meryl, you'll forever be our Hollywood queen!
