Has Meryl Streep Had Plastic Surgery?
It is extremely unlikely that Meryl Streep will ever become a candidate for plastic surgery gone wrong!
In Hollywood circles and now the wider ‘blogosphere’, Meryl Streep is well known for her very negative stance towards any type of cosmetic or celebrity plastic surgery.
Meryl Streep was born on June 22nd, 1949 and, given her age, some may have expected the Oscar-winning actress to have at least tried a facelift (see facelift without surgery) in an effort to keep up with some of the younger A-list beauties that now get the top roles in the latest Hollywood productions.
Meryl made her screen debut as long ago as 1977 in The Deadliest Season and then later that year, her film debut in Julia. Following starring roles in Deer Hunter in 1978 and the Kramer vs Kramer in 1979, she was nominated and then won an Oscar for the latter. Meryl Streep is widely respected and revered as one of Hollywood’s all-time female actresses.
Meryl Streep Speaks Out Against Cosmetic Surgery
Back in 2008, Meryl criticized Hollywood celebrities of both sexes for going under the knife, arguing that there are indeed advantages to growing older in Tinseltown as different types of roles are offered. She would no doubt be critical, therefore, of Jane Fonda’s very public decision to have cosmetic enhancements (see also Jane Fonda).
“The good thing about getting older is that when they do cast you it’s often something interesting – you’re no longer asked to be the beautiful leading lady,” she said.
“When actors aren’t hired just for their matinee looks they are given the chance to play roles that “examine all the idiosyncrasies people have.”
Streep clearly understands that it is impossible to hold onto the smooth clear complexions of youth forever.
“I think you have to embrace getting older and celebrate life,” she advised.

So, Meryl Streep has vehemently denied ever having plastic surgery and has spoken out against it. Instead, she prefers to let the ageing process define the way she looks naturally and grow old gracefully.
For now at least, there is no story as far as Meryl Streep plastic surgery goes.
