Meryl Streep was recently accused of only acting in The Iron Lady for the benjamins.

A former aide of Margaret Thatcher, the film's subject, stated that The Iron Lady's "only value is to make some money for [Streep]."

Not so fast!

Meryl had actually cut her fee to $1 million and donated the proceeds to charity! Her earnings went to the National Women's History Museum last fall.

Girl power!

Meryl is currently in Asia promoting the film at the US-China Forum on the Arts and Culture in Beijing.

    Ahhhh, just give her the fucking Oscar already. We all know she's going to get it sight unseen, right ?

    I so admire her. She's a far cry from LaLohan.

    I feel like America is purposely mis-understanding the role of Margaret Thatcher and peoples opinions on her. The aid that said that wasn't saying that Meryl Streep is going to make a lot of money - they were saying the movie has no value. It is a piece of trash. Are you understanding this so far?
    You guys seem to think 'Iron Lady' means the same thing as 'Steel Magnolia' - WE call her the Iron Lady as a reference to the medieval torture device - The Iron Maiden. It's spiked on the inside and when you shut someone in it they are pierced by the spikes and slowly bleed to death in immense pain.
    She was a monster and did immense harm to my country. It's sickening to watch her being celebrated.

    The irony is that the stupid ex-aides have not even seen the film before they criticize it. They should be happy that Looney Tunes didn't produce the film and up-date the story to the current fact that old Maggie is senile and probably wears diapers just like the great god Ronnie ended up.

    Lots more here than we see on the surface
    Meryl still makes $$$$$ she takes the one million donation and deducts that from her much greater wealth, and gets tax breaks
    Also , no mention of what were the perks while filming, they many times can equal more in value than salary, and OH YES, does Meryl get a percentage of gross ????

    People from Thatcher's camp have to calm the fuck down and keep their pie holes shut before they actually SEE the movie.

    Re: MR Pete – You have to calm down baby, yeah, big actors like Meryl Streep DO make a lot of fucking money and is much richer than most of the people, but that's not the point. The fact that she could cut her check down to $1M and donate the rest is amazing considering she was supposed to make more than $5M (I'm guessing), how many other celebrities out there can actually do that?? You're expecting her to donate EVERYTHING and make only a few thousand bucks from every film she does??C'mon…

    She's doing it for the Oscar, not the money. Too bad she won't win this year. It's either Tilda Swinton, Kirsten Dunst, or Charlotte Gainsbourg

    The only people that have a problem with Thatcher are Occutards and similar types.
    .
    As far as Streep goes, she's got plenty of money and there is more than one way to make a fortune off a film. SALARY is NOT the only way.

    Re: ShoeWhore – HIGHLY UNLIKELY. STREEP HAS THE MOST NOMINATIONS OF ANY ACTRESS IN HISTORY BUT SHE ONLY HAS 2 OSCARS GIVEN THE NUMBER OF TIMES SHE HAS BEEN NOMINATED. TONS OF OTHER ACTRESSES HAVE 2 OSCARS. NOMINATIONS DOESNT MEAN SHIT UNLESS YOU WIN. SHE MIGHT BE NOMINATED AGAIN BUT SHE WONT WIN. NEXT.
