Meryl Streep Thanked Her Hubby, Her Makeup Artist But NOT Margaret Thatcher!

Uh oh!

Meryl Streep is taking some heat from the actual Iron Lady's closest companions.

The actress won her third Oscar (with fourteen OTHER nominations!) Sunday and she thanked her husband and makeup artist (for an award she felt guilty of winning).

But not Margaret Thatcher.

Lord Norman Tebbit, a political ally to Thatcher, stated that he wasn't surprised that Meryl forgot to honor the former prime minister.

Tebbit stated that "the film was about Meryl Streep, not Lady Thatcher" and if Thatcher acted like her movie's portrayal, she wouldn't have lasted very long in office.

To be exact, the Lord said Thatcher wouldn't have lasted six months!

This compounds The Iron Lady's earlier criticism for focusing on Lady Thatcher's dementia, not her politics.

Do U think Meryl's speech was a slight or just right?

Gorgeous!

Meryl Streep attended the London premiere of her Oscar-worthy film The Iron Lady on Wednesday night.

Meryl walked the blue carpet, a nod to Margaret Thatcher's trademark blue outfits and the Conservative party's color, in a Stella McCartney dress with a black and blue Lindsey Thornburg coat.

Filed under: Meryl Streep

meryl streep newsweek

Meryl Streep is a goddess, plain and simple.

Woman werks it better than almost any actress in town without doing it the hardest. She's just a bad b*tch all around; we can't get enough of her!!

And U know we're getting ourselves a copy of this Newsweek magazine! She's donned in The Iron Lady gear to invoke Margaret Thatcher. Hot!

U should pick up a copy too! Marg used to always do interviews for the political mag, so this issue is kind of a wink to the lovely lady.
