When December cover star Meryl Streep agreed to come to the Vogue offices to be interviewed by Anna Wintour, the questions were swirling. Who would wear the highest heels? The darkest glasses? In fact, the pair had a frank and far-ranging conversation filled with humor and insight. Streep came to discuss her role as Wintour’s friend, the late Katharine Graham, in Steven Spielberg’s new movie,The Post, about the Watergate crisis. Just like Streep, Graham, the publisher of The Washington Post, knew how to say—and do—the right thing at the right time.
That was then. This is now: Connecting the dots was a given. Much is revealed in the interview above, between the Pentagon Papers and the Mueller investigation, sexual harassment, female empowerment, and what Meryl and her daughters talk about around the dining room table. Key questions: Will either of these ladies run for office? And which was the most challenging female character Streep ever played? The devil is in the details.
