Meryl Streep is a classy actress, but she sure says "fuck" a lot
Nice interview from an Australian paper with Streep on her two movies coming out this year, Prada and Prairie Home. But I noticed that she casually injects the word fuck into several responses where it just doesn't seem necessary. I guess that's an occupational hazard of show business. The interviewer's attitude is pretty snide, too (it's not a fluff-piece).

2. She was engaged to John Cazale
He was Fredo in the Godfather movies. He was an awesome actor and was lost way too soon. They were engaged while they were making The Deer Hunter. He died of cancer shortly thereafter. An interesting note about Cazale, every film he appeared in was nominated or won an Oscar for best picture.

7. He was definitely an excellent actor
The scene in "Dog Day Afternoon" when his character is speaking to Al Pacino: "Were you serious about what you said, about throwing bodies out, one-by-one? 'Cause if you were...I'm ready to do it."

Chilling.

4. She shops alot at Bed Bath and Beyond.
I know, because I've seen her there more than once with her daughter--
who happens to look alot like her.

She nonchalently inspects the merchandise, while her daughter sneers at anyone that comes too close.

i don't mind swearing as a form of expression, when expletives are warranted, but when it is over done, blech!

9. i have had similar requests made of me
people in general are enamored by my voice. i called a store one night and inquired about their closing time (five minutes till closing when i called), the owner of the store offered to stay open past closing cuz he liked my voice.

20. FWIW
nearly every woman I worked with in film/TV developed a 'mouth'. We thought it might be because you're surrounded by guys who use "fuck" as a noun, verb, adverb, adjective, pronoun - and excuse. :)
