Teaser! Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher in ‘Iron Lady’ (VIDEO)
One powerful woman is playing another! A teaser of Iron Lady has been released where Hollywood heavyweight Meryl Streep takes on the role of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
In the clip, two advisors are determining how they will tweak Margaret’s public image. Meryl as Marg responds to their suggestions, saying, “I may be persuaded to surrender the hat, but the pearls, however, are absolutely non-negotiable. That’s the tone that we want to strike.”
Meryl said of the role:
“I am trying to approach the role with as much zeal, fervor and attention to detail as the real Lady Thatcher possesses. I can only hope my stamina will begin to approach her own.”
