Here's the Meryl Streep Lifetime Original Movie the World Isn't Ready For

Here's the Meryl Streep Lifetime Original Movie the World Isn't Ready For

By Katey Rich

With her long-lasting marriage to Don Gummer, well-adjusted children, and wildly successful career, Meryl Streep is no one's ideal candidate for a Lifetime Original Movie tell-all. (Unless there are some behind-the-scenes stories from "Julie & Julia" we're just really not ready for.) So the closest we’ll ever probably come is this Funny or Die effort, starring Christina Applegate as Streep in the role she — nor anyone else — was certainly not born to play.

Funny or Die has yet to respond to our requests to borrow some of those wigs for the Meryl Streep-exclusive costume party we’ve been dreaming of throwing for years.
