- Meryl Streep joined Season 2 of Big Little Lies, which is currently airing on HBO.
- The cast of Big Little Lies has just celebrated Streep's 70th birthday in a series of Instagram tributes.
- Streep's performance as the late Perry's grieving mother, Mary Louise Wright, has already been met with a plethora of memes, and calls for an Emmy nomination.
In her role as Mary Louise, Perry's mother, Streep has already made a huge impression on viewers, despite the fact that only two episodes have aired to date. From her sandy wig, to her unsettling scream, to her exceedingly vicious, yet unbelievably calm, takedowns of Reese Witherspoon's Madeline, Streep has made herself invaluable.
To celebrate the 70th birthday of the iconic actress, Reese Witherspoon shared a photo of Streep, along with the caption, "Happy Birthday, Meryl! Sending so much birthday love to this talented creature! 🎈 🎂 💫What a privilege and an honor to work with you on @biglittlelies! (Check out my Insta-story if you want to see the cast of BLL share their favorite #merylstreep movies ! )":
Laura Dern shared a touching tribute to her co-star on Instagram. She wrote, "This girl became my legend. And I do declare today an international holiday. Muse Day! Here here! Then I actually got to not only meet my hero but work with her. I thank the Gods. #merylstreep":
Meanwhile, the official Instagram account for Big Little Lies shared the adorable message, "happy birthday to the inimitable #merylstreep 💗🌊 #BLL2":
And in the coming weeks, Streep's Big Little Lies performance promises to be all that we hoped it would be, and much more.
