Meryl Streep’s word of advice to aspiring actors.
“I think the most liberating thing I did early on was to free myself from any concern with my looks as they pertained to my work.”
– Meryl Streep (Award-winning Actress; holds the record for most Oscar nominations in Hollywood history)

There’s an unequivocal beauty in raw honesty.
