Meryl Streep

Despite watching endless cooking shows in preparation for her latest role, Meryl Streep is no whiz in the kitchen. The oscar-winner had a large chef’s hat to fill in her new film ‘Julie and Julia’, where she plays legendary chef Julia Child, but confesses she lacks any special culinary talent.

She says, “I cook okay. I cook every night, so every night is not great. I am really not as adept a cook as she was, especially with that rapid-fire knife.” Laughing, Meryl adds, “If I did that in my kitchen, everybody would run because there would probably be a lot of blood!”
