Meryl Streep and Don Gummer in Pictures, Just Because


There is much to admire about Meryl Streep—her 21 Oscar nominations, her three Oscar wins, her tireless advocacy for women’s rights, her faultless taste in eyeglasses—not least among them how visible she’s made the warmth and fullness of her personal life over the last several decades. Streep is no tortured artist, stranded in the deserts of her own genius; to the contrary, she’s often made her endless stream of premieres and award show appearances convivial family affairs, arriving with some combination of her four kids (musician Henry Wolfe and actors Mamie Gummer, Grace Gummer, and Louisa Jacobson) and her husband of nearly 44 years, the sculptor Don Gummer.

To help celebrate Streep’s birthday today—long live the queen, and long may she reign!—we take a look back at one of Hollywood’s longest (and most low-key) pairings. Needless to say, we absolutely want what they have.
