Which Meryl are you?

Suddenly Meryl’s on the telly which is cause for much, much, much unbridled celebration. Welcome into our homes Meryl, you terrifying mother of a wifebeater. Which gets us thinking… where do we sit in the Meryl spectrum? On the Meryl rainbow? Surely you must be asking yourself… which Meryl am I???

Kramer vs Kramer Meryl

You are in desperate need of finding yourself. You’ve always wrestled with the concept of responsibility – but you do look incredible in a belted mac.

The Devil Wears Prada Meryl

“Let them hate me, so long as the fear me,” the emperor Caligula is once alleged to have said and it is clear that this is a sentiment that really speaks to you.

Julie & Julia Meryl

VERY good at cooking. And bottomlessly cheerful.

The French Lieutenant’s Woman Meryl

It’s true, you do look great in a cape.

Florence Foster Jenkins Meryl

“You’re an amazing singer!” said no one ever.

Mamma Mia Meryl

So you were once a bit of a slapper? Weren’t we all?

Into the Woods Meryl

Wow, you really can be such a grumpy old witch sometimes.

Big Little Lies Meryl

You feel deeply suspicious of everyone – especially people who aren’t very tall. You are blind to the flaws of your loved ones and sometimes find yourself screaming in the middle of dinner. Just screaming.  All this – and there’s something slightly funny about your teeth…
