Meryl Streep Gets Divorced

( – Meryl Streep has recently revealed a significant development in her relationship with husband Don Gummer. The celebrated Oscar winner and renowned sculptor have quietly ended their marriage of almost five decades more than six years ago.

According to a statement from Streep’s representative to Fox News Digital, “Don Gummer and Meryl Streep have been separated for more than 6 years, and while they will always care for each other, they have chosen lives apart.”

Despite their separation, Streep was seen wearing her wedding ring at the “Princesa De Asturias” Awards 2023 Ceremony last Friday. The last time the couple made a public appearance together was at the 2018 Oscars.

During the 84th Academy Awards, where Streep won Best Actress for her role in “The Iron Lady,” she took a moment to acknowledge Gummer in her acceptance speech. “First, I’m going to thank Don,” she began. ” . . . because when you thank your husband at the end of the speech, they play him out with the music, and I want him to know that everything I value most in our lives, you’ve given me.”

The couple’s history dates back to when Streep was mourning the loss of her late boyfriend and “Deer Hunter” co-star, John Cazale, who died of lung cancer. She later married Gummer in 1978, and they raised four children together—Henry, Mamie, Grace, and Louisa. They also became grandparents when their daughter Grace had a baby girl with Grammy-winning British musician Mark Ronson.

All of Streep and Gummer’s children have pursued careers in the entertainment industry, following in their mother’s footsteps. Grace has appeared in shows like “Mr. Robot,” “The Newsroom,” and “American Horror Story,” while Louisa stars in “The Gilded Age.” Henry pursued a music career under the stage name Henry Wolfe.

Streep, who has openly spoken about the challenges of motherhood, once expressed to The Washington Post that being a mother is more demanding than acting. She said, “Mothering. Definitely. Acting — that’s praise, money, fulfillment. Mothering — they don’t even say, ‘Thank you.’ They don’t even clear the table unless you say, ‘Excuuuse me.’ Real life, there’s no comparison to acting. I can’t really call acting work, since it’s secretly so fun. Even the difficult things; it’s satisfying to do the difficult things well.”
