6 things Meryl Streep and Elizabeth Warren have in common on their 66th birthdays
Two stars -- one of Hollywood, one political -- are both celebrating a birthday Monday as actress Meryl Streep and Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren turn 66. Both women have accomplished a great deal their respective fields and proved that women can take on just about anything.
Meryl Streep is a multiple award-winning actress that has done far more than just that. Among the various awards, she has used her platform to express her beliefs, political views, and ushered in ways to promote the right kind of change.
Elizabeth Warren has become a political maven, one who quickly rose from a life in higher education to creating the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Currently, she represents Massachusetts in the U.S. Senate. She's become so popular among Democrats that a draft campaign was started to try to woo her into the 2016 race for the White House, which she declined repeatedly.
In honor of their birthdays, we collected a short list of the six things Elizabeth and Meryl have in common.
1.) Both are feminists
Meryl and Elizabeth have both been vocal about their stances on feminism. They want men and women to be treated equally. They want equal pay for equal work.
2.) Both are Ivy league ladies
Meryl graduated from Vassar College and then attended Yale's School for Drama, which is where would soon learn the tricks of the trade to becoming of one the greatest actresses of our time. Elizabeth Warren was a professor at Harvard Law school where she focused on bankruptcy law. Wonder what would have happened if Elle Woods went to her class?
3.) They're politicians (at least in the movies)
Elizabeth has been a member of the Senate since 2012. Some still hope Hillary Clinton might ask her to be VP? While Meryl hasn't been a politician, she played one of the strongest female politicians in history: starring as juggernaut Margret Thatcher in "The Iron Lady," for which she won her third Oscar.
4.) Both are blondes
These two amazing ladies are blonde headed power women. In case anyone still thought there was truth to that old myth of a "dumb blonde."
5.) Both support Hillary Clinton
Meryl has stated her love for Hillary, see their selfie below. As for Elizabeth, she has said numerous times that she is a fan of Hillary's, and it doesn't hurt that they've worked together either. Let's imagine the ticket: Hillary Clinton - President, Elizabeth Warren - Vice President, and then perhaps Meryl Streep joins in a cabinet role. Her fans would certainly love it.
6.) Both have been in movies
Meryl's acting resumé is extensive and impressive -- with numerous hits and critically acclaimed roles in addition to an almost countless number of awards, but Elizabeth's made it on the silver screen too. She was in a Michael Moore documentary and also had a role in "Maxed Out: Hard Times, Easy Credit and the Era of Predatory Lenders," which is definitely a field she knows a thing or two about.
Happy birthday, ladies!
