Meryl Streep covers Vogue magazine for first time

Meryl Streep may be considered one of the finest actresses around, yet she says she believed her career was over 20 years ago.

Miss Streep, 62, tells Vogue magazine she was offered three different roles as a witch after turning 40. She thought it meant women in her age group were “grotesque on some level” and told her husband, “It’s over.”

Miss Streep graces the cover of Vogue magazine for the first time in the January edition and jokes in the magazine that she’s the “oldest person” to do so.

Next she plays former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the new film “Iron Lady.” She portrays Mrs. Thatcher from age 49 to 85. The film opens Jan. 13.

The January issue of Vogue goes on sale Dec. 20.

Lohan says she should have listened to advisers

Lindsay Lohan says she should have listened to her advisers, but her stubbornness led to many of her well-documented legal problems.

Miss Lohan makes the comments in the January-February issue of Playboy magazine, which features mostly nude photos and a brief story about the starlet.

Pictures from the issue leaked online Friday, prompting the magazine to release the issue early on its website.

The story refers to Miss Lohan’s infamous bad behavior - which includes two drunken-driving arrests, five jail sentences and five rehab stints - as youthful misadventures.

Miss Lohan returns to court Wednesday to update a judge on her compliance with strict new probation requirements, which include working at a morgue.

“Why do I have to be in my underwear next to the most physically perfect person on the planet? Why couldn’t I have been next to John Goodman or Michael Moore in their underwear?” Mr. Oswalt said. “It was a dream that turned into a nightmare.”
