Streep keeps children's lives private

November 25, 2002|Liz Smith

NEW YORK — "My children are not photographed and celebrated as my appendages ... as much as they'd love to be!"

So says Meryl Streep in the new Interview, a magazine overseen by the genius Ingrid Sischy. Streep says her four kids "would enjoy being photographed and on the cover of something. But I think it's terrible to do that. They're not publicized by me, so they retain a certain integrity as citizens of this country that I don't enjoy. I can't sue anybody for what they say about me. But my children can. And that's the way it should be. They should have their own lives!"

I love the British press. They report that Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant, who have the romantic comedy "Two Weeks Notice" coming any minute, have "driven the American media into a frenzy of excitement about what is really going on in their relationship."

Funny -- I haven't noticed any frenzy, have you? Bullock treats Grant as if he were a naughty child she has to keep under control. Both of them have constantly denied that they are anything but colleagues. I think we can take them at their word.
