Meryl Streep on Playing the Anti-heroine in Don’t Look Up, “We’ve Become Accustomed to Loving Horrible People”

Veteran Hollywood star Meryl Streep will be seen playing President Orlean, who knows how to navigate her way around the system, in the upcoming satirical science fiction comedy ‘Don’t Look Up’. Netflix’s upcoming satirical science fiction black comedy ‘Don’t Look Up’ tells the story of two low-level astronomers, who must go on a giant media tour to warn mankind of an approaching comet that will destroy the earth.

The film will feature Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio in lead roles as the astronomers. The rest of the cast is no less important as it features Rob Morgan, Jonah Hill, Timothée Chalamet, Ariana Grande, Cate Blanchett and the legendary icon Meryl Streep.

Streep talks about her role in the film and says the anti-heroine is much less common and that people have become accustomed to loving horrible individuals. Talking about her role and how there’s been a rise in powerful female lead characters, Meryl said, “We’ve become accustomed to loving horrible people. The anti-heroine is much less common.”

She added: “Take ‘The Devil Wears Prada’. Miranda Priestly is one of those people who are disagreeable, but I understood her more because she had such a burden on her. But President Orlean wears the burden of leading the country very lightly. She hardly gives a second thought to it. It’s really about self-aggrandizement.”

Check out the trailer for Don’t Look Up below:

The film is written, directed and produced by NBC’s Saturday Night Live’s head writer Adam McKay. With Academy award-winning cast helming the upcoming movie, the expectations are truly very high.

‘Don’t Look Up’ will land up on Netflix for worldwide viewing on December 24, 2021. You can read the trailer analysis of the movie, here.
