Meryl Streep wins Oscar for portrayal of Iron Lady who had a healthy perspective on personal attacks...



Pin It

Well the Oscars have been awarded and Meryl Streep has taken home the little gold man for her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher, in The Iron Lady. A brilliant performance for sure - of a woman who had quite a unique way of looking at things.

She once said, "I always cheer up immensely if an attack is particularly wounding because I think, well, if they attack one personally, it means they have not a single political argument left."

A pretty healthy way of looking at the criticism she faced.

Check out this great scene from the movie - where she is being attacked in parliament for being too 'emotional' (a familiar comment about women in business? Still in 2012?)...







Great advice. 

Cheer up if it's not your content that's being questioned! 

As Madeline Albright said, "It's not personal, it's business".

But back to the movie - well done Meryl - you have the business of acting under control!

What do you think?
