For Meryl Streep, taking on the role of Violet Weston in the Weinstein co. film adaptation of “August: Osage County” was daunting because she knew how exhausting it would be to play the character’s gamut of emotional and physical problems.

As actors, Streep said, “this is what we really love. You’re dragged kicking and screaming into the house of pain, but you just really love being there, honestly.”

But the truth is, we have to commend this maturing beauty for keeping it classy even with a lot more edge. The cropped top could show far more skin, her skirt is surprisingly long, and a sexy moto jacket keeps her fair arms covered. In a world where Miley Cyrus is mostly »
