Unlike many Hollywood celebrity couples we read about in the news where divorce has become a norm, the legendary Meryl Streep’s love story is far from unpleasant.
The 70-year-old icon has been married to her husband, Don Gummer for over 40 years and counting!
Streep had a difficult time before meeting Gummer. Her boyfriend at the time and co-star in Deer Hunter, John Cazale passed away from lung cancer in 1978.
Streep spent some time at her friend’s place in Canada before coming back to the apartment after Cazale’s passing. However, she would find herself kicked out of the place she had shared with Cazale when she returned.
Streep’s brother Harry would come over to help the actress out together with Don Gummer. 6 months later, Streep and Gummer were married in 1978.
Don Gummer is a sculptor, focusing on tabletop and wall-mounted in the very beginning which he later switched his interest to free-standing works in the mid-80s.
Meryl Streep and Don Gummer have 4 children, Henry Wolfe, Mamie, Grace and Louisa.
Gummer has been truly supportive of Meryl Streep’s career and has been by her side at many of her celebrated events including Award shows.
Now that you know the love story of Meryl Streep and Don Gummer, tune in to find out love stories of some couples that we will be talking to all this week at 7 on #TheLITEBreakfast.
