Meryl Streep and Don Gummer are separated, the information was confirmed by the actress’ agent in a statement to People magazine. The media reminds that the couple – celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary in September – rarely spoke about their private life.
“Don Gummer and Meryl Streep have been separated for six years, and although they will always care for each other, they have chosen to live apart,” Meryl Streep’s agent said in a statement to People magazine. On Saturday, the magazine’s website recalled that although the couple, who celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary in September, had not been seen in public since the gala Oscars in 2018, the actress wore her wedding ring on Friday when she received the Princess of Asturias Award.
Over the course of several decades, the winner of three Oscars and the renowned sculptor rarely spoke about their private lives. In a 2002 interview with Vogue magazine, Streep said: “There is no roadmap to starting a family: It’s always negotiation.” The statement was quoted by CNN on Saturday, recalling that the actress thanked her husband when she received the Oscar for the role of Margaret Thatcher in “The Iron Lady” in 2012. – First of all, I want to thank Don, because when you thank your husband at the end of the speech, they play music for him. I want you to know that you gave me everything I value in our life, she said.
