Los Angeles, July 30 (IANS) Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep used to fear that every film would be her last.

The 67-year-old’s biggest concern was that she wouldn’t be cast in any more movies. But she says she is proud that she still boasts a successful career 27 years later, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Speaking to the Wall Street Journal magazine about her fears for the future, Streep said: “And if you’re lucky you can keep working. But everybody has troughs and dismal times – every single person.

“I remember as I was hovering around 40, I thought each movie would be my last, really. And all the evidence of other 40-year-old women at that time – this is 27 years ago – would lead you to believe it was over.”

Streep further shared that she would have been “unhappy” if her acting career had come to an end because of her age.

“On a certain level you don’t have any choice – you’re unhappy if you’re not doing it, so you’re compelled in a certain way,” she said.
