I thought I was too ugly to be an actress: Meryl Streep

Los Angeles, April 23:

Hollywood veteran Meryl Streep says at the start of her career she thought her looks weren't good enough to make her a success in the industry.

Scoring an Oscar victory thrice, Streep, 64, is the most nominated actress in Hollywood, having 18 nominations to her credit, reported E!Online.

"I was always in plays, but I thought it was vain to be an actress. Plus, I thought I was too ugly to be an actress. Glasses weren't fabulous then. Many of my friends woke up at 3 years of age and said, 'I have to be on stage'," Streep said.

"I never had that. I've always been an omnivore, interested in way too many things, but I found the one profession that fed all my appetites," she added.

For being over 50 in the entertainment industry, Streep said, "When I was 40, I was offered three witches in one summer. And I thought, 'OK, this is it."

"You turn 40, and oh my god.' The only reason I have a career at 64 is that I've had hits later in life. I've found that once certain movies are out, audiences aren't so age-phobic. They were willing, and they were happy," she added.
