She does look peasant-like. It’s why she’s believable in so many roles.

She and Glenn still look like themselves.
Unlike a lot of their contemporaries like Anjelica Huston or Jessica Lange.

She has normal hair for her age, but doesn't wear wigs.

As Truman Capote famously said, just as Meryl was taking off and the New York critics were all lining up to hype her endlessly...
"Patrician beauty, my ass. She has the face of a chicken."

Meryl looks very Polish in that photo -- like she could be yanking tubers out of the ground right next to Martha Stewart.

Yeah, she's so peasant-like with that porcelain skin and those high cheekbones

R18, that is not porcelain skin.

I'll be so glad when she retires.

R21, I doubt she'll ever retire. She'll probably pass away on set.

She did win an Oscar for playing a Polish Holocaust survivor.

The face of a Van Eyck Madonna.

I always found her face uniquely unpleasant. Pointy, sharp, and the features pulled in too tightly to the middle.
As a child I didn't understand why she was an actress, or how she ever looked in the mirror and thought "this face should be in pictures!"
I know that there are those who find her attractive, but still can't see it myself.
To each his own.

Basic. Nothing extraordinary about her face just that she's blonde and that seems to cover a lot of ground for a lot of people.
You should see the blonde women that straight guys think are gorgeous. Very basic, but the blonde hair puts them into a special category as far as the guys are concerned.

Believe it or not Meryl was in the running (very briefly) for the female lead in the King Kong movie that Jessica Lange eventually got. She was in the producer's office with his son (who brought her to his father as a candidate) and she heard the father say in Italian (which she understood) to his son, "Why did you bring me this ugly woman?" Somehow I can't see Kong going ape over Meryl. Jessica, yes, Meryl, no.

She came to fame where it was more about substance. She was quite lovely for that era. Women weren't expected to look like sluts on display then. They were still making real movies at the time. Not genre reproductions for everything.

To be fair she’s never held herself out as being a beauty.

I forgave Sharon Stone for saying I look like an unmade bed. I even gave her a bit part in one of my movies!

At least she looks normal for her age, and isn’t trying to look like a teenager like most actresses over 50 do today.

Even at her youngest and "most luminous" Meryl wouldn't make it past the receptionist in most casting offices nowadays. The 70s were, ahem, a magical era in film and TV.
