Meryl Streep on relationship success
Meryl Streep and her husband are the "perfect odd couple".
The 'Into the Woods' actress has been married to sculptor Don Gummer - with who she has four children - for 36 years and says their union works well because they accept one another's differences.
She said: "We're kind of the perfect odd couple. Don is a man of few words - I'm the one who keeps up a constant stream of chatter in the house.
"He listens very patently and then goes back to his work.
"He also loves me as I am, eager and overactive, even at this age.
"He's the definition of the introverted, introspective artist. I'm very expressive and more exuberant. We complement each other beautifully that way."
The 65-year-old actress is incredibly proud of her family and never feels like she sacrificed any part of her career to raise her kids.
She told Britain's HELLO! magazine: "Women should not have any stigma attached to them if they choose to pursue careers.
"Life is about choices and I'm very happy with mine.
"I have had a wonderful time raising four children and I've also been lucky to have the support of a wonderful husband. Being with my husband and my children has always brought me the greatest joy and happiness in life."
