Meryl Streep’s publicist has confirmed that she and her husband Don Gummer have been separated for over six years. The award-winning actress and the American sculptor had been married since 1978. Streep and Gummer have four children, including daughters Mamie Gummer, Grace Gummer, and Louisa Gummer, who are all involved in acting, and son Henry Wolfe Gummer.
Streep, known for her roles in movies like “Kramer Vs Kramer,” “Sophie’s Choice,” and “The Iron Lady,” has recently appeared in projects such as the comedy series “Only Murders In The Building,” the drama “Let Them All Talk,” and the Netflix satire “Don’t Look Up.” She has received 21 Academy Award nominations and has won three Oscars.
In her Oscar acceptance speech for “The Iron Lady,” Streep expressed gratitude to Gummer, saying, “First I’m going to thank Don because when you thank your husband at the end of the speech they play him out with the music and I want him to know that everything I value most in our lives, you’ve given me.”
