According to the New York Post, Meryl Streep may have chopped her "Iron Lady" paycheck to $1 million, donating the rest to the National Women's History Museum.
Though the film isn’t out yet, Streep and her Margaret Thatcher biopic are already being bashed by friends and colleagues of the former Prime Minister. “Its only value is to make some money for Meryl Streep and whoever wrote it,” former Thatcher PR adviser Tim Bell told U.K. paper The Telegraph.
But Streep’s reported donation would suggest otherwise. Sources say the actress, 62, accepted less than her usual rate to make the film, and according to the Washington Post, she pledged $1 million to fund the National Women’s History Museum last fall.
"There's no women's history museum in Washington!" the actress remarked at the proposed project’s September 2010 gala. The actress is the NWHM’s National Spokesperson.
The planned museum is being privately funded, and the group plans to build a permanent site adjacent to Washington D.C.’s National Mall.
“The Iron Lady” will be released in select cities on December 30.

So the movie's not even out yet and it's being criticized. And Streep is criticized for donating a portion of her paycheck from the film. Yes, that all sounds reasonable and logical. Shame on her for doing her job, being brilliant at it, and accepting money in exchange for her work. And then donating money? Wow, that's awful.
So she's willing to diminish one the heroes of the cold war on the cheap?
FACT: TAX WRITE-OFF
Now when are you guys going to send out my big check because that's nice payday ....
Wish actors would stop lecturing the public on what we should think. Good for you, you can act, so can a trained monkey. At least the monkey isn't preachy and sanctimonious.
Quit being cheap! Buy a freaking billboard moron!
