Meryl Streep and Don Gummer
The three-times Academy-Award winner Meryl Streep is a household name, as she’s been an integral part of the entertainment industry for almost fifty years, but how much do you know about her husband of 42 years, Don Gummer? The love story of Meryl Streep, one of Hollywood’s most accomplished stars, and Don Gummer, a sculptor, is one for the ages, and surely one that every Meryl Streep fan should be familiar with.
Back in the seventies, Streep was in a relationship with actor and co-star John Cazale (The Godfather), which seemed at the time like a once-in-a-lifetime romance. However, the actress has suffered a great tragedy when her partner passed away from an illness in the late seventies. It was her brother’s friend, Don Gummer, who offered the actress a helping hand in her time of tragedy and grief. Streep couldn’t bare the thought of staying in the apartment she shared with her former love, and so Don, offered his place. That was the beginning of their love story, which commenced several months later.
