Happy Birthday, Meryl Streep! The Oscar winner (and record-breaking nominee) turns 65 today. With a long and lauded career in film, Streep first attracted attention in her big screen debut in Julia, and followed up with a string of successes like Kramer vs. Kramer, Sophie’s Choice and The Iron Lady — all of which earned the actress Academy Awards and countless other accolades. (One recent highlight off the podium: a coveted spot in Ellen Degeneres’ Twitter breaking Oscar selfie.)

Despite hitting the big 6-5, Streep shows no sign of slowing down. Up next for the star? Roles in the highly anticipated films, The Giver and Into the Woods. We can’t wait!
