Julia and Meryl's Julia

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 7th 2009 1:23PM
Julie and Julia opens today, so I thought it would be fun to compare the real Julia Child with Meryl Streep's movie version. Below are two videos. The first is the real Julia Child making an omelet on her show The French Chef, and the second is a clip from the movie.

Child had a deeper voice than most impersonators would have you believe, but it looks like Streep does a good job.

Streep is okay, but she's no Dan Ackroyd.

lol Dan nailed the perfect Child impersonation! It's still one of my favorite skits from SNL.

Dan has an advantage in that he's almost as tall and muscular as Julia, while Streep is 8 inches shorter and naturally slimmer.

I think Meryl Streep can play Michael Jordan. That's how good she is.
