Meryl Streep, US film actress

When asked about her own attitude to religion in an interview in The Sunday Telegraph, she said: “I think I can understand the solace that’s available in the whole construct of religion. But I really don’t believe in the power of prayer, or things would have been avoided that have happened, that are awful. So it’s a horrible position as an intelligent, emotional, yearning human being to sit outside of the available comfort there. But I just can’t go there.” [1]
"Does religion play a part in Streep's own life, I wonder? 'I follow no doctrine,' she replies. 'I don't belong to a church or a temple or a synagogue or an ashram.'"
