What's Next for Meryl Streep?

Is this famous actress leaving Hollywood behind?

Throughout her long (and impressive) acting career, Meryl Streep has made history . . . time and time again. She recently took home the Golden Globe Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 74th Golden Globe Awards. But now, is  Hollywood's most talented actress taking a break from the screen? And if so, will it be indefinitely?

Meryl Streep made her film debut in 1977's Julia. Since then, she's gone on to win three Academy Awards, as well as eight Golden Globe Awards. Many critics (and fans) refer to her as the "Greatest Living Actress," and for good reason. She currently holds the record for the most Oscar nominations among both actors and actress, with a staggering 19. It's quite possible that she'll receive a groundbreaking 20th nomination for her performance in Florence Foster Jenkins.

But, could this likely nomination be met with the announcement of retirement?

When you think of Streep, a handful of different performances probably come to mind. What's your favorite? Kramer vs. Kramer? The Bridges of Madison County? Silkwood? Sophie's Choice? The Devil Wears Prada? From comedic to dramatic roles, and even musicals, the actress has literally done it all - well, except horror, but that's nothing to be disappointed about, right? Well, hopefully you enjoyed her in Jenkins, because it's the last time you're going to see her . . . for a year, anyway.

According to ImDb, Streep won't be returning to the big screen until 2018, and even then, she won't be headlining the film.

Streep will star alongside Emily Blunt and Colin Firth in Rob Marshall's Mary Poppins Returns. Streep and Blunt previously worked with Marshall on Into the Woods, a musical which earned Streep her 19th Academy Award nomination.

Yet, other than that, the star has no other projects lined up. But, there is no need to fear. Do you really think the actress is retiring? We're guessing the Mama Mia! headliner is simply just taken a much needed break for work.

And to be honest, we're already anxiously awaiting for her return.
