Meryl Streep's Husband

Oscar Date 411: Meryl Streep

Oscar Date 411: Meryl Streep

When it comes to acting and love, Meryl Streep has staying power. The Iron Lady winner has been married to sculptor Don Gummer since 1978. He accompanied her to this year's Oscars, and she touchingly thanked him in her acceptance speech, saying "I want him to know that everything I value most in our lives you've given me."

So how did they meet? After her partner John Cazale, of The Godfather and Deer Hunter, died of bone cancer in 1978, Meryl got an offer to move into the vacant apartment of her brother's friend, Don Gummer. Don was traveling in Europe, so he didn't mind if Meryl stayed. When he got back, she didn't move out, and within six months they got married. They now have four kids together. Check out photos of the long-term couple's latest outing last night!
