STREEP CASTS OSCAR SPELL

Meryl Streep attends The 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards

MERYL STREEP’s definitely no “Iron Lady” when it comes to sales resistance.

Out shopping in Hollywood, the two-time Oscar winner – who’s up for “Best Actress” again – shook her head and walked past a Mexican woman selling horseshoe-shaped good-luck amulets on the street…then smiled, walked back and said: “You know, it certainly can’t hurt – maybe it’s an omen.”

So even though she’s already won more Oscar and Golden Globes nominations than any actor ever, La Streep bowed to superstition, browsed the brightly-colored, papier-mache amulets with assorted holy pictures, and finally picked one of a female saint, saying: “I’ll take this one – she looks just like me.”

Revealing her competitive spirit as she paid up, the star told the vendor: “I hope it works!”
