That’s actress Mamie Gummer, the daughter of Meryl Streep and sculptor Donald Gummer, at a Whitney Museum gala last night.
Granted, the flashy dress is what caught my eye, but then I couldn’t stop looking at the Streepyness of her face.
Mamie was born in 1983 (her given name is Mary), so she’s 26 now. Here’s a comparison with her mom, age 32, in the 1981 film The French Lieutenant’s Woman:
Side note: Gummer made her screen debut as a toddler in the Streep-Nicholson film Heartburn. She was billed (for reasons I can’t uncover) as Natalie Stern, and earned this shout-out in the New York Times review: “In particular, Natalie Stern, an inordinately cute baby, is already accomplished enough to steal scenes even from Miss Streep.”
The IMDB says Gummer had a small part in Ang Lee‘s 2009 comedy Taking Woodstock and has four flicks currently filming or in post-production: a drama, a comedy, a horror film and a romance.
