Yes, Meryl Streep Is Wearing Fake Teeth on 'Big Little Lies'

By

We don’t need to tell you that Meryl Streep goes above and beyond for her craft. The actress has three Oscars (and a total of 21 nominations) to prove it. 

So when it was announced that the 69-year-old would be joining the second season of HBO’s Big Little Lies, we knew immediately that we’d be dazzled by her performance. But even the most diehard fans might not have realized how far the Mamma Mia! star will go to fully embody a character. 

Meryl Streep wore fake teeth for her role on Big Little Lies.

In the series, Meryl plays Nicole Kidman’s mother-in-law, Mary Louise Wright. She shows up in Monterey, Calif. after (Spoiler Alert!) the sudden death of her son, Perry. In order to look more like Alexander Skarsgård, who returns as Perry in flashbacks during Season 2, Meryl had prosthetic teeth made.
