MERYL STREEP AND DON GUMMER – 41 YEARS
It was a tragedy that brought Academy Award-winning actress and her husband Don Gummer together. Meryl was dating actor John Cazale, her Deer Hunter co-star and was very happy with him, but in 1978, he passed away due to lung cancer. For support, she turned to her brother’s friend, sculptor Don Gummer, who helped her overcome her grief. Just six months later, the couple was married in her parent’s home garden.
It’s now been 41 years and this couple is still going strong. After becoming parents to 4 kids, this senior couple is learning how to become grandparents for the first time, as their daughter, actress Mamie Gummer became a mom in March of 2019 and Merlyn couldn’t be happier!
