Meryl Streep and John Cazale were in a relationship.
Meryl Streep became involved with John Cazale when the two met while working together in a New York stage production. They stayed together until he died of bone cancer two years later.
Author Karina Longworth notes that despite her "high level... of stardom" for decades, Streep has managed to maintain a relatively normal personal life. Streep lived with actor John Cazale for three years until his death from lung cancer in March 1978. Al Pacino remarked that "I've hardly ever seen a person so devoted to someone who is falling away like John was. To see her in that act of love for this man was overwhelming." Streep said of his death, "I didn't get over it. I don't want to get over it. No matter what you do, the pain is always there in some recess of your mind, and it affects everything that happens afterwards. I think you can assimilate the pain and go on without making an obsession of it".
Streep married sculptor Don Gummer six months after Cazale's death.
He died at 42. I see no disrespect since there is no age indicated implies no longer here. RIP John you were a great artist. Fredo was a great performance. Meryl must miss you deeply.
It is quite disrespectful but it`s saying if they were together now that how old he be
i also think it is very disrespectul
How could John Cazale possibly be 72?? He died in around 1978 after The Deer Hunter - he was engaged to Streep at the time. Am i the only one who thinks its a bit disrespectful to imply he is still alive?
