Streep, Adams on Making of 'Doubt': Co-Stars Wax Poetic on Film, Why Nuns' Habits Are Liberating

Some actresses might find the prospect of playing a nun – dressed from head to toe in a black habit – daunting, but not Meryl Streep, and not because, with her talents, she seems able to do anything.

“I found nuns’ habits to be liberating, not only because they are a negation of things that women in the outside world have to contend with, but also because they focus on the true essence of a woman – her face and her hands,” Streep said while discussing her starring role in “Doubt.”
