Meryl Streep Wants to be a Gran

Hollywood star Meryl Streep dreams about having grandchildren.

The 63-year-old actress revealed her biggest desire was to be a gran in an interview with Croatian magazine Gloria while promoting her latest movie Hope Springs.

The film looks at a couple that after thirty years of marriage attend an intense, week-long counselling session to work on their relationship.

Asked what her biggest wish was now, the three-times Oscar winner replied: "I hope to get grandchildren."

With four children and a marriage lasting 34 years she was asked what advice she gives to to her three daughters about marriage, as this is a key topic of her new movie.

She said: "I feel my words mostly just wash past them - so to be honest to make sure some of it sticks I give them advice all the time."

She also revealed what she said to her youngest daughter Louisa about getting married.

She said: "I've told her to relax and enjoy it because I know she is always thinking about a million things. We need to know how to enjoy happy moments - those times that we are going to remember until the end of our lives."
