Meryl Streep is planning to publish a book of the 14 acceptance speeches from the Academy Awards that she never got to use.



The 62-year-old actress has been nominated for Academy Awards 16 times in her career, but won just twice - in 1979 for Best Supporting Actress for 'Kramer Vs Kramer' and again in 1982 when she picked up Best Actress for 'Sophie's Choice' - but she admits she is always prepared in case she does take home the honour.


"I sit there every year with a speech," Contactmusic quoted Streep as saying. "I've got 14 speeches I've never given. They're all really good. "One day I'll put them in a book," she added.
