Meryl Streep doesn't believe all her films are good.

The 60-year-actress, who has won two Academy Awards and is nominated for another this year, is pleased with the way her career has panned out, even though she isn't a fan of all her work.

She said: "I feel very privileged, very lucky and very happy, though I don't think that every film I've ever done is brilliant.

"I'm not a producer - I just take interesting things that have come along."

Meryl also admits she wanted to take a break following her last movie 'It's Complicated' with Alec Baldwin.

She said: "Since finishing my last film I feel the need to stop for a moment and breathe, because I've worked so very hard in the last two and a half years.

"I'd usually make one film a year, maybe two, then two years would go by with no films and now I've just made seven back to back.

"Sometimes if you give that much you have to settle it down and let the field go fallow for one year, like the farmers do."
