Meryl Streep’s Story from Dustin Hoffman’s and Robert Redford

Per Jeff Lenburg’s 2001 book “Dustin Hoffman: Hollywood’s Antihero,” the play was “All Over Town,” which debuted on Broadway in late 1974, when Streep was 25. Later that decade, the actors notoriously battled on Robert Benton’s “Kramer vs. Kramer” set, where they played divorcing parents. In Vanity Fair-excerpted “Her Again: Becoming Meryl Streep,” author Michael Schulman wrote that Hoffman escalated their fight scenes by slapping Streep and taunting her about her recently-deceased boyfriend, John Cazale.
