Although a former Margaret Thatcher aide accused Meryl Streep of only making “The Iron Lady” to make herself more money, a source close to the actress revealed that Streep actually kept just $1 million for herself — a small fraction of her usual fee — and donated the rest to fund the National Women’s History Museum.

“The Iron Lady,” a biopic on Margaret Thatcher, stars Streep, Jim Broadbent, Alexander Head and Alexandra Roach. It comes out in theaters on Dec. 30.

Do you think Streep should win an Oscar for her role as Thatcher?
