Meryl Streep is Jessica Biel`s idol

London: Jessica Biel is inspired by the versatility of multiple Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep and hopes for a similar career graph.

The 28-year-old star considers the `Devil Wears Prada` star her idol and hopes for a similar long innings in showbiz, reported Contactmusic.

"Meryl Streep can do `Mamma Mia, `Doubt` and then `Julie and Julia` and nobody questions it. I would hope that for my future, that I can be challenged by different genres and characters, but at the same time I`ll never look back and think, `Oh I`ve made it now, you can relax,` because I don`t think successful women ever feel that way," the A-team star, said about the 61-year-old veteran.

Streep has delivered cult hits like `Sophie`s Choice`, `The Deer Hunter` and `Mamma Mia`, in a career spanning four decades. She also holds the record for the most Oscar nominations, a whopping sixteen times out of which she won twice.

Biel, who is dating popstar Justin Timberlake, said that she is also a fan of Kate Winslet and Cate Blanchett.

"There are lots of people I look up to, like Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet. They are the women who can do anything," said Biel.
