Jessica Biel says Meryl Streep is her screen idol.

The 'A-Team' star is in awe of the Oscar-winning actress and hopes she can go on to emulate her incredible career which has spanned four decades and included such films as 'Sophie's Choice', 'The Deer Hunter' and 'The Devil Wears Prada'.

Jessica, 28, said: "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 'Elizabethtown' star admits there are other actresses she admires for their versatility including 61-year-old Meryl.

She told Stylist magazine: "There are lots of people I look up to, like Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet as well as Meryl. Those are the women that can do anything."
