Meryl Streep would love to work with Bette Davis

The Oscar nominated actress says she's always admired the ''All About Eve'' star

''I've always admired the career of Bette Davis,'' says the actress, 57, who's nominated for her 14th Oscar for The Devil Wears Prada. ''She did All About Eve — a movie about being washed-up — when she was [around] 40! I wish people like her were still around to benefit from the extended shelf life of actresses and the advances women have made in show business. Of course, they'd probably be my competition, and I'd secretly hate them.''
