Everyone loves Meryl Streep. It’s a known fact. And why wouldn’t you? She is perfection.
President Obama put it best this weekend when he was bestowing upon Streep the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
I love Meryl Streep. Her husband knows I love her. Michelle knows I love her. There’s nothing they can do about it.Though Obama may have some competition for the title of #1 Meryl Fan. During an Into the Woods Q&A this weekend, James Corden told the story (which you can watch over at Yahoo) of how Meryl Streep almost died (or, fine, at least almost took a nasty fall), and a pregnant Emily Blunt snapped into superhero mode and leaping to her rescue, while Corden and director Rob Marshall looked on, horrified. To which I imagine Meryl responded as such:
You know those stories about women’s adrenaline giving them super strength to lift cars off their children? That’s what happens when Meryl Streep is in trouble. Too all of us. She’s that important.
Side note: I think this is the most I’ve heard James Corden talk. What are we feeling Late Late Show-wise? Entertaining or rambly?
