The five words for the rest of Meryl's life should've been "The Academy Award goes to..."

So, Stephen was caring about the unity of the nations since he was 8 years old. Totally checks out.
Ms. Streep is a goddamn national treasure.

Fun fact: Meryl Streep is made up of 100% recycled Oscar Nomination envelopes
we must protect meryl streep at all costs - absolutely precious
M S:
There is a whole character and backstory behind everything Meryl Streep says. She is so captivating
Meryl Streep is one of the most down to Earth people I've ever worked with, and I photographed or did lighting on photo shoots for almost every A-list celebrity in the 1990s. Sweet. So incredibly humble, too. Not surprising at all, but quite refreshing at the time.

Streep guessed the number! How is no one talking about this? Colbert was so blown away he was like, ... “uh, ok.”

Meryl Streep is 👸! And Colbert has kept us highly entertained during the dumpster fire 🔥 that is the current administration of lame ducks
She wins for the best song to listen to for eternity. Hejira is one of the best songs ever created and would be incredibly soothing forever.
I’m traveling in some vehicle
I’m Sitting in some cafe
A defector from the petty wars
That shell shock love away

Well I looked at the granite markers
Those tributes to finality to eternity
And then I looked at myself
Chicken scratching for my immortality

There’s more and it’s all beautiful.

Joann Litt
Joann Litt:
meryl streep just seems like the most fun and smart person.
Oooh! I *totally* agree with Meryl's answer to "What happens when we die?". Except maybe the influencing part... that's more like wishful thinking. Or maybe magical thinking. She IS magic, isn't she? And I hope she continues to be so for a very very very VERY long time :-)

Her pause, then "egg sack" slayed me. 😂

Man, I was transported to the movie Adaptation whenever she laughed, even when she's silent, Meryl is unmistakenly Meryl. Cool.
Indigo Wolf
Indigo Wolf:
She is such an awesome person very down-to-earth grounded. And I liked it shirt she was wearing I have seen her wear it before but I think it's a great color on her.

"Save Me" , off of the album Ingenue by KD Lang. If it had to go on forever, it'd have to be "save me".
In appearance and even mannerism and vibe, Ashley Johnson is the perfect younger Meryl for a biopic

OMG! Meryl Streep looks like 35-40 max years old. Unbelievable👏👏👏
Great answers Ms Streep, however: Really the scariest spiders are - Redbacks and Funnel Webs: both are Australian, can kill you and redbacks hide in sand pits and under toilet seats!

Meryl Streep is the greatest actor of all. Yes, certainly among men/male actors, as much as it hurts their egos to know this
