Four out of five people on a street would (presumably) (maybe) take a bullet for national treasure Meryl Streep, especially if it means being gifted with more goddamn delightful interviews like this one: Streep sat down with fellow national treasure Glenda Jackson for Interview, where the longtime pals reminisced about their lives, their careers, and oh yeah, left cryptic clues about who they’d shit-talk if given the chance. Turns out, it’s a lot of people! “I’m so glad we’re meeting. It’s so awful that we’re being recorded, because we could really tear the shit out of everyone,” Streep said as her very first sentence. “We’ve both been around for a long time.” Responded Jackson: “Indeed.” Knowing Streep, her line-reading of this comment will get her serious Oscars consideration for 2020.
