Meryl Streep may be one of the most praised actresses in Hollywood but she’s also a ‘complete bitch’.
That is, according to James Corden, who went on to brand his Into The Woods co-star as ‘the worst’ at the Costume Designers Guild Awards in Los Angeles.
On stage, Corden recalled the first time he met Streep at a London restaurant. While introducing himself, he claims she said: “I’ll have the lemon-crusted salmon and a Diet Coke with no ice.”
Presenting Streep with a distinguished collaborator prize, he joked:
What I’m trying to say is, and it’s time that someone said it, she’s a complete bitch. She is the worst.
Now listen, I disagree with almost everything Donald Trump has ever said but when he tweeted that… I’m joking, of course. It’s great to see someone like Meryl finally recognised with an award.
“What is she going to do with this? This is going to be a door stop for the Golden Globe room,” he added, referring to her nine Golden Globe awards.
Last month, Trump branded Streep ‘one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood’ after she criticised him at the Golden Globes.

The 67-year-old did not mention Trump as she collected her award on Tuesday, but revealed she had originally wanted to work as a costume designer.
I have to dedicate this because it means a lot to me.
Not because I wanted to be a costume designer – which I did – but because my mother really wanted to be a costume designer.
Halloween was like the run-up to fashion week in my house.
As for Meryl’s relationship with Corden, it seems the two have gotten over their awkward first encounter and now appear to be good pals.
