Meryl Streep Receives Medal of Freedom From President Obama - the Nation's Highest Civilian Honor!

President Barack Obama puts the Presidential Medal of Freedom on award winning actress Meryl Streep during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House on Monday (November 24) in Washington, DC.

The 65-year-old actress was awarded the nation’s highest civilian honor alongside others including Stevie Wonder and Tom Brokaw.

The evening before, Meryl attended a screening for her film Into the Woods alongside her co-stars Emily Blunt and Anna Kendrick – the film is already getting lots of Oscar buzz, but will not hit theaters until Christmas day.

Congratulations to Meryl on her huge accomplishment!

FYI: Emily is carrying a Marni bag.

    So this is only given to celebrities? I never understand these silly awards from the President. He should focus on everyone who donates their time and money to help others. Some people make it their only job to help others. We never hear about those folks receiving honors from the President.
