“You are an inspiration as a woman, as an artist, as a press-freedom advocate. I know I can’t ever hope to win the number of awards that you’ve won, but it does occur to me that we have something special in common, which is that we’ve both been married to my husband,” she joked.

“And honestly, the fact that you did it as Mr. and Mrs. Fantastic Fox just makes that so much less awkward,” she went on to say.

If you didn’t know, Meryl and George were characters in the 2009 Wes Anderson animated film, Fantastic Mr. Fox.
